Queens Park Rangers vs Preston North End Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the table as 11th plays host to 18th. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

QPR saw their five-game unbeaten run come to an end last time out as they went down 1-0 at Sheffield United. The Blades just about deserved their three points in a game low on chances and quality.

Preston saw their winless run stretched to five league matches as they drew 1-1 at home to Swansea. A Daniel Johnson penalty put them level but when Josh Earl was dismissed nine minutes from time they were left hanging on for a point.

The reverse fixture came on the opening day of the season at Deepdale and saw North-End win 1-0 that day. An Alan Browne goal proved the difference in a match that had little to separate the two on expected goals.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

QPR have won five of their last at home and against a Preston side who have lost three of their last four I think they look the call. The visitors have done good work in the transfer window but it will take time to integrate these players into the side while the Rs are an established team.

Preston do look capable of getting on the score sheet as they have done in each of their last four so back a home win and both teams to net.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Rs are without a win in three in the league through they have also lost just one of their last six. They sit 11th in the table which has them five places and four points off Derby in sixth.

At Loftus Road, the London outfit are tough to beat winning five of their last seven and losing just one of their last eight. The last two league visitors here have failed to net while they have conceded just two in their last four at their own place.

QPR have failed to find the back of the net in two of their last three in the Championship through they did score two in the other. Three of their last five have seen them keep a clean sheet.

 

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Angel Rangel (thigh), Tomer Hemed (groin) and Geoff Cameron (ankle) are doubts while Olamide Shodipo (thigh) is a long-term absentee.  Massimo Luongo is on international duty.

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites have taken just two points from their last five fixtures and are still involved in issues at the bottom. They are four places and seven points away from the relegation zone.

Away from Deepdale, the Lancashire side have lost their last two and three of their last four with the other a victory at Forest. Just one of their last five on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Preston have netted in each of their last four but have scored two or more in just one of their last eight. In none of their last six and in just one of their previous ten have they kept a clean sheet.

 

Preston North End Team News

Ben Davies (unknown), Callum Robinson and Lewis Moult, (both hamstring) are hoping to return soon while Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both knee) are long-term absentees. Josh Earl is unavailable through suspension.
