Our Prediction:

QPR will win

QPR – Wigan Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

They thus ruined a good atmosphere created by a strong display in the 3-0 thumping of Aston Villa in the previous home fixture. The latest of failures came last weekend when Wigan fell 3-1 away at Nottingham Forest. Interestingly, such result came right after a series of three consecutive league losses at home with a goal difference of 0-7 in the process.

Will Griggs on Fire was the hit song of the Euro 2016 even though the Northern Ireland striker ended up not getting a chance to make a bow in the tournament. The total of 20 goals in 44 appearances at Stadium MK was where Wigan Athletic noticed the Northern Ireland man and moved in to sign him on a three year contract for a 1 million fee in 2015.

Recent Competition Form

That awful record suggests that this trip is a big opportunity for the visitors, but Wigan have been priced up as the favourites. We see value in the betting here, with QPR a decent price to avoid defeat in this trip. Wigan have won none of their last 10 matches against QPR in all competitions (W0 D4 L6), losing the last four in a row. Given their winning run against Wigan, and the fact that the hosts have lost four of their last five games, we like the look of QPR Double Chance.

They suffered a 1-4 disaster at home against Preston North End in the previous league fixture. The Hoops did not shine last weekend in the FA Cup either as they barely avoided a defeat against League One outfit Portsmouth away at Fratton Park. QPR are winless in last four league ties, but the earlier positive series of results still keeps them pretty safe, 15 points away from the danger area. Nahki Wells scored the late second-half equalizer to secure a replay at Loftus Road.

Wigan Athletic - QPR

For QPR, we like the look of Jordan Hugill who had a great record at this level for Preston before a move to West Ham did not work out. Both these players have new options up front so looking at the anytime scorer market could be where to get the value. As the focal point of the attack, we think he could have a good season and like him to net at any time here. For Stoke, Lee Gregory, Benik Afobe and Sam Vokes all provide options up front but Nick Powell can play just off the front players and has already shown at Wigan an eye for goal. Bookmakers make strong favourites to win this and while it is hard to argue with that, it is also hard to get excited by the prices on offer.

The Hoops, on the other hand, failed to win previous four league fixtures, but they are more of a team than Wigan and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the fact that the hosts suffered a dip in form. Wigan Athletic will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest when they host Queens Park Rangers at the DW Stadium. Wigan just cant find their best form and, as a result, they sit in the danger zone in the Championship standings ahead of Matchday 30. It has to be noted that the Latics failed to find the net in three of their last four home games in the English second tier. In previous four meetings between the two teams in the Championship the capital club emerged triumphant.

Stoke vs QPR Predictions

The 27-year-old forward began his career at Stratford Town but it was in Walsall that the world took notice of his presence after 27 goals in 99 performances for the club. Wighan Athletic striker Will Grigg became a viral sensation during the European Championship in France but the chances are any avid football fan will have been well aware of his goalscoring exploits even before 2016.
