EFL: Rovers vs QPR

Blackburn will host QPR at home to Ewood Park in the match of the 29th round of the English First Division.  The performance of both clubs recently has not been stable, so Blackburn with the advantage of a yard is likely to be the team enjoying the final victory.

The 5-star victory over Sheffield Wednesday last round helped Blackburn to end a series of 6 consecutive matches only to draw and lose.  Currently, the Ewood Park team is temporarily ranked 11th in the rankings with 40 points after 28 rounds.  Blackburn's goal at the moment is to quickly improve their form towards a higher position for the rest of the season, so they need to beat QPR in the upcoming match.

On the other side of the battle line, QPR just had to lose 1-2 before Sheffield Wednesday, thereby officially stopping in the FA Cup arena.  However, the recent performances of this team still yield better results than Blackburn.  Specifically, in the last 5 matches, they won 3 victories and 2 defeats, the highlight of which was the defeat of the second-placed team Leeds United as well as the possession of 14 goals.  Therefore, QPR will probably cause a lot of difficulties for Blackburn in the coming encounter.

Blackburn are the team with the better head-to-head record with 4 wins in their last 5 encounters with QPR.  Therefore, along with their home field advantage, they are rated higher than the opponent and will likely succeed in keeping 3 points at Ewood Park this midweek.
