Preston North End will welcome QPR to Deepdale on Wednesday, with three points at stake in the EFL Championship.

The hosts come into this game on the back of a harrowing 4-0 defeat away to Cardiff City last weekend. They will be looking to get back to winning ways on home turf.

QPR picked up a morale-boosting victory at home to Bournemouth. Goals from Stefan Johansen and Todd Kane either side of a Shane Long goal helped the Loftus Road outfit to all three points.

There is very little to choose from between Preston North End and QPR on the table. Both sides have accrued 39 points, although the visitors have played two games more.

QPR come into this fixture in 13th spot on the table and are ahead of Preston North End by virtue of goal difference.

Preston North End vs QPR Head-to-Head

This will be the 47th meeting between the two sides. Preston North End were victorious on 18 previous occasions, while 16 games ended in a stalemate. Queens Park Rangers have 12 wins to their name.

Their most recent meeting came in October 2020 when two penalties by Scott Sinclair and Daniel Johnson gave Preston North End a 2-0 away win.

QPR will be seeking revenge on Wednesday, as a victory will take them to five consecutive wins in the league.

Preston North End vs QPR Prediction

While they might occupy similar positions on the table, the two sides are in markedly different form.

QPR have been one of the pacesetters in recent weeks and will be looking to keep their impressive run going. They will be buoyed by Preston North End's very poor record on home turf, which could spur the visitors on to a narrow away win.

Prediction: Preston North End 0-1 QPR
