QPR vs Bristol City Prediction
QPR will be looking to bounce back to winning ways after their unbeaten start to the season was ended by a superior Bournemouth. Bristol City have blown hot and cold this term but are capable of taking advantage if given the opportunity.
The hosts are expansive in their play which could see Nigel Pearson's side given goalscoring opportunities. However, we are backing the hosts to triumph in a narrow victory with goals at both ends.
Prediction: QPR 2-1 Bristol City
