Should QPR have any ambitions of staying in the top flight, they have to win matches against teams such as West Brom. The question is, can they?
Harry Redknapp has steered his QPR side off the bottom of the table thanks to a few decent results in recent weeks, however they remain very much within the danger zone and need points desperately ahead of a hectic schedule over the festive period.
The west London side suffered a defeat at the hands of Everton on Monday evening, however Harry Redknapp is remaining upbeat following that result, confident that his Rangers side can win again at Loftus Road.
Queens Park Rangers have been defeated in all of their eight matches on the road this term, however they have been in decent form at Loftus Road, managing some ten points in their last four home games and Redknapp will be hopeful that the Hoops can manage their fifth home win this weekend against a West Brom side who are themselves less than consistent on the road.
Rangers start this match as 6/4 favourites with BetVictor, a draw up for grabs at 12/5 at Coral. We’ll be backing the home side to clinch a maximum points haul this weekend however.
QPR’s great form in front of the Loftus Road faithful will be a confidence booster following some poor away results and they have forced a draw upon reigning champions Manchester City as well as victories over strugglers Burnley, Leicester City and Aston Villa, therefore we believe that they can triumph against the Baggies on Saturday.
Should you be looking for some meatier prices, we can recommend backing QPR to win-to-nil on Saturday, Coral offering 16/5 for such an outcome. One could argue that the hosts possess the Premier League’s worst goals-conceded record, however it must be remembered that all but 10 of these goals have been away from home. QPR have managed to keep a few clean sheets at Loftus Road this term and will be up against a Baggies side which has managed a mere three away goals all season.
