Huddersfield Town have won just once in their last five games but are still eight points off the bottom three.

A win could take them into the top half should a number of results go their way, although unlikely, but the hosts will be happy as long as they don’t make it two defeats in as many games.

QPR are a point and place behind Huddersfield, having also won just once in the past five outings.

This is set to be a tight affair but an important encounter for each team's respective season aspirations.


Huddersfield Town vs QPR Head-to-head

Huddersfield are enjoying a five-game unbeaten run against QPR, winning three of those.

The last time they tasted defeat against the London club was in 2015, and that was on home soil too.

This will be the ninth consecutive time these two clubs meet in a Championship encounter.

The historical records are neck-and-neck, both winning 13 games apiece and drawing nine fixtures.

Huddersfield Town vs QPR Prediction

The Terriers may be higher than their opponents in the table but QPR have arguably performed better of late, without getting the results they may have deserved.

QPR could finally find some success again this weekend, with the attacking threat they possess likely to overcome the home side.
