Premier League: West Brom v QPR match preview
look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at the Hawthorns
Friday 05 October 2012
Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes takes an injury-plagued defence to the Hawthorns
on Saturday with his side at the foot of the Premier League table.
The 48-year-old admitted he is unlikely to have injured Fabio da Silva, Anton Ferdinand and Jose Bosingwa back in time for the trip to the West-Midlands and after conceding 13 goals in six games so far this season, he’ll be hoping the injuries don’t mount as speculation surrounding his position does.
The West-London club are yet to win a game in the Premier League this season, while the Baggies have had an inconsistent period by recording a defeat, a victory and a draw in their last three fixtures.
KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
West Brom 1 (Dorrans) QPR 0, Premier League, April 2012
QPR 1 (Helguson) West Brom 1, Premier League, December 2011
QPR 3 (Simpson, Connolly, Buzsaky) West Brom 1 (Brunt), Championship, March 2010
West Brom have scored double the amount of league goals QPR have with the Baggies netting eight times to the R’s four.
QPR have not won a top-flight game away to West Brom since a 1-0 victory on 9 November 1985.
Victory on Saturday would give the Baggies their longest run of home wins at the start of a top-flight season since 1919, when they began with six wins.
WBA to win: 1.85
QPR to win: 4.2
