Tip Reasoning

Are Ipswich on their way back after back to back results? They picked up a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United at the weekend, a side in play-off contention. However, will they secure a result in this week’s trip to QPR? The Tractor Boys are bound for London after taking four points from their last two matches, a run which has restored hope of survival.

QPR have had a strong couple of results themselves, including a record-breaking victory. Saturday saw them claim a first-ever win at Nottingham Forest, following 34 unsuccessful attempts. It was the longest run in the history of the EFL, which was brought to an end with that 1-0 win. The Rs had seen off Middlesbrough in their previous clash, putting them just four points shy of a spot in the top-six. Will Steve McClaren’s side kick on in their promotion push with another three points?

QPR are the favourites here, with Ipswich coming into this clash bottom of the table. The visitors are four points shy of safety, with Paul Lambert trying to bring them out of the bottom three. However, the Tractor Boys have won just two matches in the first half of the campaign. That’s put them in danger of dropping into League One, but Lambert is trying to perform a great escape.

The Rs are aiming to build on their 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in their last home game. They’ve got some fine form at home of late, having picked up six home wins to date. They’ve won four of their last five matches at Loftus Road in the league, with that form setting them out as favourites for this clash. It’s helped to lift them into the race for the top six, and their promotion hopes will require three points against the league’s bottom side.

QPR have won four of their last five meetings with Ipswich, while they’ve won the last five clashes at Loftus Road. That should help the hosts build on their recent strong home form. Meanwhile, the Tractor Boys have lost four of their last five away trips, while they’ve lost 73% of their away matches this season. As a result, we’re going for a home win on Boxing Day, with the Loftus Road side set to build on their good results at this ground. On top of that, we’re tipping a 2-0 defeat for the visitors – who have failed to score in 64% of their trips.
