Venue: Loftus Road Stadium.

Queens Park Rangers have been enjoying a solid shape lately as the weekend’s victory over Cardiff City was the third in last four matches for Ian Holloway and his men.

The Hoops will have a nice chance to keep the good form going on Tuesday evening when they host out-of-form Barnsley at Loftus Road Stadium.

Queens Park Rangers

The winter’s acquisition from Fulham, Matt Smith, is proving to be a quality signing for Ian Holloway as the youngster netted two goals in six appearances for the Hoops.

The midfielder Idrissa Sylla has also been in good touch lately as he is the team’s leading scorer with seven goals so far in the competition.

The team showed a decent display in a 2-1 victory over in-form Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.


Barnsley have had a pretty rough schedule facing three promotional candidates in last three Championship rounds.

You should thus not be surprised to see them getting no more than a single point from last three fixtures.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side has generally had a pleasant campaign since they achieved their main goal of avoiding the relegation battle.

QPR vs Barnsley: Head to head

QPR have been much more successful in head to head clashes winning 15 out of 25 encounters with the Tykes who have no more than six wins in total.

However, Barnsley managed to end the negative run in matches with the Hoops in the first match of this term of Championship when they took a 3-2 win at their Oakwell Stadium.

QPR vs Barnsley: Prediction

QPR are 11/10 to maintain the fine form and pick up yet another victory. The visitors are, however, everything but a naive side in spite of the poor shape they showed lately.

We can easily see both teams on the scoresheet and the 8/11 odds on the BTTS pick certainly represent the value.
