QPR v Birmingham Match Preview
QPR are without a victory in three and have taken just two points from their last five as their play-off hopes are sliding away. They are down in 14th and are eight points behind Bristol City in sixth place.
At Loftus Road, the London side have won five of their last eight in the league but are without a win in two. Nahki Wells has two in his last four at home, Pawel Wszolek has three in five.
Birmingham put their own five-game winless run behind them last time out with a 2-0 defeat of Nottingham Forest. Che Adams continued his scoring form with a goal in each of his last five league appearances.
Away from St Andrew’s, the Midlands outfit have lost just one of their last six with three of these finishing all-square. Six of their last eight on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net.
The Rs are favourites to win this game and it is hard to argue with the prices on offer which suggests little to choose between the sides but give respect to the team that is hosting the fixture.
An angle into this match is going over 2.5 goals which is the surprise outsider of the two options. Five of the last six at Loftus Road in the league have gone over this amount while six of the last eight the Blues have played on the road have done the same. One player who could contribute to this goal tally is Che Adams who has five in five and should get on the score sheet here.
