QPR vs Sheffield Wednesday
English League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 23rd October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London)
Sheffield Wednesday took a heavy blow last round and will be looking to put things right in the midweek fixtures against Queens Park Rangers.
QPR continues their “tradition” to win against teams lower or equal in the table. The R’s look to be specialists at this and that’s the main reason they keep themselves up in recent seasons. They have a 7 points cushion over the relegation zone and will go into this game without much pressure.
Saturday saw QPR clinch a decisive victory at Ipswich. The team was significantly th sharper side proving once again that they are kings in such games. An own goal and a penalty in the first half ensured their 0-2 victory in a tough visit.
Wednesday slowly improves since last season but a lot more work has to be done. The team currently sits on 11th place but just 2 points away from a top 6 position. The Owls definitely have the ambition to move to the playoff zone but they need to start edging their games. 4 draws and 4 losses have hurt them and the team needs to respond.
Last round they went up against the current league leaders Middlesbrough hoping to get something from the game and reach top 6. It wasn’t meant to be as the visitors hit them hard in the early minutes of the second half and Wednesday just could not recover fully. They scored a screamer through Adam Reach and had some more chances at goal but in the end settled for a home defeat.
