Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of form are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Loftus Road on Saturday, February 25th.

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

First, let’s take a look at the recent endeavours of the former.

For those not aware, QPR currently stand as one of the most out-of-form clubs across the entirety of the English football pyramid.

The capital outfit, remarkably, have picked up just a solitary win from their last 18 attempts across all competitions, dating back to October of last year.

This stretch includes defeats in four of the club’s last five, most recently at the hands of rampant Middlesbrough last weekend.

It therefore came as little surprise when the powers that be in Shepherd’s Bush, earlier this week, came to the decision to part ways with head coach Neil Critchley.

Now sitting in a lowly 18th in the Championship table, just eight points clear of the bottom three, it is safe to say that incoming boss Graeme Ainsworth has a job on his hands in steadying the ship at QPR.

Upcoming opponents Blackburn Rovers, as a result, will no doubt be licking their lips at the prospect of taking on the faltering Hoops this weekend.

In contrast to their hosts-to-be, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men having enjoyed an altogether fruitful time of things over the course of the last couple of weeks.

Though goals have at times proven tough to come by, Blackburn, all told, have now fallen to defeat in just one of their last 11 fixtures across all competitions dating back to the turn of the year.

Even more significantly, each of Rovers’ last two outings have culminated in victory, to go along with a pair of clean sheets.

First, Daniel Ayala’s last-gasp finish proved enough to put Swansea City to the sword at Ewood Park.

And this was followed in turn by a similar result against relegation-battling Blackpool, on this occasion courtesy of Tyrhys Dolan.

Such solid form has culminated in Blackburn climbing back into the promotion playoff picture, sitting 4th, five points back of rampant Middlesbrough.

We at 101 are therefore backing Tomasson and co. to stave off the new manager bounce at Loftus Road, on their way to what will likely prove a narrow victory over Queens Park Rangers.
