Blackpool welcome QPR to Bloomfield Road for a matchday 17 fixture in the EFL Championship on Saturday.

The victory helped the capital side climb to fifth spot in the table with 25 points garnered from 16 matches so far. Blackpool are in 10th spot but a win could propel the Seasiders into the playoff spots.

Blackpool vs QPR Prediction

The home side have impressed on their return to the Championship and a win would see them usurp their opponents into the playoff spots. QPR are unlikely to let that happen though and will give their all to leave Lancashire with something.

Although one side can nick a win here, we are backing the spoils to be shared with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Blackpol 1-1 QPR
