Queens Park Rangers play host to Huddersfield Town on Sunday afternoon (13:30) in what can only be described as a relegation six-pointer.

The hosts sit 22nd in the Championship table, with the opposition just one place and three points above them.

QPR vs Huddersfield Prediction

  • Draw @ 11/5
  • Both teams to score @ EVS

Team News

After their victory over Millwall last time out, it seems likely that Marti Cifuentes will name a similar starting XI on Sunday, although youngster Rayan Kolli remains out through injury.

Meanwhile, Delano Burgzorg, Kian Harratt, Jaheim Headley, Christopher Maxwell, Matty Pearson, Josh Ruffels and Danny Ward all remain on the treatment table for Huddersfield, and Yuta Nakayama is away with Japan at the Asian Cup.

Match Odds

QPR are 21/20 to claim an important three points, while the draw is 11/5 and Huddersfield are 11/4.

Under 2.5 goals can be backed at 4/7 and Lyndon Dykes is favourite to score anytime at 11/5.

Draw @ 11/5

Queens Park Rangers’ winless run in all competitions, which stretched back over eight games, was finally ended last weekend when Cifuentes’ side beat Millwall at Loftus Road.

Meanwhile, the Terriers are without a win in their last four and should they lose this encounter, they will trade places with QPR and find themselves occupying the final place in the drop zone.

Neither side will want to lose this game, and given the winless runs that both sides have been on recently, I can see a low-scoring draw playing out.

Draw at 11-5

Both teams to score @ EVS

Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings between these two sides, and I can see that trend continuing here.

Huddersfield haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their previous five games, while QPR have failed to keep their opponents out in four of their previous five, excluding their 2-0 win over Millwall last time out.

With this being the most important game of the season for both teams, I'm expecting nerves to play a part and neither side are watertight at the back.
