QPR vs Blackburn: Preview and Prediction

QPR vs Blackburn
FA Cup – Third Round.
Date: Saturday, 7th January 2017,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK.
Venue: Loftus Road, London.

Ian Holloway has something to cheer for after QPR managed to win two games in a row. The Rangers suffered six consecutive defeats, but they have turned this around at the eve of New Year with wins against Wolves and Ipswich. There was a similar pattern to those results too, as both came by 2-1 score-line with the winners scored in the final minutes. QPR have finally managed to get out of the relegation zone of Championship with those wins, while their FA cup opponent Blackburn are still in the danger zone.

Blackburn Rovers are coming on the back of a priceless 1-0 win against Newcastle United. It was a lucky win as the Magpies had plenty of chances to kill the match before Charlie Mulgrew scored the vital goal for the Rovers in the 74th minute. They held another promotion contender Huddersfield Town to a 1-1 draw the previous week. And things are looking slightly better for the team occupying the final spot of relegation in the Championship table.

Queen Park Rangers were knocked out in the third round of the FA Cup in the previous three editions. Whereas Blackburn had made deep runs into later stages of the competition in the past two editions. The Rovers reached the quarter finals on 2014-15 and made it to the round of 16 last season.

QPR vs Blackburn: Prediction

These teams were part of two high intensity clashes on the New Year’s Eve. And both looked in good shape, but fatigue could come into play here. Also, they are at the bottom half of their league table with considerable threat of relegation. So the managers from each side could rest their key players here.

The recent results indicates, there is a good chance for this match to end in a draw. Especially the clashes between the two at the Loftus Road has a higher percentage of seeing them cancel each other. We believe this will be the case here at the end of 90 minutes.
