Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship clash between Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

Queens Park Rangers host Bristol City in the Championship on Tuesday night, with both sides looking to get back to winning ways after suffering away defeats on Saturday.

The Robins have picked up more points on their travels in the league this season, while QPR are hoping to go five matches unbeaten at Loftus Road.

Match preview

Mark Warburton was left aggrieved as he felt that "some very questionable decisions" cost his QPR side in their 2-1 loss to local rivals Brentford on Friday night.

Lyndon Dykes's equaliser was cancelled out by Ivan Toney's header in the second half to secure Brentford's fifth successive victory over the Hoops.

QPR are the same number of points clear of the relegation zone as they are to the top six, but Warburton will be keen to ensure that the gap to the playoffs is narrowed and that they move further away from the bottom three.

The Hoops have a poor record against Tuesday's opponents, losing their last five league matches against the Robins – their worst losing run against them since 1927.

Warburton has also failed to beat Bristol City in any of his last four games as a manager, including a 3-1 defeat in 2014 when he was Brentford's boss.

Victory in midweek would be QPR's fifth of the league campaign and could move them into the top half of the table.

After a run of three consecutive league victories, Bristol City have since drawn 0-0 to Watford before suffering a 3-1 away defeat to Reading on Saturday, both of which were top-six clashes.

As a result, the Robins have slipped two places down to fifth in the Championship table and are one point clear of Brentford and Swansea City who are just behind them.

Bristol City have had success on their travels to Loftus Road in recent seasons, with the Robins winning their last two away matches against QPR – as many as in their previous 26 visits to the Hoops.

Head coach Dean Holden will be relying on top goalscorer Nahki Wells this week – a striker who has scored in all three of his away league starts against the Hoops, all of which for Huddersfield Town.

Wells scored 15 goals in 34 Championship appearances at Loftus Road for QPR between August 2018 and January 2020, and will be looking to add to that tally, albeit playing for a different club.

Bristol City, who have won five of their last eight away league matches in London, would move one point behind league leaders Norwich City with a victory on Tuesday night.

Team News

QPR right-back Todd Kane is suspended as he was sent off in the defeat at Brentford, which means Osman Kakay is likely to start as his replacement.

Midfielder Geoff Cameron, who missed Friday's loss due to a fatigue-related injury, is doubtful for Tuesday.

Winger Albert Adomah will be pushing to start against his former club, where he spend three years between 2010 and 2013.

Bristol City boss Dean Holden could revert back to a 4-3-3 formation, after lining up with a 3-5-2 setup in his previous two matches.

Chris Martin, who has begun the last two matches on the bench, could be recalled to the side and replace Famara Diedhiou up front.

Queens Park Rangers possible starting lineup:
Dieng; Kakay, Dickie, Barbet, Wallace; Ball, Carroll; Osayi-Samuel, Chair, Adomah; Dykes

Bristol City possible starting lineup:
Bentley; Hunt, Vyner, Moore, Dasilva; Paterson, Nagy, O'Dowda; Semenyo, Martin, Wells

We say: Queens Park Rangers 1-2 Bristol City

Bristol City are unbeaten in their last four visits to Loftus Road, and with their sights set on closing the gap to table toppers Norwich, the Robins will have the desire to win against a side that have conceded eight goals in their last four matches.
