      Tip Reasoning

      Recent meetings between the sides have been few and far between given Fulham were in the higher tier for a long time prior to their relegation from the Premier League which co-incided with QPR’s promotion. Now they are both back in the Championship and both harbour hopes of getting out of it.

      Fulham come into the game on the back of two defeats but had won 3 in a row prior to those matches. QPR were also on a bit of a good run in August but haven’t enjoyed a great September with a home defeat against Nottingham Forest followed by successive score draws against Blackburn and Hull.

      The main problem for both these sides is and has been for some time there inability to defend. QPR had the worst defence in the Premier League last season conceding 73 goals, 10 more than any other side. Fulham meanwhile conceded 83 times in the Championship, an unfortunate feat that only whipping boys Blackpool could match.

      Neither side really appears to have properly addressed the problems over the summer either and that could ultimately cost both clubs a shot at the play-offs. QPR have the 3rd worst defence in the league but do pose a big threat at the other end with Charlie Austin leading the scoring charts.

      Fulham meanwhile have scored and conceded in all of their last 9 Championship games in a run going back to last season and surely against a QPR side who are prone to high-scoring games, there will be plenty more in this one and certainly there is value in backing there to be over 2.5 goals here at 17/20.

      In terms of picking a winner it’s really hard to choose between these two who have been in slightly erratic form, mostly due to their leaky defences. The bookies have Fulham as very slight favourites but up against a dangerous QPR attack, they might need to score 3 or more to win the game, which would be a tall order.

      We should see a full blooded game between two positive sides but it would be no surprise to see it end up level as neither side have been fully convincing so far. With goals highly likely at both ends, a 2-2 draw is possible and might be worth a punt at 12/1.
