QPR vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Eight of QPR’s last 11 games in all competitions have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
  • QPR have the joint second best attacking record in the division with 25 goals scored in 14 games, but they have conceded 22 themselves.
  • There have been at least three goals scored in each of Forest’s last four away games, all of which they have won.

Goals on the menu at Loftus Road

QPR host Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Friday night as the hosts face the prospect of a third game in just seven days.

The Rs went down 2-1 at Peterborough in the Championship on Saturday, then lost out to Sunderland in the last 16 of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night after penalties.

Fatigue a potential issue for QPR

Boss Mark Warburton did opt for a few changes against the Black Cats but a few players who started against Posh were in the first XI on Tuesday, with Ilias Chair, Lydon Dykes, Yoann Barbet and Rob Dickie starting both games.

As such fatigue could be a factor for QPR and they have hit a rough patch in form too ahead of the visit of Forest. The Londoners have two defeats in their last four games, with one win and one draw, but most of their issues have come on the road.

The loss to Sunderland, via a penalty shootout after a goalless 90 minutes, ended a run of three straight wins at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Forest saw their own six-game unbeaten streak ended by Fulham at the weekend as they slipped to a 4-0 loss at home. The Reds go into this game seeking a fifth straight win on their travels and they may well take advantage of a QPR side who go into the game on the back of a quick turnaround.

Over 2.5 goals the standout option

In terms of a result this game is hard to call as QPR are in form at home and Forest are flying on their travels. Warburton will be keen to get one over on his former employers after a short and disappointing spell in charge at the City Ground in 2017 and that adds another element of uncertainty, but the goals markets do look promising.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in each of Forest’s last five games and in their last four trips. Eight of QPR’s last 11 games have seen at least three goals scored and they boast one of the best attacks in the division with 25 goals scored, behind only Fulham, but they also have the worst defence in the top half with 22 goals conceded.

As QPR have played an extra midweek game and lost at a poor Peterborough side I’m edging towards a Forest win too, so a 2-1 win for the visitors is my pick in the correct score market.
