            QPR vs Preston Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Queens Park Rangers will be aiming to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone when they host Preston North End at Loftus Park on Saturday afternoon.

            The hosts are currently sitting perilously in 19th position in the Championship table. In what is a very congested bottom half of the table, there is currently just a three point gap between Rangers and the drop zone.

            QPR come into this weekend on the back of a poor run of form which has seen them go three games in the league without a win. This run included a disappointing 2-0 loss against Sheffield Wednesday and a draw against Plymouth, sides who are both fellow relegation rivals.

            In their last league outing, Rangers were defeated 3-0 by Hull City. Hull took the lead early on through Ozan Tufan before that advantage was doubled midway through the half by Fabio Carvalho. Any hopes of a second-half recovery by the R’s were put to bed when the Tigers netted their third shortly after the interval.

            Preston are currently sitting in 10th position in the Championship table and still have a good chance of being involved in the Playoffs. With just three games left in the campaign, the Lillywhites are just two points behind the final playoff spot.

            The visitors’ form has been inconsistent ahead of this weekend. Preston were in action against Southampton on Tuesday evening. The large volume of games and travelling may lead to Preston being tired ahead of this weekend.

            QPR and Preston have a long and storied history, with the two sides having first faced each other in the 1949 division two. In total, these two sides met each other on 52 occasions, with Preston having a superior record, having won 20 of the meetings.

            It was QPR who recorded a convincing victory when these sides met earlier on in the season. Paul Smyth and Chris Willock were on target as new QPR recorded a 2-0 win over Preston at Deepdale.

            Rangers had struggled in the difficult conditions in the opening 45 minutes, but goals from Smyth and Willock were enough to secure a second straight victory for the first time this season.

            It is the home side who are heavily favoured at the bookies heading into this weekend and they are currently priced @ 1/1, whilst an away win for Preston is priced @ 29/10 and a draw is @ 23/10.

            We are backing Preston to win and under 2.5 goals in the game. The Lillywhites come into the game on the back of the superior league form and we expect them to have the edge in this game. Five of Preston's last seven games have had under 2.5 goals so we expect this to be a low scoring game.

            Queens Park Rangers have a couple of injury concerns to contend with ahead of this weekend’s game. Jack Colback and Michael Frey are both not expected to feature. However Jake Clarke-Salter may make a return to the matchday squad here.

            Ryan Lowe confirmed after the Norwich City fixture that midfielder Ali McCann will likely miss the remainder of the season with a thigh strain. North End were, however, boosted last weekend by the return of Alan Browne and Ryan Ledson, while Ched Evans got his first minutes since January. Ben Whiteman, Brad Potts and Liam Millar are all likely to miss out.
