Team News: Bournemouth
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Bournemouth gaffer Scott Parker to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Lewis Cook (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: QPR
From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the QPR gaffer Mark Warburton to be concerned with. Sam Field (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing here.
Here is a game where Queens Park Rangers will have to perform well to breach the defence of this Bournemouth side who will likely get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 winning score for Bournemouth when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
