QPR and Preston will go to head to head at The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Wednesday night, with both sides looking for a welcome win to lift them up the Championship table.
Mark Warburton’s side go into the game 15th in the second-tier standings, with six points from five games to their name, after their goalless draw at Bournemouth on Saturday.
Preston meanwhile, go into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat at home to Cardiff City on Sunday, and sit 19th in the table, with four points to their name.
Alex Neil’s side will however, take confidence from the fact that their only win of the season came in this part of the world, with a 4-2 win at Brentford just before the October international break.
As a result, it does look as though this could be a tight encounter between the sides, and it seems as though Prutton is expecting just that.
Writing in his regular Prutton predicts column for Sky Sports ahead of the game, the former Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder has tipped the two sides to play out a 1-1 this evening.
I would not be all that surprised if Prutton’s prediction was to be proven correct here.
QPR and Preston are two solid Championship sides, neither of whom have really set the division on fire during the early part of the campaign.
As a result, I can certainly see the pair cancelling each other out here, particularly given that – with the exception of Preston’s second half at Brentford – neither have been particularly prolific in front of goal this season, meaning a low-scoring draw could well be on the cards.
