QPR vs Wycombe WanderersEnglish Championship, KO: 19:00 Mar 9, 2021, Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium
QPR continue their march away from the relegation zone as they welcome Wycombe Wanderers to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium for a midweek English Championship clash. The Hoops have a good home record and should have no problems seeing off the bottom club.
Mark Warburton's men earned a 2-0 victory at Bristol City in their previous Championship fixture. Ilias Chair and Robert Dickie got the goals in the first half that decided the contest.
The result ended a run of two straight defeats for the Hoops who are now up to 16th on the table. They are eight points above the relegation zone and will be keen to continue their push towards a place in the top half.
QPR often do their best work at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium and head into Tuesday’s match with three wins from their last four home matches. Promotion chasers Brentford and Bournemouth are among their major scalps in that run.
Wycombe Wanderers are coming off a 2-0 defeat at Stoke City last time out in the Championship. It was another poor performance for Wanderers, who were second best for much of the contest and finished with just two attempts on target.
Gareth Ainsworth's men have endured a difficult campaign and have spent much of the season rooted to the bottom of the table. They are 12 points from safety and look likely to take the plunge back into League One.
Wycombe have claimed just five wins all season and head to London off the back of three straight defeats. They have also struggled in attack, failing to score in four of their last five matches.
How the bookies view it
With QPR often doing their best work at home, I am tipping them to ease past the bottom side.
Head to head
QPR have three wins while Wycombe Wanderers have been victorious twice from nine previous matches. There have been four stalemates between both teams including a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in December.
Players to watch
Striker Charlie Austin has bagged five goals since joining QPR in January and is priced at 11/10 by bet365 to score anytime while the first goal is valued at 15/4 by the same firm. Midfielder Ilias Chair is also one to keep an eye on and could be worth a punt at 11/5 with bet365.
Wycombe have struggled in attack this season but Scott Kashket is still one to watch despite netting just three goals this term. Bet365 has the striker at 10/3 to score anytime while Uche Ikpeazu is priced at 7/2 by Vbet in the same market.
Anything else catch the eye?
With Wycombe failing to score in four of their last five matches, a bet on QPR keeping a clean sheet could be worth a punt at 7/5 with Sporting Index. The Hoops can also be backed to earn a win to nil at 91/50 with Sporting Index.
Wycombe have also seen under 2.5 goals in their last five matches and a similar outcome is valued at 17/16 by Sporting Index.
