The Rangers recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Preston. The hosts had drawn first blood with an early goals, and seemed set to post the three points on the board.

However, the guests slotted in three goals in a row after the 60th minute, and that too after one of their players were sent off.

Most importantly, the Rangers have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this venue since 2001, and have scored two or more goals in all but two of the total h2h meetings at this ground since 1997.

Considering all these findings, it’s concluded that QPR are on course to deliver a huge win this weekend.
