After three defeats in a row, Harry Redknapp's men are in desperate need of three points to keep up their automatic promotion hopesLeeds United travel to London in the early kick-off this weekend in the Championship, with under pressure QPR the opposition.
The Rs have struggled of late, losing their last three games and their hopes of finishing in the top two are fading by the match. Leeds United themselves have been in turmoil behind the scenes in recent weeks with a possible takeover still not being finalised and financial worries distracting from matters on the pitch.
Leeds sit in midtable seven points off Reading who occupy the final play-off spot. Brian McDermott's side have only been beaten once in their last five matches and look like a more solid unit after a woeful run earlier in the season which saw them lose five in a row. bet365 price the Whites at 3/1 (4.00) to pick up three points.
QPR boasted some of the best home form in the league until they lost to Reading last time out at Loftus Road 3-1. The Rs are going through a sticky stage as we enter the business end of the season and they will be very aware of the need to get back on track given the expectations upon them. With Redknapp's men not having won in their last four matches, they are under huge pressure to deliver on Saturday but this is certainly not a straightforward victory in waiting for the hosts. bet365 price them at 10/11 (1.91) to win the match, with the same firm pricing the draw at 12/5 (3.40).
Leeds United brought in Sunderland's Connor Wickham this week on a loan deal until the end of the season, and the former Sheffield Wednesday striker will be looking to make an immediate impact for Leeds. With four goals in his last five matches for Wednesday, he comes into this game in form and is 3/1 (4.00) to net any time.
Whilst that may be worth a small investment, looking for a safer option, the both teams to score bet is certainly worth backing. QPR have been involved in some high scoring matches at home recently and have struggled to keep a clean sheet. The even money (2.00) price with bet365 has paid out easily in QPR's last five home matches and they are a far different side now to the one that built their early season form on the back of being the most solid defence in the division.
