Preston vs QPR Prediction
Neil’s men are placed in the playoff mix at present, and with just ten games remaining till the end of the league campaign, players will be eager to ensure their qualification. That they had lost their past two games (owing to a tough schedule against table-toppers), the Lilywhites will be hell-bent on registering a win against this rival.
On top of that, they are at home, and hold a 100% unbeaten record against QPR at this ground in the former two decades. To pile on, the Rangers were winless in ten of their preceding eleven away fixtures, and have failed to score in their prior three road trips.
