      Tip Reasoning

      The two sides had very contrasting transfer windows and the events of the last few weeks off the pitch could have an impact on this game and may go a long way to determining what kind of season each club will have.

      QPR against all the odds managed to hold on to Charlie Austin, who has scored 4 goals in 5 Championship matches already this season. What’s more the player has handled a summer of constant speculation in a dignified way and has committed himself fully to the Rangers cause after a transfer failed to materialise, unlike many players in the same position.

      He could easily score 30 goals in this league and he is perhaps the only forward in the league capable of that. With Matty Phillips also staying put and Tjaronn Chery looking like an excellent signing, QPR are going to be very dangerous in an attacking sense and now the transfer window has shut, there is a real air of optimism all of a sudden at Loftus Road and that could help spur QPR on to a comfortable win here.

      That ‘feel good factor’ is something that is certainly lacking in the East Midlands. By contrast Forest have made an unconvincing start and lost their best player in the closing days of the transfer window with Michail Antonio joining West Ham. Just 12 months ago there was such optimism at the City Ground with the club riding high under newly appointed Stewart Pearce but that quickly went sour and already the good start Dougie Freedman made is starting look like yet another false dawn for one of the grandest names in English football.

      With the squad depleted it’s just very hard to see them getting anything from a tough trip to West London on Saturday and the rebuilding process may just have to get underway when more winnable games come knocking, which they will.

      Certainly backing QPR to win at 10/11 looks like a cracking bet and might be worth an inclusion in any Saturday accumulators. Momentum and confidence can both be huge factors in football matches and you have to say both are with QPR right now, not to mention the fact that they have more quality than their opponents, whose only win this term was a narrow one at home to bottom club Rotherham.

      QPR are still a bit shaky at the back though and have conceded twice in both of their home games so far. Therefore you certainly couldn’t rule out a Forest goal but if QPR go ahead, heads may drop in the Nottingham Forest ranks and the hosts might just rack up a few goals. Therefore if you’re looking for a correct score bet with big potential returns, consider backing the home side to win 4-1 at huge odds of 33/1.
