Fresh off the back of ending their eight-game losing streak, Cardiff City welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday.

The visitors, meanwhile, head into the game without a win in their last three games across all competitions and will be looking to end this dry spell.

Cardiff City ended their dire losing streak in style as they came from three goals down to salvage a 3-3 draw away to Stoke City last Saturday.

Prior to that, Steve Morison’s men were on a run of eight defeats on the trot, conceding 19 goals and scoring just one.

The result saw Cardiff City move three points clear of the relegation zone as they have picked up 12 points from 15 games.

QPR, on the other hand, failed to return to winning ways last time out as they played out a 1-1 home draw with Nottingham Forest.

This followed a fourth-round exit from the EFL Cup after they lost on penalties to Sunderland following a goalless draw in normal time.

Despite their recent struggles, QPR are currently eighth in the EFL Championship table with 22 points from 15 games and could move into the playoff places with a win.
