Match preview

A Queens Park Rangers outfit with sights set on a return to the top flight of English football will make the trip to St. Andrew’s on Friday evening hoping to keep alive a fine recent stretch of form.

Hosts Birmingham, though, will prove no soft touch amid their own efforts to return to winning ways.

QPR, of course, have proven one of the Championship’s standout performers for some time now. Amid the recent struggles of the likes of Sheffield United and Norwich City, the capital outfit have taken full advantage, now trailing only Vincent Kompany’s Burnley at the division’s summit.

All told, since the middle of September, QPR have slipped to defeat on just a solitary occasion, racking up six wins from eight along the way.

The latest of these came last weekend, when goals on the part of Sam Field and Leon Balogun proved enough to put Wigan Athletic to the sword by two goals to one.

Making such endeavours over recent weeks all the more impressive, meanwhile, is that they have come in the absence of top scorer Chris Willock.

After returning to training this week, though, hitman Willock could yet mark his competitive comeback on Friday, aiming to add to his haul of six goals in nine across the season to date.

Safe to say, then, that Birmingham will have their work cut out for them this weekend.

The Blues, save for a slip-up last time out, have looked much improved of late.

In fact, prior to a hard-fought defeat at the hands of promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers, John Eustace’s troops, like their upcoming opponents, had tasted defeat just once in eight fixtures.

Birmingham, in turn, climbed clear of the relegation places, and towards the safety of mid-table.

In the knowledge that a single round of unfavourable results could plunge the club back into legitimate danger, though, Friday’s hosts will be desperate to avoid a 2nd successive loss next time out.

We at 101, as a result, envision an altogether hard-fought affair playing out over the course of the 90 minutes in the opening fixture of the Championship weekend.

Come the final whistle, though, QPR will likely have just too much for their stubborn hosts at St. Andrew’s.
