Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game features the league leaders travelling to the side who just beat the previous team at the top. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. QPR defeated Wolves 2-1 last time out in a result that in no way flattered the home side who continue to raise their game for those big occasions. The Rs had a goal each from Conor Washington and Matt Smith to thank for enabling them to claim all three points. Sheffield United moved to the top of the league with a third straight victory as they saw off Leeds at Elland Road. Billy Sharp and David Brooks were the goalscorers on that occasion as they emerged victorious 2-1. The last time these sides met came in the 2015 FA Cup and the Blades won that one 3-0 at Loftus Road. In fact, each of the last three meetings have ended 3-0 with the Rs winning two of these.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Victory last time out over Wolves means that bookmakers are wary of backing against the Hoops and make them slight favourites for the game. This is probably harsh on the visitors who have won each of their three at bottom placed sides and I will back them to get something here at decent odds. I will take them with the draw no bet option even though they have not drawn any of their last 14 I think QPR are a side who would take a point from this game. Given the fast nature of how they start games I also like the look of the Blades to be leading the game at half-time. They have netted 13 times in the opening 45 minutes of matches this season.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

Victory last time out put to an end a run of seven fixtures without a victory for the Hoops though it is just one defeat from their last six with four draws in six. Each of their next four is against a side in the top-half of the Championship table. At Loftus Road, they have been strong with four victories, two draws and just one defeat. Five of their next six visitors though are all sides that are currently placed in the top eight of the division. It is now five in a row and ten of the last 11 that has seen both teams find the back of the net. Idrissa Sylla has netted in two of their last three while Conor Washington has scored in the last two at home.

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have won each of their last three and five of their last six to climb to the top of the table. United are an interesting side in that they have not drawn a game at all this season winning ten and losing four. Away from Bramall Lane, they have been decent winning on four occasions and losing the other three. They have won all three on the road against bottom-half sides defeating Sunderland, Bolton and local rivals Wednesday. United have a strong defence with the 12 goals they have conceded the joint second best in the division while they have netted 20 goals themselves. In just one of their last six have they failed to net in the first-half and 13 of the 20 they have scored have come in the opening 45 minutes.

Sheffield United Team News

Caolan Lavery (eye) and Richard Stearman (hamstring) are closing in on returns while Kieron Freeman (dislocated elbow) is out until December.
