Queens Park Rangers will be going into their clash against third-bottom Middlesbrough looking to turn their fortunes around after back-to-back league defeats.
A 2-0 loss to Leeds last Saturday was a reality check for the R’s, who had shown to be unlikely play-off contenders under Mark Warburton so far this season.
QPR’s two previous results have dropped the West Londoners down to 9th in the Championship standings, two points behind 6th placed Bristol City.
That means a win could take them back into the play-off places, depending on results elsewhere.
Their opponents on the other hand have struggled under new manager Jonathan Woodgate this season and currently occupy the final relegation spot in 22nd position.
Who will win on Saturday at Loftus Road?
Boro’s winless run stretches back to 14 September, a 1-0 win over Reading at The Riverside Stadium.
Since then, the Teesside club have lost five and drawn three, and QPR will want to capitalise on the visitors’ poor form at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium tomorrow.
Speaking to Sky Sports, EFL pundit David Prutton has offered his prediction ahead of the big game on Saturday, and it is not good news for Middlesbrough.
Prutton has said that the R’s will come out on top as 2-1 winners,
QPR have been impressive going forward this season, scoring 24 goals in their fifteen matches, and it will be their quality in the final third that will get them over the line against Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.
It could just be the R’s chance to get their first clean sheet of the campaign, as their opponents have scored the fewest goals in the Championship, with just 11 from their fifteen games.
