Queens Park Rangers will host Birmingham City in an EFL Championship fixture at Loftus Road on Saturday. Both sides are heading into the match on the back of disappointing defeats in the mid-week, with the hosts suffering a humiliating 6-1 loss away to Blackpool, while the Blues were thrashed 3-0 by Watford. As of now, the Hoops are languishing at the 19th spot in the English second tier standings, having collected 42 points from 37 games, seven clear of the relegation zone. The visitors, meanwhile, are sitting one place above the Super Hoops, level on points, but separated by goal-difference.

QPR suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday, courtesy of Andy Lyons’ brace and one goal each from Jerry Yates, Curtis Nelson, Jordan Thorniley and Kenny Dougall. Meanwhile, Chris Martin’s 43rd-minute effort proved to be just a consolation goal for the R’s. Prior to that, Gareth Ainsworth’s side edged past Watford last Saturday, thanks to Tim Iroegbunam’s lone goal inside the opening 15 minutes. It was QPR’s first win in their last 14 Championship games and 11th league-victory of the season. The Hoops have the joint-worst defensive record in the second tier alongside rock-bottom side Wigan Athletic, having conceded 58 goals this season so far.
Birmingham, on the other hand, suffered their 17th league-defeat of the season on Tuesday against Watford. Imran Louza and Keinan Davies found the back of the net inside the opening 16 minutes, before Britt Assombalonga 74th-minute effort sealed the victory for the Hornets. Last weekend, John Eustace’s side defeated Rotherham United 2-0 to secure their 11th league-win of the season, thanks to first-half efforts from Reda Khadra and Kevin Long. Meanwhile, the reverse fixture in October ended 2-0 in favour of Birmingham, courtesy of Auston Trusty’s fourth-minute opener and Longelo Emmanuel’s effort, on the half-hour mark.
