Queens Park Rangers vs Stoke Match Preview
A 3-0 loss to Brentford last weekend made it eight defeats from nine for QPR and a once promising season has dwindled out. They should be safe from relegation on 42 points but would like a few more wins to be certain.
At Loftus Road, the Rs have won just one of their previous five though this did come against Leeds. Luke Freeman has netted in each of his last two appearances in front of his own fans in the league.
Stoke are unbeaten in their last four and got their first win of this sequence with a 2-0 defeat of Nottingham Forest last weekend. They are into 16th and like QPR will want a few more points on the board just to be certain.
Away from the BET365 Stadium, the Potters are nine without a victory though six of these have finished all-square. Just two of their previous six on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net.
Bookmakers make QPR marginal favourites but it is clear they rate Stoke as the stronger team as they are only marginal outsiders on the road. I could not be taking the visitors to win this given their poor road record so would look elsewhere for the value.
Three of the last four at Loftus Road have gone over 2.5 goals and while the Potters have not been involved in many goal feasts themselves they are starting to show signs of life in front of goal and with no real pressure on either side this could be an open affair.
Luke Freeman has two in his last two appearances at Lotus Road and he looks generously priced to net at any time here.
