Queens Park Rangers vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game from Loftus Road features two sides who were not expected to start the campaign so well yet have done so. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. It was a 2-1 defeat to former boss Neil Warnock and Cardiff for QPR in their last encounter. They had taken an early lead through Matt Smith but the Welsh side got themselves back together and turned the game around creating a lot more chances. Ipswich suffered their first league defeat of the season as they went down at Portman Road against Fulham. The home side can have few complaints as the visitors dominated possession and created more chances. The home side has come out on top in each of the last four meetings between this pair with the two fixtures last season being won by the hosts. The game at Loftus Road ended 2-1 with a goal each from Idrissa Sylla and Pawel Wszolek for the London outfit while the Suffolk side replied through Tom Lawrence.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The prices on the match market seem about fair, QPR are a decent home team though I would not want to take shorter than evens on them. Ipswich can cause a few problems but this is not a price I would take on them so I will look elsewhere for my bets. Both teams have some solid striking options while both are well drilled units neither are elite defences so YES in the both teams to score market appeals. I think we could have to wait for goals so take the game to have no goal before 30:00.

YES both teams to score

NO goal before 30:00.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

It has been a decent start to the season for QPR who have two wins, one draw and two defeats from their opening five league games. Three of their next four are at Loftus Road and they all come against sides who are expected to struggle this season. Each of their fixtures in the league have seen a total of exactly two or three goals with three of five seeing both teams score. Matt Smith and Connor Washington both have two league goals for the season. It was a quiet deadline for QPR whose only major move was the signing of Exeter winger David Wheeler who looks a good addition but the fans were hoping for more to push on from their solid start to the season.

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Joel Lynch (hamstring) is listed day-to-day while James Perch (dislocated kneecap) has no time frame on his return. Grant Hall (tendon) and Jordan Cousins (hamstring) are both set to miss out on at least a month of football.

Ipswich Town Preview

Four wins from five games has been a strong start to the Championship from an Ipswich side who were expected to struggle. They sat second going in to the international break with four of their next six against teams thought to be bottom-half sides. They have not struggled for goals this season with nine netted from their first five with four for Martyn Waghorn and three for Joe Garner. They have probably looked more open at the back than Mick McCarthy would like shipping six in their last four. It was a quiet deadline day for Ipswich, though the loan signing of Callum Connolly from Everton looks good business for a player who was part of the England Under 20 World Cup winning unit and will benefit from game time.

Ipswich Town Team News

Emyr Huws is closing in on a return after an Achilles tendon problem.
