Preston Hoping to Bounce Back

After three straight losses, Preston are searching for a return to form when they clash with QPR this weekend. While the visitors have had their problems, they should be hopeful as they take on a QPR side who have failed to win across their last seven matches.

Can Preston build on a good record against the Rs by securing a victory in this trip? With mixed form on their travels this season, manager Alex Neil will be hoping to inspire his side to a result here.

QPR’s Slump

Last season was a stretch of ups and downs for QPR, who went back and forth between long runs of good and bad form. They were a very streaky side, while that has carried over to Mark Warburton’s reign this term. The hosts come into this one on one of their poor spells, which could cost them on Saturday.

A major problem for the hosts is their recent poor form in front of goal. They kicked off with their attacking approach paying off, but things are looking bleak after five goals in six games. To make things worse, their problems at the back continue. QPR haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 23 league games – they last had a longer run without a shutout in a club-record run of 40 between May 1968 and April 1969.

Unspectacular Preston

While Preston have pulled off some impressive results this season, they’ve all come at home. Their away results haven’t been great, but the visitors have been solid at the back on their travels to make up for a lack of goals. They conceded as many goals in their last away league game (0-4 vs Hull) as they had in their previous six on the road in the Championship.

That’s seen 78% of their away trips finish with under 2.5 goals scored. The visitors don’t create or convert all that many chances on the road, but they are solid on their travels. That points to them keeping things tight here, so we expect this one to buck the trend in terms of QPR games, with Preston frustrating the hosts and producing a low scoring affair. Under 2.5 goals is our pick for this one.

Of course, the visitors should benefit from their impressive record against the Rs. QPR have lost their last six league matches against Preston, a run stretching back to August 2016. That streak includes victories in their last three away league visits to QPR. Meanwhile, as Preston manager, Alex Neil has won more Championship games against QPR than any other side (four). Given that form and considering QPR’s defensive troubles, we’re going with a 1-0 away win here.
