Holding an impressive personal record against the Welsh club, back QPR's Matt Phillips to net anytime against Cardiff City on home soil.

The Championship continues this weekend as QPR welcome Welsh outfit Cardiff City to Loftus Road, with both second tier teams going in search of their first league victory of the new season.

Chris Ramsey’s Hoops were toppled 2-0 on their travels to Charlton Athletic, while Russell Slade’s Bluebirds could only manage a draw with Fulham at the Cardiff City Stadium. The hosts will be confident of securing three points in the next clash against their Welsh opponents, though.

QPR winger Matt Phillips is set to star for the Londoners, having struck against Cardiff in two of his four career appearances against the Welsh club, and he is a best-price 9/2 with 888.com to net anytime again.

The two-cap Scotland international wideman was present during the previous league defeat to Charlton on home soil, but played a key role in the 3-0 Capital One Cup triumph over Yeovil Town.

Phillips will hope to continue his impressive record over Cardiff on home turf and help his side kick on for the Championship campaign, having suffered relegation from the Premier League last term.

Ramsey’s hosts are a top-price 6/5 with Betfred to earn their first three points of the campaign at the second time of asking, with Phillips looking to bag his maiden goal of new term and follow on from his three top-flight goals last season.

In the club’s unsuccessful run-in last term, Philips still shone for his side, clinically striking in a clash with Newcastle United last May, helping to earn a 2-1 victory and three points before returning to the Championship.

Hoping to add to his two goals in four outings against Cardiff in his next league appearance, former Blackpool attacker Phillips is a best-priced 21/2 with 888.com to open proceedings, as QPR look to start a winning streak for a hopeful season ahead.

Betting tip: Matt Phillips to score anytime @ 9/2 with 888.com.
