QPR vs Barnsley Predictions

  • QPR have won their last 11 home meetings with Barnsley in the league.
  • The Rs have averaged 1.95 goals per home game this season.
  • QPR have scored 2+ goals in 11 home matches this term.
  • Barnsley have conceded 2+ goals in 10 away trips.

Tykes Test

Barnsley return to action with a huge job on their hands to avoid the drop. They are bottom of the table and seven points shy of safety as they head to QPR this weekend. With a dreadful away record behind them, they could be outclassed here.

This seems to be a chance for the hosts to pick up a vital home win in a campaign which has seen promise without delivering too much substance. Having gone unbeaten across their last six Championship games, we are siding with the R’s in our predictions here.

Tide Against Barnsley

QPR have won their last 11 home league games against Barnsley, a run stretching back to February 2001 with eight different managers registering a win over the Tykes in that time. Their run of 11 consecutive home league wins against Barnsley is the longest in their history against an opponent, three longer than they’ve had against anyone else in the Football League.

No Championship side has a worse shot conversion rate this season than Barnsley (8%), with the Tykes scoring 42 goals from 523 shots. Meanwhile, QPR have scored with 13% of their attempts at home. They’ll be hoping to add to that, especially given their impressive scoring record at this ground so far in the campaign.

Clinical Rs

QPR have scored twice in four of their last five Championship games, while they’ve scored twice or more on 11 occasions at their own ground this season. They’ve hit 1.95 goals per game at home, while they face a Barnsley side who are far too open. The Tykes have shipped 1.6 goals per trip this season, leaking two in each of their last two games in the league.

Barnsley have conceded two goals or more in 10 trips this season, while they let in three goals at home to QPR earlier in the campaign. Following that return we think that QPR can add to their strong scoring record and grab a couple of goals at home to one of the league’s worst defences. With Barnsley conceding exactly two goals on seven occasions away from home and with 67% of their away defeats coming by a single goal, a 2-1 home win is our correct score prediction.
