QPR host Cardiff City at Loftus Road in the EFL Championship on Wednesday, with both sides having had contrasting seasons so far.
QPR are currently fourth in the league, one point off the top of the table. Michael Beale's side have been in good form of late, having won three of their last five games. They will be going into the game off the back of a 3-1 defeat against Luton Town and will look to bounce back with a win against Cardiff this week.
Cardiff City, on the other hand, are currently 18th in the league, five points above the relegation zone. Mark Hudson's side have been in inconsistent form recently, having lost two of their last five games. They will hope to turn things around with a win against QPR on Wednesday.
Both sides will want to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
