QPR host Rotherham at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday, with both sides being in similar form of late.

QPR are currently 5th in the EFL Championship and have been in decent form recently, having won three of their last five games. Mark Warburton's side will be going into the game off the back of two consecutive wins. They will hope to extend their streak with a win against Rotherham.

Rotherham have been flying this season. Paul Warne's side are currently top of League One and have only lost five games across all competitions this season. They will look to continue their strong form with a win against QPR on Saturday.

QPR vs Rotherham Head-to-Head

It's hard to choose between the two sides based on their recent head-to-head record, with both sides having won two of their last five meetings against each other.

Rotherham came away as 3-1 winners the last time the two sides met back in April 2021. A Freddie Ladapo brace and a goal from Michael Smith were enough to secure the win on the night after Lyndon Dykes opened the scoring for QPR.
