QPR vs Portsmouth Match Preview
QPR knocked Portsmouth out of last season’s FA Cup and are fancied to do likewise in the Carabao Cup this term to reach the third round.
The original tie last January was played at Portsmouth but once QPR got their opponents back to Loftus Road for a replay, they prevailed 2-0 with goals from strike duo Nahki Wells and Matt Smith.
Wells, who remains on loan from Burnley, could be in action against Pompey again here and he launched QPR’s fightback on Saturday when they came from a goal down at the break to win 3-1 at home to Wigan in the Championship, lifting themselves into a mid-table position.
That will be satisfactory for manager Mark Warburton just now, but Portsmouth cannot be happy with the start they have made because despite being among the League One promotion favourites, they have won only once and lost both of their away games.
At least in this competition, Kenny Jackett’s side enjoyed an excellent 3-0 home victory over another Championship club, Birmingham, while QPR needed a penalty shootout to get past Bristol City.
Having suffered that FA Cup defeat at this ground in February and been beaten at Shrewsbury and Sunderland already this term, Portsmouth look set for more disappointment – which would turn up the heat a little on manager Jackett.
