Our football match prediction:
Loftus Road Stadium will host a small London derby between Queens Park Rangers and Fulham. The Hoops aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Championship, whilst the Cottagers are eager to build on a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. QPR share the spoils with the likes of Burton Albion and Barnsley in previous two league fixtures and it has to be noted that they were on the verge of suffering a loss to Paul Heckingbottom’s troops at Oakwell Stadium. Fulham, on the other hand, climbed to 11th place in the standings thanks to a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest and they are only four points behind the play-offs berth in the Championship standings. Both teams are likely to go for a win in Friday’s football match and we predict that both sides will find the net in the local derby.

Conor Washington is a Northern Ireland international who began his senior career at St Ives Town. He scored 52 goals in 50 appearances for the club and in 2012 he joined Newport County. He was struggling to adapt to the new surroundings and, as a result, he netted no more than 5 goals in 39 appearances for the Rodney Parade outfit. In 2014 he signed a deal with Peterborough United and two years later he moved to Queens Park Rangers. He played just ten games for the Hoops in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he failed to open his goal-scoring account. Conor Washington is a striker who made his Northern Ireland debut on 24 March, 2016 and four days later his scored his first ever goal for the national team, in a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Windsor Park. The Northern Ireland footballer was eligible to play for Scotland through his mother. He was born in Chantham, Kent, England on 18 May, 1992.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Championship. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition. Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight. Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League. The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
