This fixture has been postponed to 13th March 2017. Check out the updated preview here.
Aston Villa after a few periods with some poor performances have stabilized looking now like a real promotion contender. The team has plenty of experience and it looks like they are becoming better as the season progresses. The Villans are keeping pressure on 2nd placed Cardiff fighting for the direct promotion places.
Villa are coming into this game after a 2-4 away victory at Sheffield Wednesday. They have returned the favour after their home loss to the same opponent earlier this season. Villa went twice behind in the first half but 3 straight goals in the second forged their victory.
QPR continued to struggle against mid and top table teams. This time they lost at home against troubled Nottingham Forest side which sees them drop a place behind them. Sure QPR won almost all of their relegation battles but they need to improve against the better teams. Nottingham was a perfect opportunity but the team failed big time. The team failed defensively which was the main problem. Conceding 5 goals is always much but against a similar side literally hurts.
Aston Villa vs QPR: Head-to-head
- Aston Villa took first victory in 3 games last round

Aston Villa vs QPR: Predictions
Aston Villa returned to winning ways and will want to continue on Saturday. QPR are struggling on the road and the team barely keeps the results respectable away from Loftus Road against bigger opponents. Last game’s 5 conceded goals raised some question about the team’s defensive line. Aston Villa are more than capable to exploit such weaknesses especially at Villa Park. We should see an entertaining game with most likely victors being Aston Villa.
