QPR v Brentford Betting Preview
Venue: Loftus Road
Channel: Sky Sports Football
Monday evening will see 13th placed Brentford visit Loftus Road to play against 16th placed QPR, with a mere 2 points separating the sides.
QPR will be looking to end a three match losing streak after being beat 2-0 by Derby. Brentford will also be looking to pick up 3 points after a disappointing 1-1 draw against Burton Albion, who linger in the relegation zone.
All 4 of QPR’s joint top goalscorers (Washington, Sylla, Mackie & Smith), along with the rest of the team, will want to get the goals flowing, having only scored 2 goals in the last 4 games. The Hoops’ defence will also want to be on the lookout when it comes to set pieces, one of Brentford’s forte
Four of Brentford’s 5 defeats came from away matches, so they’ll want to rely on their defence to keep the lead should they score. The Bees’ top goalscorer, 21 year-old Ollie Watkins, will want to end his goal drought, having failed to score since his team’s clash with Birmingham earlier this month. As a result, Sergi Canós could be given the opportunity to prove himself upfront.
Nedum Onuoha, Grant Hall and James Perch will miss out due to injury for QPR, whereas Alan Judge, Rico Henry and Henrik Dalsgaard will also be left out.
Potential QPR Starting XI: Smithies, Robinson, Baptiste, Lynch, Wszolek, Scowen, Freeman, Bidwell, Mackie, N’Gbakoto, Washington.
Potential Brentford Starting XI: Bentley, Clarke, Bjelland, Egan, Barbet, Mokotjo, Woods, Jozefzoon, Sawyers, Watkins, Canos.
