Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Loftus Road pits together Queens Park Rangers and Hull City. The Hoops aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Norwich City, but the game against Hull City will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Tigers have been producing fine displays at the start of the season and despite the fact that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Wolves at weekend, the visitors are definitely capable of grabbing something from the QPR game. The capital club are eyeing their second home win of the season, but they would be happy with one point from the match as well. Taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the cards. You should bear in mind that it has been ten years since Queens Park Rangers recorded their last win over Hull City in the Championship.
