QPR are completely out of shape. Home side team are already losing 6 out of last 8 matches at each competition. 5 straight into domestic league. Also, with the close schedule playing a match on every 3-4 days, their weakness appears most often. The only good things is the fact of having comfortable 10 pts more above the relegation zone which makes them safe for now. But overall, QPR struggles a lot, expecially defensivly where on 9 out of last 10 games overall allows at least once conceded goal. By latest news, only Cameron and Rangel are only unavailable players at the squad.
WBA after losing the FA Cup match vs Brighton and finishing the extra competition, visitors are now focused on their goal, reaching the Premier League spot on table by direct promotion. With the current level of playing, they are quiet close. Recently 4th on standing, only 4 pts less than 2nd placed squad of Sheffield Utd and 6 less than 1st placed squad of Norwich.
The competition on top of the ranking is hard, several teams are into this race, so every point on last 13 rounds counts even more. Visitors are coming full with confidence, with positive run by 2 wins and one draw outcome, confirming their good shape recently. The 2nd best high-scoring squad which have full quality present, need to try keep going ahead of their reaching points. Morrison and Phillips are only unavailable players.
I see visitors have advantage at this match-up. With recent hosts defensive strugglings and with visitors recent and overall offensive and scoring abilities, it’s very possible QPR to continue struggling at that segment vs one of the best hard attacking opponents. Also, WBA has one of the best attacking line-up with best top scorers Gayle 16 scored goals and Rodriguez 17 scored goals. Using standard 4-3-3 formation, expect to see in-shape squad to be able to continue producing vs recently defensivly weak opponent.
