      QPR salvaged a draw from their Fourth Round tie at Fratton Park, a result which helped them set up Tuesday’s clash at Loftus Road. The hosts are aiming to end their poor form in this competition, as they take on League One opposition. The visitors come into this one after slipping down the table, but they’ll be aiming to continue their fine run in the cup by causing an upset against a struggling QPR side?

      Things are going downhill for the Rs, who lost once again at the weekend. They lost 2-1 at Wigan, a side who are in awful form having slipped down into the relegation battle. QPR have fallen into the bottom half of the table, with their playoff push all but over. They’ll be hoping to keep their cup run alive, which would be a boost to a campaign which is threatening to fade into nothing. Can they live up to their favourites tag on Tuesday night and book a place in the last 16 of the FA Cup?

      Portsmouth are making a march for Championship football, but they slipped out of the top two after a weekend draw with Doncaster. The visitors need to see out the next few months to win the tight battle at the top of League One. A cup run might not be perfect for them right now, but it’s hard to pass up the opportunity they have in this clash at Loftus Road. While the visitors had a slip in their push to jump into the second tier, they’re travelling to face an out of form side who have a terrible FA Cup record.

      The hosts have won one of their last eight matches in this competition. Their last home clean sheet in the FA Cup came back in 2012, while they’ve been poor defensively of late. The hosts have conceded in their last six matches, while they’ve let in over a goal per game at their own ground this season. That’s going to make it tough for them to claim the home tie with Watford that awaits the winner of this clash.

      Portsmouth are handy on the road, having made it this far thanks to away wins in the first three rounds. They have scored on the road in 16 of their last 17 trips, which should see them trouble a QPR defence who are struggling. Overall, Pompey have found the net in 87% of their league games, and with a fine run in the cup behind them, we expect that to continue here. We are backing both teams to score, which has landed in five of their last six head to head encounters.
