Match preview

Two sides locked on points in the Championship table are set to go head-to-head at Loftus Road this Saturday, March 18th.

The matchup in question will see Queens Park Rangers act as hosts, in a meeting with Birmingham City.

Beginning with the former, QPR, after finally finding some reprieve by way of a first win in 14 last weekend, were subsequently brought back down to earth with a thud on Tuesday night.

This came as a trip to Bloomfield Road to face a Blackpool outfit sitting inside the bottom three saw the Hoops put to the sword in nothing short of alarming fashion, by six goals to one.

Gareth Ainsworth’s troops, all told, have therefore been condemned to defeat in no fewer than six of their last seven.

Such woes have culminated in QPR, at one point in the campaign in the thick of the promotion playoff battle, tumbling to the depths of 19th in the Championship table.

Now sitting just seven points clear of the bottom three, it is therefore safe to say that Saturday’s hosts will have their sights set firmly on a swift return to winning ways.

In truth, though, their upcoming opponents will head into the action at Loftus Road equally as desperate for a positive result.

This comes with Birmingham City only sitting clear of QPR in the standings owing to goal difference.

Not only that, but, also like the Hoops, Birmingham were dealt a blow in midweek, in following up an important victory with an altogether disappointing defeat.

After making short work of fellow relegation candidates Rotherham United at St. Andrew’s, John Eustace’s men were subsequently put to the sword by a struggling Watford outfit on Tuesday night.

All told, this means that five of the Blues’ last seven have seen them come away from proceedings with nothing to show for their efforts.

Upon examination of the odds, we at 101 are therefore backing an eventual stalemate to play out between QPR and Birmingham later today.

The latter, though, should be viewed as narrow favourites.
