Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wednesday’s football game at Bet365 Stadium pits together Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers, the two bottom-table sides. The Potters are eager to put an end to their four-game losing run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the capital club. Midfielder Josh Laurent remains on the sidelines with an ankle problem, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Hoops, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league matches. QPR are eager to escape the relegation zone and we predict that they will take advantage of Stoke City’s poor form. As for the away team, teenager Rayan Kolli continues to miss out with a leg injury, while both Lewis Baker and Luke Cundle are pushing for recalls to the starting XI. In the first half of the season Queens Park Rangers defeated Stoke City 4-2.
Highlighted Player (Jack Bonham):
Jack Bonham is a professional footballer who was born in Stevenage on the 14th of September, 1993. The 26-year-old, although having born in England, is an Irish International and has featured for the Republic of Ireland's Under-17 team five times.
At the club level, he began his youth career with Watford and signed his first professional contract in September 2010 at the age of 17. Bonham's first-ever professional appearance came on the 4th of May, 2013 as a substitute against Leeds United in the final game of the 12/13 Championship season.
This appearance marked the 1.92 m standing goalkeeper's only appearance in a Watford shirt. Bonham then went on to play for clubs like Brentford, Carlisle United and Bristol Rovers before eventually joining Gillingham at the start of the 2019 season on a two-year contract. He's since featured nine times for the club and kept two clean sheets.
Highlighted Team (QPR):
Queens Park Rangers are well known as QPR. The capital club was founded in 1886 and Loftus Road Stadium is QPR’s ground. Loftus Road Stadium was opened in 1904 and the capacity of the venue 18,439. However, it has to be noted that no less than 35,353 spectators watched the game between QPR and Leeds on 27 April, 1974.
The Hoops finished the 1975/1976 First Division campaign in second position in the standings, just behind champions Liverpool. This is considered the club’s biggest success, but Queens Park Rangers made it to the FA Cup final in 1982 as well.
QPR were beaten by fellow capital club Tottenham Hotspur in the title game, but they did well to lift the League Cup trophy in 1967. Queens Park’s main rivals are Brentford, Chelsea and Fulham, but other clubs based in London are considered QPR’s rivals as well. The colour of QPR’s shirts is blue and white.
