Preview: Huddersfield Town vs. Queens Park Rangers - prediction, team news, lineups

:Headline: Preview: Huddersfield Town vs. Queens Park Rangers - prediction, team news, lineups:
Sports Mole previews this Saturday's Championship clash between Huddersfield Town and Queens Park Rangers, including team news, lineups and predictions.

Huddersfield Town and Queens Park Rangers face off in the Championship on Saturday at the John Smith's Stadium, in a crucial meeting between two sides still not clear of the relegation zone.

Neither team is coming into the match in top form, with Huddersfield have won just one of their last five Championship fixtures and QPR only two of their last nine.


Match preview

Danny Cowley made a great start to life as Huddersfield manager guiding the club away from the bottom of the table, but his side remain just three points clear of Luton Town in 22nd.

Despite improvements under the former Lincoln City manager, the Terriers still have the worst home record in the league as well as the fourth worst defensive record.

Following a good run of form before Christmas, Cowley's team have lost three of their last five Championship matches and shipped three first-half goals last time out against Fulham.

The addition of Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has provided a boost, with the England youth international scoring and providing an assist in West London, but the Terriers have not won at home since the new year began.

They have also taken the third fewest shots of any team in the Championship, while top scorer Karlan Grant has just one goal in his last eight league appearances.

The visitors QPR are another team that has been inconsistent this term, with the R's managing just two wins in their last nine league fixtures.

Potent in front of goal and boasting the third best attack in the division, the loss of top scorer Nahki Wells should prove a blow to Mark Warburton's team.

QPR also have the third worst defence in the league, conceding 54 goals in 30 matches, but their away form has been decent and they have picked up five wins on the road so far.

The last time these two sides met the game ended 1-1, with Grant Hall earning QPR a draw with an 83rd-minute equaliser.

Team News

Huddersfield could be without midfielder Alex Pritchard, who is being assessed ahead of Saturday as he returns from a knee injury that has kept him out since December.

Collin Quaner, Kamil Grabara and Matty Daly are all out, while Tommy Elphick will not be seen again this season.

QPR will be without the suspended Geoff Cameron for this game through suspension, while Yoann Barbet has been sidelined because of a knee injury.

Jordan Hugill is also a doubt, which is a concern given the recent departure of Wells, and goalkeeper Joe Lumley is being assessed.

Meanwhile, Toni Leistner and Charlie Owens have been ruled out with knee and hamstring issues respectively.

Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Coleman; Bacuna, Stearman, Schindler, Toffolo; O'Brien, Chalobah; Kachunga, Smith Rowe, Grant; Mounie

Queens Park Rangers possible starting lineup:
Kelly; Kane, Hall, Masterson, Wallace; Ball, Amos; Bright-Samuel, Chair, Eze; Hugill


We say: Huddersfield Town 1-1 Queens Park Rangers

This is set up to be a tight match, with neither side excelling in recent weeks. The loss of Wells and doubts over Hugill will likely limit QPR's attacking capabilities and therefore a draw is probably the most likely outcome.
