Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following back-to-back wins over Leeds United and Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers suffered a dip in form. The Hoops were beaten by Barnsley on Matchday 3 and they failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Preston North End at the weekend. The capital club aim to start a new winning run in the English second tier and they are widely expected to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match against Wigan Athletic. The Latics suffered a 4-3 loss to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground at the weekend and, as a result, they dropped to 17th place in the Championship standings. QPR are not regarded as good travellers, but we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s game against Wigan, who experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to Nottingham Forest. In their last meeting at the DW Stadium the two teams played out a goalless draw.

Highlighted Team (Queen Park Rangers):
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.
