The penultimate game week of the English Championship will see Queens Park Rangers (QPR) host Sheffield United at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Friday night.

QPR are in abysmal form lately and need a few extraordinary results to secure playoff football. They were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City last time out and failed to impress offensively, managing no shots on target. QPR sit tenth in the league table with 63 points from 44 games and will look to return to winning ways this weekend.

Sheffield, meanwhile, have also struggled for results of late but returned to winning ways last time out, beating Cardiff City 1-0 at Bramall Lane to keep their promotion hopes alive. Iliman Ndiaye scored the sole goal of the game, which was his fifth league strike of the season.

The Blades are sixth in the league table with 69 points from 44 games. They will look to build on their latest result this weekend to strengthen their grip on the final playoff spot.

Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield United Prediction

QPR have lost six of their last eight league games. They have won just one of their last four home outings and are more or less out of the reckoning for promotion. Sheffield, meanwhile, have struggled of late but have lost just one of their last games and should come out on top on Friday.

Prediction: QPR 1-2 Sheffield United.
