QPR lost at Norwich on Saturday to make it 12 Championship games without a win and the 23rd-placed side have taken just two points from seven games at Loftus Road. Stoke have only lost one of their last six games and have taken seven points from their last four away days.
West Brom should win this but there may be goals at both ends. West Brom beat title-hopefuls Ipswich 2-0 on Saturday and they should be too strong for Cardiff. However, both teams have scored in four of the last six Championship meetings between these sides so Cardiff can grab a consolation.
