Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday do battle in an all-EFL Championship Emirates FA Cup match on Friday night. This third round tie will take place at QPR’s Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, which could give Mark Warburton’s men the slight edge. However, Garry Monk’s Wednesday will be looking to put their poor league form to bed and progress to round five. This promises to be an intriguing FA Cup tie in the capital.

Queens Park Rangers Preview – Can Rangers make it four wins from five league and cup matches?

Queens Park Rangers are currently in 14th place in the Championship. Mark Warburton has had a mixed bag of results since taking over at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Rangers have won 11, lost 12 and drawn five of 28 league matches, picking up 38 points along the way.

QPR have been in good shape since the turn of the year, winning three of their last four league and cup games. Last weekend, the London side beat Leeds United 1-0 at home in Championship action.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1511 GMT, Thursday 23 January)

In the third round of the FA Cup, QPR thumped fellow Championship side Swansea City 5-1 at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. The R’s ran riot, with Jordan Hugill helping himself to a brace. A few days before that, QPR walloped Cardiff City 6-1 in league action on New Year’s Day.

QPR are a capable outfit these days, and the fans would no doubt enjoy a good run in the FA Cup this season. Can Rangers book their place in round five with a home win on Friday night.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Will the Owls leave London with a win and a place in round five?

Like QPR, Sheffield Wednesday also have aspirations of reaching the Premier League. At the time of writing, Garry Monk’s men are in tenth spot in the Championship table, just four points away from the top six. Overall, the Owls have won 12, drawn six and lost ten of their 28 league matches.

Wednesday have had a little slump in form of late, losing four of their last five in the Championship. Last weekend, the Owls fell to an embarrassing 5-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

In the previous round of the FA Cup, though, Monk’s troops did beat Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium. Adam Reach’s second-half goal was enough to give Wednesday an impressive 1-0 win on the coast.

Sheffield Wednesday head to west London as the slight second favourites, but can they follow up that excellent win at the Amex with another FA Cup victory on the road this Friday?


Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Advice

When Sheffield Wednesday welcomed Queens Park Rangers to Hillsborough back in August, QPR edged a tight and tense affair in Sheffield. On paper, these two sides seem pretty evenly matched, so expect another close encounter between the two on Friday.


Key Facts – Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tip

  • In August, QPR won 2-1 at Hillsborough in Championship action
  • Rangers have won three of their last four in league and cup, scoring 13 times along the way
  • Wednesday have lost four of their last six in all competitions


As I mentioned, QPR have won the last two meetings 2-1. With this one set to be tight, it could be worth backing the R’s to secure a third consecutive 2-1 victory over Wednesday. The 2-1 home win is nicely priced at 9/1.

Nahki Wells has been in sensational form lately. The 29-year-old, who netted a hat-trick against Cardiff on New Year’s Day, has scored five goals in his last three outings. Put some money on Wells to score the opening goal on Friday night at 5/1.
