Blackburn are starting to stutter in the Championship promotion race going five without a victory losing three of these. The loss of the influential forward Ben Brereton-Diaz has been felt as he has 20 goals this season some 14 more than his closest teammate. This is shown on the pitch as the Lancashire outfit are now without a league goal since the 24th January. Rovers still sit fifth and a victory over QPR would move them back above them in the promotion race.

At Ewood Park, Rovers have played just one of their last five so will welcome a return to home comforts. They have won six of their last eight in front of their own fans with one draw (to Huddersfield) and a defeat to Nottingham Forest. In just one of the last seven matches here have both teams netted. Each of the last three and four of the last six at this ground have gone under 2.5 goals.

QPR put their own four-game winless run behind them in midweek when they defeated Blackpool 2-1 thanks to a late Luke Amos winner. They sit third in the table just two points behind Bournemouth in second although the Cherries have three games in hand. The two goals in midweek will have given them confidence going forward as numerous injuries in forward positions meant they have netted just once in the three prior.

Away from home, the Rs have lost their last two games but were unbeaten in the six prior to that. Albert Adomah has had some joy in recent road trips grabbing two in his last four but he did not start in midweek. The London outfit have kept a clean sheet in the first-half of each of their last four away games. In just one of their last eight on their travels have QPR conceded more than one goal.

Blackburn vs QPR: Match Stats

Under 2.5 goals looks the way to play this game as Blackburn have failed to score in any of their last five games. QPR meanwhile have only managed three goals in four so this is unikely to be a high-scoring one given all that is at stake as well.

Ilias Chair has two goals in his last five starts and played as part of a front three in midweek without a recognized striker. A lot of the responsibility to create and score in this system falls to him and Willock. The QPR man looks value then to score at any time in this fixture especially if you factor in he netted in the reverse fixture.
