Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County: Preview and Predictions

Joey - March 5, 2018

Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Loftus Road Stadium (London).

Derby County’s form has seen a massive slide in the last couple of weeks and the Rams have dropped down to the fifth place as a result. Gary Rowett’s men are winless in five consecutive Championship affairs and a failure here could see them drop out of the tops ix spots in the league ladder as well.

Luckily for the former head coach of Birmingham City, the Rams are about to take on the struggling Queens Park Rangers side who are just a perfect opposition for the visitors to return on the winning ways.

Ian Holloway’s men have had yet another dreadful campaign in the second class and they and they are nowhere near promotional playoffs at this stage of the competition. The Hops will head into this off the back of two tough losses which have seen them concede seven goals to the likes of Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest. Holloway was particularly angry after the 2-5 defeat to the Reds at Loftus Road Stadium.

Such a horrendous defensive form of QPR’s will be the music to the ears of Derby’s talisman Matej Vydra who has bagged 17 goals so far in the season. The Czech striker was not on target in last three appearances for the Rams, though, and the trip to Loftus Road will be an ideal occasion for him to find the wanted shape ahead of the most important part of the season.

Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County: Head-to-head

As many as 10 of 19 H2H matches between these two sides at Loftus Road saw no winner.

QPR have only managed to defeat Derby County three times in front of the home crowd.

The Rams will come into this off the back of three consecutive victories in meetings with the Hoops.

It is interesting to note that none of last seven H2H encounters has seen both teams on target.

Queens Park Rangers vs Derby County: Prediction

We feel that the time has come for the low-scoring trend in H2H games to be terminated since both sides have really lacked meticulousness at the back lately.

Backing three or more goals in the game is our primary option, while braver punters can try with Derby County to win & BTTS at the sky-high 4.75 odds.
