📏 Form Guide
Blackpool will be hoping to bounce back here following the 2-0 Championship losing effort in their last game against Bristol City.
In that match, Blackpool managed 36% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, Bristol City had 18 shots on goal with 3 on target. Andreas Weimann (58') and Alex Scott (81') scored for Bristol City.
Blackpool have been quite ineffective in attack of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 vs opposition teams over the course of their previous 6 outings. In those games, Blackpool have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 8.
Heading into this contest, Blackpool haven't been defeated in their previous 5 home league matches.
Queens Park Rangers
QPR come into this game after a 1-0 Championship win vs Watford in their previous fixture.
In that game, Queens Park Rangers had 40% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Queens Park Rangers was Tim Iroegbunam (15'). On the other side, Watford got 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target.
The numbers tell their own story, and QPR have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 14 goals in total. In defence, Queens Park Rangers just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of trend won’t necessarily follow through into this game, however.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Queens Park Rangers:
- haven't been beaten by Blackpool when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. An impressive run.
- are without an away win for the past 6 league matches.
👥 Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head meetings going back to 14/12/2013, there has been little to separate the clubs with Blackpool winning 2 of those games, QPR 2 and 2 being draws after 90 minutes of play.
A sum of 12 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 6 of them for The Seasiders and 6 netted by The R's. The average goals per game has been 2.
The last league game featuring these sides was Championship match day 4 on 16/08/2022 when it finished Queens Park Rangers 0-1 Blackpool.
That day, Queens Park Rangers managed 61% possession and 12 shots on goal with 6 of them on target.
Blackpool got 14 shots on goal with 4 on target. Josh Bowler (45') was the scorer.
The match was refereed by Andy Davies.
📰 Team News: Blackpool
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Blackpool boss Mick McCarthy to contend with due to a largely intact squad. Keshi Anderson (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) misses out.
We think that The Seasiders could make use of the 3-4-2-1 system with Chris Maxwell, Callum Connolly, Curtis Nelson, Jordan Thorniley, Andy Lyons, James Husband, Charlie Patino, Lewis Fiorini, Morgan Rogers, CJ Hamilton and Jerry Yates.
📋 Team News: QPR
With a completely healthy squad available to choose from, the QPR manager Gareth Ainsworth doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
We reckon that The R's could decide to play in a 3-1-4-2 lineup by sending out Seny Dieng, Rob Dickie, Jimmy Dunne, Sam Field, Andre Dozzell, Aaron Drewe, Tim Iroegbunam, Jamal Lowe, Osman Kakay, Lyndon Dykes and Chris Martin.
Our thinking is that Queens Park Rangers and Blackpool are probably both going to find scoring goals difficult here.
We’ll see, but this could easily end up all-square. We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-0 draw at full-time.
