Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wednesday’s football game at DW Stadium pits together Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers, the two mid-table sides. Following three consecutive wins in the Championship, the Latics suffered a 3-0 loss to Wigan Athletic in their last league fixture. Wigan Athletic are safe for now, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season.
It has to be noted that both Garner (suspension) and Balogun (injury) miss the QPR game. The Hoops, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Middlesbrough, and they managed to get one. The capital club are eight points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they would be happy with one point from the match. The two teams seem to be evenly matched, meaning that there is a big value in betting on draw. Attacker Jordan Hugill, who picked up a knock against Boro, is unlikely to feature against Wigan.
Highlighted Player (Lee Evans):
Lee Evans is a right-footed footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic in the Championship. Evans played for the likes of Malpas FC, Bristol Rovers and Newport County during his youth career and he continued playing for the Ironsides at senior level.
The 186-cm-tall midfielder then joined the Wolves, scoring 3 goals in 59 appearances for the club in the league. After ending his loan spells with Bradford City and Wigan Athletic, the Wales international moved to Sheffield United in the winter of 2018 for an undisclosed fee. However, at the end of the 2017/2018 season he returned to Wigan Athletic (loan).
After making 21 appearances for the club, Lee Evans signed a permanent deal with the Latics on January 1, 2019. Speaking of his international career, the Wigan Athletic midfielder made his Wales debut on November 14, 2017 in a 1-1 draw with Panama. His main position is central midfield, but he is used as a defensive midfielder as well.
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.
