Ipswich Town vs QPR Predictions and Match Preview

Ipswich Town vs QPR
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Portman Road (Ipswich).

Ipswich Town takes on Queens Park Rangers hoping to get a positive result and claw their way out of the relegation zone.

Ipswich find themselves in 2nd place from the bottom which is far from their desired position. The team still finds it difficult following Mick McCarthy’s long reign.  The Tractor boys are having troubles at both ends of the pitch and have won just a single victory since the start of the season and it came last round.

Before the break Ipswich battled to eventual 3-2 victory over Swansea at Liberty Stadium. It was a surprise result following both sides form but the team managed to stay strong. A turnaraound in the first half and a winning goal after 84 minutes from Chalobah saw the Tractor boys get their first victory of the season at the expence of Swansea.

QPR are not so far from their opponents in the table. They have 14 points which give them 18th place. Still there is a 5 points gap between them and the relegation zone but the team need to continue earning points. QPR are winning most of their clashes with fellow relegation rivals and this is their main weapon.

QPR managed to get a respectable result last time they played. The R’s took a point against Derby County, a team striving for top 6 finish. Marriott gave the visitors the lead in the first half but Cameron equalized just a few minutes into the second half. This was their 6th draw this season from 12 games.

Ipswich Town vs QPR: Predictions

This should be an evenly matched encounter. Ipswich in theory should have a home advantage but their home form is far from perfect while QPR play almost the same whether at home or away. Considering the amount of draws Ipswich concedes at home we may opt for this option along with both teams to find the net.
