QPR will welcome Rotherham United to Loftus Road on Tuesday for a matchday 13 clash in the EFL Championship.

The two sides have been inconsistent in their performances to date. They share a similar standing on the table, with QPR occupying 18th spot with 14 points earned from 12 games, while their visitors are directly below them in 19th.

The hosts come into this clash on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Watford, while Rotherham United were on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat away to Swansea City.


QPR vs Rotherham United Head-to-Head

This will be the 18th meeting between the two sides and QPR have the slightly-superior head-to-head record.

The capital side were victorious on seven occasions in the past, while Rotherham United picked up six wins. Five previous matches ended in a stalemate.

The most recent meeting between the sides came in March 2019 when a late goal by Nigeria international Seyi Ajayi was enough to give Rotherham a 2-1 away win.

QPR have scored 12 goals in their 12 matches to date, while Rotherham have scored 10 goals, suggesting that we could be in for a low-scoring affair.

Although there is a possibility for a slim one-goal victory, it is more likely that we could witness a goalless draw.

Prediction: QPR 0-0 Rotherham United
