A rejuvenated West Brom eye another three points when they take the trip to London to face a struggling QPR.
The Rangers were in FA action this weekend and further misery is piled up on with the 0-1 defeat to Watford. Steve McLaren’s men are now on three consecutive defeats in all competitions.
Meantime, West Brom produced a brilliant display at Villa Park to bag a 2-0 win over Aston Villa to boost their promotion chances. Darren Moore’s men remain at 4th in the league table, with automatic promotion zone four points away.
Besides, West Brom are performing exceptionally well in away games lately. They are coming to Loftus Road on the back of a four match unbeaten in matches outside home turf.
Meantime, there is little to write about Ranger’s home form. They lost 3 of the last 4 played at their own backyard and are poised for a stern test this Tuesday.

QPR vs West Brom Prediction
Problems are plenty for Steve McLaren ahead of this fixture as his team is on a three match losing streak and conceded 4 goals each in the league defeats at the Loftus Road. West Brom are the best away side in the league and bagged 3 wins in the last 4 outings and thus the visitors qualify are favourites to win this contest.
Even though West Brom have kept 4 back-to-back clean sheets on the road, we must understand that QPR have a capable attacking unit. Their 5 most recent head-to-head games at the Loftus Road saw both teams scoring. Therefore we have good reasons to expect a high scoring affair when these two meet again this midweek.
