It’s been far from a good start to the season for Swansea with just one win in seven games and they currently sit just above the relegation zone. That will concern fans after a disappointing season last year and seemingly no improvement thus far. The lack of transfer activity will also be a disappointment, with just £2 million spent during the window.
Another cause for concern is the number of goals they have shipped this season with their total of eleven being the second highest in the division. Russell Martin will also be disappointed with the last-minute equaliser they conceded against Stoke midweek after a good display away from home. They do enter this clash as 13/10 favourites, but it will be another tough test.
Rangers have turned around their poor start to the campaign with two impressive wins on the bounce over Watford and Hull respectively. The London club were particularly impressive last time out against the Tigers, going three goals up before the half-time mark. That means they have now scored twelve goals so far this season, which is the third highest in the division.
However, Mark Warburton will be slightly concerned by the number of goals they are conceding this campaign with his side failing to keep a clean sheet so far this season. The home win over Hull was slightly marred by the visitors grabbing a consolation goal in the last minutes of the game. Despite the good form, QPR go into this one as slight outsiders at 2/1, but it is predicted to be a tight game.
