The Championship relegation battle remains frenetic with each team now having just five games left to play. Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday are currently in line to join Rotherham in League One next season, but Plymouth Argyle and Queens Park Rangers are among a group of seven teams who can't yet relax as they are no more than five points ahead of the bottom three.

Plymouth are hoping to have turned a corner by sacking head coach Ian Foster but a 1-0 win over Rotherham needs to be backed up by another strong effort against QPR, who have been in much better form than the Pilgrims over the last month. Read on for our Plymouth vs QPR prediction, alongside all the latest team news and match odds for this 19:45 kick-off at Home Park on Tuesday.

Plymouth vs QPR Betting Tips

  • QPR to win @ 6/5
  • QPR to win 2-0 @ 10/1

Team News

Plymouth are still missing Darko Gyabi (groin) but Callum Wright and Dan Scarr returned to the team after the departure of former head coach Foster.

Taylor Richard and Rayan Kolli are out for QPR due to injuries but Albert Adomah, Paul Smyth and Lyndon Dykes are in contention to start if manager Marti Cifuentes makes changes to his line-up.

Match Odds

QPR are favourites to win on the road and priced at 6/5 to win the match, with Plymouth on offer at 2/1 and the draw available at 11/5.

Over 2.5 goals in the game is priced at 10/11 with under 2.5 at 4/5, and it's 8/11 that both teams score in the game with EVS on offer for only one or neither team to find the net.

Dykes, Michael Frey, Ryan Hardie and Morgan Whittaker are co-favourites to score the first goal of the game at 6/1.

QPR to win @ 6/5

QPR have largely had the opportunity to take the task of surviving in the Championship in their own hands and Tuesday's trip to Plymouth is the latest in a series of clashes with their fellow strugglers.

The Hoops have done well enough in those crucial meetings in recent weeks, recording important victories over Rotherham, who are now relegated, and Birmingham to keep them in the bottom three.

The Londoners suffered a setback with Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Sheffield Wednesday, but they get another chance to keep a rival below them in the standings when they travel to Home Park.

Plymouth had been sliding dramatically towards the bottom three but sacking head coach Foster led to them ending a six-game winless run.

A 1-0 victory at Rotherham, which relegated the Millers, by no means guarantees that Plymouth's problems are over, though, and they could struggle against a determined QPR team.

Argyle have lost their last five home games without even scoring a goal while QPR have not lost any of their last four away games, beating Leicester in that time.

QPR to win 2-0 @ 10/1

Scoring a single goal against the worst team in the league does not suggest Plymouth have rediscovered the art of goalscoring just yet and they have scored just three goals in their last seven games.

While the list of teams who have beaten them in their blank run at home contains some decent sides such as Ipswich, Preston, West Brom and Leeds, they have not shown enough against any opponents in recent weeks to have much faith in the Pilgrims.

QPR have been solid enough defensively for a team in danger of relegation and the only sides to have scored more than once against them in their last 13 games were Norwich, West Brom and Middlesbrough until Sheffield Wednesday's 90th-minute second goal on Saturday.

A 2-0 win for the away side looks to have a decent chance at 10/1
