The match

Preston North End have worked their way to the promotion playoff slots and will be looking to stay in the top six when they host QPR in their next game in the Championship. The home team will go into this game in sixth place with 34 points while QPR have 31 points in ninth place. Preston returned to action with a win after the World Cup break, beating Blackburn Rovers 4-1 away from home for their fourth win in five matches. Preston had lost their last game before the break and the target here is to build on after putting that loss behind them, and one area of concern for them will be in defence. They have one clean sheet only in the last five matches, a 1-0 win over Swansea and four of their last five matches in the Championship have produced over 2.5 goals.

QPR will be looking to arrest the drop they’ve had in the Championship; they come into this match winless in their last six league clashes. This bad run has seen them get pushed away from the top six. They come into this game having failed to score in four of their last five matches and in the last three games, they have conceded two or more goals and have no clean sheet in the last four. This poor run of form is also captured in their away matches; they’ve failed to win any of their last four away matches in the league and have no goal in the last three.

Key Statistics

  • Four of Preston’s last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
  • Preston have scored more than a goal in four of their last five matches.
  • QPR are winless in their last six matches.
  • QPR have failed to score in three straight away games.
  • QPR have conceded twice or more in three of four away league matches.

The bet of our experts

Preston are clearly the favorites here and playing at home against a seriously struggling side will build their advantage. While Preston haven’t kept a lot of clean sheets, this is a game their defence should not be troubled. QPR are winless in six matches ahead of this and we are backing the hosts to win.
