QPR vs Burton Albion
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 28th January 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road, London.
QPR were totally dominated by Fulham in the West London Derby a week ago. But they were effective in their approach and came out with share of the spoils with a 1-1 draw. Ian Holloway is a happy man after guiding the team to a four match unbeaten run, which includes three consecutive wins.
Burton Albion have fallen into the relegation zone after a 1-0 narrow loss away at Cardiff last weekend. They were successful in staying away from the drop zone during the first half of the season. But the recent results are pretty disappointing as they lost in 7 of their last 8 games.
QPR vs Burton Albion: Head-to-head stats
The 1-1 draw at Burton on September 2016 was the first ever Championship meeting between these two sides.
The only other meeting between them was during the 2014 EFL Cup which was hosted and won by Burton on a 1-0 margin.
This will be Burton Albion’s first ever trip to Loftus Road for a competitive fixture.
QPR vs Burton Albion: Prediction
The Rangers are the most improved side in Championship since the beginning of the New Year. They are unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions and will be coming here on high spirits.
Meanwhile, confidence has hit rock bottom at Burton after they suffered a fourth consecutive defeat last weekend. Moreover, Burton are arguably the worst away side in the league as they were only able to win once in 14 trips so far this season.
On current form, QPR must have got what it takes to edge a win here. They are also expected to keep a clean sheet as Burton haven’t scored in their last four games.
