Tip Reasoning

  • QPR have scored fewer than two goals in seven of their last ten home Championship games.
  • Hull City have conceded fewer than two goals in eight of their last ten away Championship contests.
  • QPR have failed to score in three of their last four games in all competitions.

Tigers’ rediscovered tenacity can frustrate R’s

A defensive emphasis from Hull City in Saturday’s Championship clash could deny QPR the goals they need to reignite a faltering promotion push. The Tigers earned their first clean sheet under Shota Arveladze on Tuesday when they kept Sheffield United out at Bramall Lane.

It was a classic rearguard action from a side that were pinned back for long periods, but a distinct improvement on the lightweight display turned in when the Tigers went down 3-1 to Derby in Arveladze’s first away game as manager. And they could give Mark Warburton’s side another scare if they are as stout again on this trip to west London.

QPR have hit a flat spot in their bid to reach the Premier League. After winning five and drawing two of their seven league games since December 30, the R’s have lost back-to-back matches to make it three defeats in the last four against Championship sides. The downturn appears to have begun in the FA Cup at Peterborough late last month where, despite Warburton fielding a strong line-up, they lost 2-0 to one of the division’s perennial strugglers.

Only the brave back QPR right now

Things got worse when QPR were sunk by Barnsley at the weekend and another defeat followed in midweek when they failed to raise their level at Millwall. It would take a brave soul to back them at any odds on price right now, even if they are up against a Hull side that has lost three of their last five games.

The stats point towards a better play at a similar price – opposing QPR to score multiple goals in the game. The R’s have scored fewer than two goals in seven of their last ten home Championship games while Hull have conceded fewer than two goals in eight of their last ten away Championship contests.

The Tigers have kept clean sheets in half of their last eight away games, including at second-placed Bournemouth, which suggests they could yet blank the fourth-placed side in the division in this game. A goalless game is therefore preferred at the much better odds than either a 1-0 home win or a 1-1 draw as the correct score forecast.
