Queens Park Rangers News and Form – Can QPR avoid a third defeat on the spin?

The pressure is starting to mount on Mark Warburton, as Queens Park Rangers have taken just one point from their last four. Since winning at Birmingham City, Rangers have lost to Barnsley, Reading and Hull and have drawn with Charlton Athletic.

Last time out, the London side were narrowly beaten at home by Hull. An Ilias Chair goal gave QPR a 20th-minute lead, but George Honeyman levelled things up just 12 minutes later. The Hoops then suffered a sucker punch at the end, with Jackson Irvine netting an 89th-minute winner to give the Tigers maximum points in west London.

Cardiff City News and Form – Bluebirds to make it back-to-back away wins?

Neil Harris has made a solid start to life in South Wales. Under his management, Cardiff City have been beaten just once, winning four and drawing four of the other eight. The Bluebirds are now just two points off the play-off places in tenth.

After three consecutive draws, Cardiff secured a much-needed win at Sheffield Wednesday last Sunday. The Welsh side were quick out of the blocks at Hillsborough, racing into a 2-0 lead with just eight minutes on the clock. City survived a few scares to leave Sheffield with an invaluable three points.

Cardiff are very hard to beat under Harris, and they could be the dark horses in the battle for promotion. Can the Bluebirds make it back-to-back away victories with three points in the English capital on New Year’s Day?

Queens Park Rangers vs Cardiff City Predictions

Cardiff City win: Without being at their best, Cardiff eased to a win when the pair squared off in the Welsh capital on October 2nd. The Bluebirds, who were then managed by Neil Warnock, were 2-0 up at half time, but QPR were the better team in the first period. Cardiff put the game beyond Rangers when Paterson made it three in the 72nd minute.

After drawing three on the spin, last Sunday’s 2-1 victory at Hillsborough was just what the doctor ordered. Harris’ boys are available at the very tempting price of 10/1 to win 2-1 again on Wednesday.

Robert Glatzel has had a frustrating time in Wales since join from German side Heidenheim in the summer. However, the striker has netted in each of Cardiff’s last two away matches. You can get Glatzel at 15/8 to score anytime in this one.
