Sky Sports EFL pundit David Prutton has predicted Bristol City will get back to winning ways when they face QPR at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this evening.
The Robins were off their game on Saturday as they slumped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of fellow play-off hopefuls Reading.
QPR also suffered defeat over the weekend but, despite a 2-1 loss to local rivals Brentford, will likely head into the game feeling more positive having looked the better side for parts of the match.
City took all three points from a cagey 1-0 victory in their last league visit to the KPF and, in his predictions for Sky Sports, Prutton has forecasted they’ll win 2-1 this time around.
The Robins are still without a string of players due to injury, including summer signings Alfie Mawson, Joe Williams, and Steven Sessegnon, but captain Tomas Kalas could be back.
Rob Dickie’s return was a huge boost for the R’s against Brentford on Friday but Todd Kane is suspended and four other players are questionable, though there is hope Geoff Cameron will be available.
Paulo Sousa? Warnock? Who was the QPR manager when each of these 15 R’s moments happened?
Mark Warburton’s men have been gaining in confidence in recent weeks and will likely feel that a loss wasn’t a fair result against the Bees on Friday.
Even so, this game looks likely to be decided by which City side turn up.
If it’s a repeat of the sort of display we saw from them against Reading, then the R’s could certainly turn them over but if they’re back to their best it’s difficult to see past a win for Dean Holden’s side.
