          Sunderland vs QPR Preview, Tips & Stats

          QPR visit the Stadium of Light this Saturday to take on Sunderland in the Championship. Sunderland look to move into the top half of the table with a win, whereas QPR aim to put some breathing room between themselves and the relegation zone.

          Sunderland currently sit 12th in the Championship after 37 games. The Black Cats have 14 wins, five draws and 18 losses, leaving them on 47 points, three points behind Cardiff and Preston.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Sunderland have five losses.

          Sunderland took a 1 - 0 lead into halftime against Birmingham, Jack Clarke scoring in the 22nd minute. However, in the second half, Jordan James and Koji Miyoski both scored to give Birmingham the 2 - 1 win over Sunderland. The visit from Swansea saw Ronald score a quickfire brace in the first half to give Swansea the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Luke O’Nien did score with 15 minutes to go for Sunderland, but The Black Cats were unable to find another goal and slumped to a 2 - 1 loss.

          Josh Sargent scored the only goal of the game in the 81st minute to give Norwich the 1 - 0 win, with Sunderland unable to convert any of their 12 shots. It was another 1 - 0 loss for Sunderland, this time against top of the league Leicester. Jamie Vardy was the only name on the scoresheet even with Sunderland having seven more shots than Leicester.

          The last time out for Sunderland was against Southampton. A goal from Stuart Armstrong and a penalty from Adam Armstrong gave Southampton the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Goals from Romaine Mundle and Job Bellingham got Sunderland level with 20 minutes to go but a late brace from Joe Rothwell secured the 4 - 2 win for Southampton.

          QPR, on the other hand, currently sit 20th in the Championship. In 27 games, QPR have ten wins, nine draws and 18 losses which leaves them on 39 points, equal with Birmingham and one point above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, QPR have three wins, one draw and one loss.

          Ilias Chair scored the only goal of the game for QPR in the 41st minute to give them the 1 - 0 win over Bristol City, restricting The Robins to just two shots on target. Despite Tom Eaves opening the scoring for Rotherham in the seventh minute, both Paul Smyth and Chris Willock scored in the second half to give QPR the 2 - 1 comeback win.

          The next time out saw QPR pick up a surprise win over top of the league Leicester. Chair was on the scoresheet again and was joined by Sinclair Armstrong. Ben Nelson did get Leicester in the game with 30 minutes to go, but QPR held on for the 2 - 1 win. Sam Field opened the scoring for QPR but a quick double from Michael Johnston and Grady Diangana gave West Brom the 2 - 1 lead at halftime.
