Foot Predictions shows Saturday’s championship clash between Queens Park Rangers and Bournemouth, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Queens Park Rangers will target another top six scalp on Saturday when they host Bournemouth.
Rangers defeated rivals at West London Brentford on Wednesday and moved up to 16th in the league, which means that a trip to Loftus Road will not be easy for sixth place Cherries.
QPR lost at halftime against the Bees, who pushed the promotion, but two goals within four minutes of the second half in January. Sam Field and Charlie Austin secured a 2-1 victory and the right to brag about it locally.
Mark WarburtonThe men are now eight points ahead of the relegation zone, after an impressive turnaround in form since the turn of the year – they have won five of their six league games so far in 2021, after not winning any of the final nine in 2020.
The transformation effectively saved Warburton’s job, and he has much to thank Austin, 31, who has scored three goals in six games since returning to the club.
On the subject of talismanic attackers, Bournemouth may have one in his hiding place at the weekend, as they are supposedly interested in naming Thierry Henry as your new manager.
Jonathan Woodgate has done well to stabilize the ship during his time in temporary position, with a 1-0 win over Rotherham United on Wednesday, the third win in four matches since Jason Tindall He was fired.
Philip Billing scored the only goal of the match in the middle of the first half, and Bournemouth is now a little more comfortable in the playoffs with a six-point advantage over Cardiff City in seventh place.
They have a crucial meeting with the Bluebirds on Tuesday and then face fourth place, Watford, four days later, so the trip to QPR will be vital to building momentum.
Only Brentford have scored more league goals than Bournemouth this season. However, Cherries have won just one of their last seven away games.
Saturday’s clash will therefore be an intriguing battle, as QPR’s victory over Brentford was only their second win in their last eight matches on Loftus Road and only five league teams have scored fewer goals at home this season.
Bournemouth have won just two of their last 13 meetings with QPR, and won their last win in West London in 1959. This season’s reverse game ended 0-0 in October.

All news from the teams
Mark Warburton has named the same team in the last two QPR games and has won both, so he may be tempted to remain unchanged again.

Jack Wilshere is in contention to return to the Bournemouth lineup after being rested against Rotherham, while David Brooks you can also start after playing as a reserve on Wednesday.
Chris Mepham is fit again, but it can be tricky for him to dislodge Cameron Carter-Vickers in the center of defense, as the American has helped maintain three games without conceding goals in the last three games.

Both teams are in strong form, so this is a difficult bet. A few months ago, Bournemouth was a big favorite, but you shouldn’t underestimate QPR, especially after Hoops won over Brentford. We think this device will end up level.
