Wycombe Wanderers’ long wait for a win continues as they suffered a third straight loss after being beaten by Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

They sit second-bottom of the EFL Championship, having claimed just two league victories all season and picked up only 11 points in 19 games.

QPR find themselves in an uncomfortable position too, just three points off the bottom three.

They have suffered three losses and drawn twice in their last five games – a winless run they will want to quash as soon as possible.

These two teams have only met six times in their history, both winning two, losing two and drawing two games apiece.

The last two matches in 2003 and 2004 respectively ended in draws, with QPR the last team to win a tie between the pair, winning 2-1 in 2002.

All six matches were Division 2 fixtures, with these sides having first met in 2001 when Wycombe won 1-0.

Wycombe have never lost to QPR at home, winning two and drawing the other of the three home ties they have played against this weekend’s opponents.

Wycombe Wanderers vs QPR Prediction

The tide needs to quickly change for Wycombe if they are to stay in the division.

Neither side have impressed punters this season and it could be a drab spectacle - although do not underestimate the importance of the clash.

We expect the hosts to claim their third win of the league season on Saturday.

Prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 QPR
