QPR vs Sheffield United
English League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 31st October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London).
QPR just ended their 7 match win-less run in the Championship with a 2-1 win against title hopefuls Wolves. They drew 5 and lost during the period, but the home form has always been good considering the limited resources at their disposal.
The Rangers were beaten just once at home this season while they won 4 and drew 2. Coming on the back of a win after a barren run, they will be highly motivated to see off an adventurous team like Sheffield.
Meantime, Sheffield United are coming on the back of a vital 2-1 win against fellow promotion candidates Leeds United. The result momentarily send them to top of the table, but the likes of Wolves and Cardiff are inside a 2-point distance.
Sheffield have not drawn a single Championship match this season. Their 14 games saw 10 wins and 4 losses. And 3 of those 4 defeats have come during their 7 away games. So QPR should have some hope of snatching a positive result.
QPR vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head
The teams share 2 wins and a draw from their last five meetings in all competitions.
Sheffield do have a good record in away fixtures against QPR, 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses from 11 matches.
QPR vs Sheffield United: Prediction
This is expected to a fairly open game despite the teams staying at the opposite halves of the table. QPR are a tough side to beat at home, while Sheffield are going out for every game with the single intention of winning.
But, I see the visitors have a slight edge here of having shrugged off relegation threat so early in the season. A place in the promotion zone will be a bonus for the Blades if they manage to keep performing at this level.
