Going into this one, Queens Park Rangers are without a win at home for the past 5 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Bristol City in FA Cup action, Swansea City and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

In a total of 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Swansea City, at least three goals have been struck.

Ahead of this meeting, Swansea City are undefeated by Queens Park Rangers when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.

Team News: QPR
The QPR boss Neil Critchley will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a completely healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Swansea City
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there’s only the sole fitness issue for the Swansea City gaffer Russell Martin to be concerned with. Liam Walsh (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be in action.
We envisage that Swansea City and Queens Park Rangers could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. That is why we are leaning toward a very close game with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the match.
