QPR vs MillwallEnglish Championship, KO: 19:00 Mar 17, 2021, Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium
QPR continue their quest for a top 10 finish as they welcome Millwall to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium for a midweek English Championship fixture. Both teams appear evenly matched at the moment and are likely to cancel each other out.
QPR head into Wednesday’s match off the back of a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to struggling Huddersfield Town. They saw plenty of the ball but created just one opportunity of note when Todd Kane was denied by the goalkeeper at close range.
The Hoops have seen their playoff hopes slowly slip away. They have won just two of their last five matches and are currently in the bottom half of the table, 17 points behind Barnsley in the final playoff place.
Mark Warburton’s men are just as inconsistent at home with three wins and two defeats from their last five matches at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Millwall were victorious in their last Championship outing as they triumphed 1-0 at Derby County. Shaun Hutchinson’s effort right on the stroke of halftime proved to be the difference as they beat off several attempts from the Rams to earn the win.
It was only the second win in six matches for Millwall who are just as inconsistent as QPR. The Lions are 10th on the table with slim hopes of making the playoffs as they sit 12 points behind Barnsley in sixth place.
Gary Rowett’s men have a decent record on the road with just one defeat in their last five away matches. They beat Reading 2-1 in that run while they also played out two 1-1 draws against Cardiff City and Luton Town.
