Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Nottingham Forest and Bristol City, Wolverhampton will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they square off against Queens Park Rangers at their Molineux Stadium. The Wolves aim to climb to the top half of the standings and given that Paul Lambert’s men have been impressive in front of goal of late, home win should be considered in this one. QPR have been slipping down the standings week by week and they are on a seven-game losing run in the Championship ahead of the trip to West Midlands. The Hoops failed to find the net in previous four league games and, taking everything into account, we predict that Wolverhampton will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game. Portuguese midfielder Helder Costa has been in a fine form of late and he will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Danny Batth):
At the age of 10 Daniel Danny Batth joined Wolverhampton football academy. He was soon named the captain of the Wolves youth team and nobody was surprised when he made his debut for the senior team. The defender, who was born on 21 September, 1990 scored nine goals in 140 league appearances for Wolverhampton, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Colchester United, Sheffield United and their bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday on loan as well. Danny Batth won the Football League One with Wolverhampton in the 2013/2014 season and, speaking of his individual awards, he was named Wolves Young Professional of the Year in the 2009/2010 campaign. Batth book his place in the 2013/2014 PFA League One Team of the Year as well. The 191-cm-tall centre back scored his first professional goal on 20 February in Colchester United’s 1-0 victory over Oldham Athletic. Daniel Batth was born in Brierley Hill, West Midlands and he is the only footballer to play in all 46 matches for Wolves in the 2013/2014 season.
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.
