Newly promoted Coventry face QPR at their relocated home of St. Andrew’s as they kickoff Gameweek two of this season’s Sky Bet Championship on Friday night.
The Sky Blues have struggled early on following their promotion from League One, losing last week to Bristol City and crashing out of the EFL Cup to lower-league opposition in the form of Gillingham on Tuesday. Manager Mark Robins has also never beaten QPR in his managerial career in six attempts (one draw, five defeats).
On the other hand, QPR started with a win over Nottingham Forest as Scottish striker Lyndon Dykes scored from 12 yards on debut as he was placed on penalty duty in the 2-0 success. This came just five days after the former Livingston man also opened his account for Scotland, scoring in a 2-1 win away to the Czech Republic in the UEFA Nations League.
QPR showed excellent scoring form last season notching 67 in their 46 league games, ranking them fifth in the division and with Dykes in form, we’re backing QPR to win with Dykes to get on the scoresheet at 10/3.
