QPR vs Wolves
England League Championship
Date: Thursday, 1st December, 2016.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Loftus Road, London.
The new QPR managed Ian Holloway had mixed results in the opening two weeks since taking over from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on November 2016. It was an encouraging start for the fans when their team edged a 2-1 home win against Norwich. However, they were brought back to losing ways after a terrible 3-0 defeat away at Ipswich last week. The Rangers are 15th in the league table with 23 points, just 5 short of the relegation zone.
Wolverhampton Wolves on the other hand are fast approaching the danger zone after suffering yet another defeat on matchday 18. They have 18 points, same as Cardiff and Wigan inside the relegation zone. The only team in the league with less points than them is a Rotherham (7).
Just like QPR, Wolves also had a managerial change as Walter Zenga was sacked on 25th October 2016. The results didn’t change since Paul Lambert took over on a permanent basis on November. The Wolves are currently win-less in their last 9 matches with 6 losses and 3 draws.
