QPR return to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium tomorrow to face a Barnsley side who tasted defeat for the first time this season during the week.
The R’s remain unbeaten after three Championship games, picking up wins away against Hull City and Middlesbrough after an opening day draw with Millwall.
For The Tykes, it was also a draw to commence the season against Cardiff City, before beating Coventry City 1-0.
But, they were unable to follow that victory up at Oakwell on Tuesday, as Amari’i Bell’s strike in the fourth minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.
It was a victory for The Tykes when the pair met at The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium last year, with Barnsley winning 3-1, in a season where they managed to secure a play-off spot.
Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has predicted that the hosts will run out 2-0 winners on Saturday.
QPR have recruited extremely well this summer and they are fancied by a lot to do very well this year. They showed great determination to come out as winners against Middlesbrough during the week, playing 40 minutes with 10 men.
However, Barnsley will always pose a strong test. They have lost the likes of Alex Mowatt and Daryl Dike, but they still have a good squad at Championship level.
The R’s will have promotion ambitions and will be viewing this as a winnable game in their pursuit of a top-six finish.
However, it will be no surprise to see the game a little closer than Prutton’s 2-0 prediction, but a narrow QPR win is most probable.
