QPR vs Preston North End

, KO: 17:15 Apr 20, 2024, Loftus Road
Preston North End

QPR and Preston North End square off in a Championship fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to snap out of difficult spells. Neither side has been convincing lately and as they appear evenly matched at the moment, could be set to cancel each other out.

QPR head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 3-0 defeat to Hull City in their previous Championship fixture they struggled to cope with the superior quality of the hosts and were second best throughout the encounter.

That result extends QPR’s recent poor run of form as they are now winless in their last three matches. Marti Cifuentes’ men have been beaten twice in that run and are now just three points above the relegation zone.

QPR have also found things difficult at home with just two wins from their last seven matches at Loftus Road. They have also lost two of their last three matches in front of their fans.

Preston North End are also coming off a 3-0 defeat as they were beaten by Southampton last time out in the Championship. They were no match for the playoff chasing Saints and finished with just a single attempt on target.

That defeat means Preston North End have now picked up just one win in their last five matches. However, unlike QPR, Ryan Lowe’s men have no relegation danger as they sit 10th on the standings.

Preston North End have also found things difficult on their recent travels and are winless in their last three away matches. However, prior to that run, they had claimed three straight wins on the road, beating the likes of Cardiff City, Coventry City and Plymouth Argyle.

QPR gave the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 19/20 by William Hill to claim the win. A victory for Preston North End is valued at 3/1 by bet365 while Unibet is offering odds of 5/2 for a draw.
