QPR vs Derby County
England League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 14th December, 2016.

QPR defeated their third consecutive league defeat as a relegation threatened Rotherham edge a narrow 1-0 win on Saturday. The poor run of results eventually dropped them to 18th in the league table, with the drop zone at a 3 point distance. Coming back to the Loftus Road, the Rangers will be optimistic for a big turnaround in fortunes.

Derby County on the other hand are on an emphatic run. They defeated Nottingham Forrest 3-0 to pick up their 6th straight win in the league. The Rams were 21st in the table before the first win of the series started. They have covered some considerable ground with those 18 points and are currently 5th in the league.

QPR are unbeaten in the last four Championship fixtures at home against Derby. However, the Rams were victorious in the 3 of the previous four visits to the Loftus Road.

QPR vs Derby County: Prediction

It is clearly evident from the head-to-head stats that, this will be a tricky affair for Derby despite their excellent form in recent outings. QPR are in definite trouble, but they still have the capability to hold visiting sides to draws. We believe Derby’s primary mission here will be to prevent Derby from scoring inside the first 45 minutes and take the attack towards the final quarter of the match. We like to go with the home advantage here as mid-week games often present an opportunity for underdogs to upset the odds.
