Game:Sheffield Wednesday vs Queens Park Rangers
Kick-off:Saturday 22nd October, 3pm
Sheffield Wednesday’s recent revival hit a wall on Wednesday evening, as QPR continued theirs on Tuesday evening with a 1-0 win over Bristol City. They had to be patient with the goal coming from Idrissa Sylla in the 75th minute, but in the end it was a well-deserved victory that took the R’s unbeaten run to five games.
Wednesday have won five and drawn one of their last eight, so there’s no questioning they’re in good form themselves. They’ll always find it hard to put together any extended winning runs with their away form, but here at home they’re a very dangerous side.
Their fantastic come from behind win where they trailed Bristol City 2-0 was part of a three game winning run at home and four of five overall, so they’d have been disappointed to lose to Brighton here last time out. QPR have won back to back away games just once since they were last promoted from the Championship.

It’s a good opportunity for Wednesday to get back on track here. Despite QPR’s overall form, we know they’re a fragile side on the road who aren’t used to winning. The 2-1 win over Fulham was a huge step in the right direction, but it possibly won’t take much to throw that away and hurtle back towards a fragile mind set on their travels.
