Match Summary

1 Look out for:

QPR’s defensive resurgence. After a shocking start to the season, which saw the Hoops lose their first four league games, McClaren’s side appear to be showing signs of a recovery. Having conceded 18 goals in their first ten games, the West Londoners’ back line has let in  a solitary strike in their last three matches. 

10/11 Under 2.5 goals scored

One to Watch: Adam Reach

Adam Reach’s scorching volley against Middlesbrough may not have been enough to win his side the game, but the midfielder’s overall performance justified his manager’s tactical reorganisation to allow the former Boro man to play in the hole. Whether or not Luhukay reverts back to a 3-4-3 remains to be seen but with four goals to his name this season, not to mention two assists, Reach will be the in-form player on Tuesday.

Steve McClaren will field a similar XI to the one that beat Ipswich at the weekend, although Nahki Wells and Jordan Cousins will be pushing for recalls.

Jos Luhukay has a minor injury crisis on his hands, with Gary Hooper still unavailable and Fernando Forestieri having missed their Friday night fixture. With Almen Abdi, Kieran Lee and Marco Matias all injured, the coach is short of options in central midfield. 

Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Loftus Road confirm QPR’s recent recovery?

After a disastrous start to the season, Queens Park Rangers could overtake Sheffield Wednesday if they beat the Owls on Tuesday. Jos Luhukay’s side have struggled with consistency so far this term and if they fail to win at Loftus Road, they’ll have done so just once in five games. 

QPR are 19/20 to win this week, and three points could potentially send them into the top half of the Championship. Rangers coasted to an easy victory over Ipswich Town last weekend but face far tougher opposition in Wednesday and need to improve their goal threat against the better teams. 

Wednesday are 14/5  to win at Loftus Road but have failed to do so in nine out of their last 10 trips here. The Owls may have lost their last game but gave a good account of themselves against league leaders Middlesborough and should win on Tuesday with a similar-quality performance. 

A draw is 12/5, with the away side succumbing to four stalemates already this season. Limited forward options may see Wednesday struggle to break QPR’s resolve. 

Tomer Hemed is 5/1 to score first, having hit the target in the victory over Ipswich, as well as during the international break for Israel. The striker will be hoping that this run of form is just the beginning as, with just two league strikes in nine appearances, he may be under threat from from the likes of Nakhi Wells.

Steven Fletcher is 7/1 to score the first goal of the game and enjoyed a purple patch before the international break, with either a goal or an assist in four consecutive matches. The Scot may not have hit the target against Boro but would enjoy reverting to his favoured role as the lone striker, with Wednesday’s wide men feeding him crosses. 

Predicted Score: Queens Park Rangers 2 - 2 Sheffield Wednesday
