QPR vs Derby Predictions and Match Preview

Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London)

Frank Lampard’s Derby County travels to London facing QPR. It won’t be an easy game for both sides as each team has its values.

QPR are playing as they did last season. The R’s are losing to the better sides than winning against relegation rivals. Their most recent victories came against Millwall, Bolton and Reading which are all rivals for place in this league. This was the main feature of this team last season and now looks to be relevant again.

We’ve mention the victory over Reading already. It came on Tuesday night with the minimal score of 0-1 at Madejski Stadium. A good solid performance from QPR. They let Reading control the game but eventually ended up sharper hitting more shots on target and creating some good chances.

Derby County are having many slip ups this season but still the side roams very close to the playoffs. They are not in top 6 just on goal difference and as we know in the EFL Championship things may change rather quickly. The one thing that The Rams need the most is consistency.

Last round Lampard and his men suffered a defeat at the hands of Bolton. These are the games which the team should be playing more consistently in. Derby had the most possession tried to score on many occasions but the team lacked sharpness up front. With so many chances Derby’s offensive line managed to hit the target only once for 90 minutes.

QPR vs Derby: Predictions

QPR are hardly a match for most of the top table teams. Derby will be looking to get into the top 6 with a victory and the team will be determined. The game traditionally has less goals and with both teams forms this may be a good option to call.
