QPR v Burnley Preview, Championship, Saturday 1st February 2014

Queens Park Rangers have a mountain to climb after dropping a serious amount of points to current Championship leaders Leicester City last month as they now trail 8 points with a game in hand. They will seriously be needing a win on Saturday to close the gap to 5 and also put a respectable 6 points between themselves and Burnley who are hot on their heels. QPR seem to have gotten over their blip in form in December having now won 4 on the trot to keep up the pressure.

Burnley like QPR were also knocked out of the FA Cup this month to Premiership opposition and although they went a reasonable distance they can now concentrate on applying pressure to QPR and current Championship leaders Leicester City. There is however 11 points between them and the league leaders and a win on Saturday against QPR who are 3 points in front can only aid in their push for Premiership promotion possibilities.

QPR Team News:

A few QPR players have been in the transfers news this month with Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar one of the bigger names. We also see Adel Taarabt been released from Premiership side Fulham who announced he had no place in their relegation battle as was seen as more of a nuisance than any help, and now we see the Moroccan in Italy taking a medical with AC Milan who are in search of his services.

Burnley Team News:

Burnley chief executive Lee Hoos has gone on paper and said the club are currently chasing a couple of players in aid of strengthening the squad for their promotion push. They have already signed Ashley Barnes on a three and a half year deal from Brighton who could be set to play on Saturday.

Burnley: D D W L W

Both teams sit very close together in the Championships heading into this Saturdays game and after a few games not playing at their best it gives QPR the edge when it comes down to form between the two. QPR’s only loss in their last five games is in the FA Cup where they lost 4 – 0 to Premiership side Everton.

QPR v Burnley Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With every piece of information taken into account you can’t help but want to back the home side in Saturdays clash of the big three. QPR will seriously want and need to win this one if they hold any hopes of piling on the pressure on current leaders Leicester City who with eight points clear currently, granted they do have a game in hand and a win for QPR will only close the gap enough as they continue to hope Leicester may drop points in the future.

Burnley on the other hand only sit three points behind QPR and a win for them on Saturday will see them climb above the London side on goal difference and will see them occupy the automatic play-off position which will no doubt anger and worry Harry Redknapp. QPR have only played Burnley at home once in the last 5 head to head statistics and even then only managed a draw, so it could be a result seen once more as both teams clash horns in hope of the win.

So lets get down to some predictions, the first for me will be a score draw which could prove worthwhile given the two clubs history especially as Burnley have drawn 3 of the 5 games drawn between the two sides. the next for me will be for both teams to score and for QPR to win the game which I feel very strongly has a good chance of happening.
