QPR 8/5 to beat Rotherham in Tuesday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: QPR win

Odds: 8/5 @ 888sport

Looking to make it back-to-back Championship wins in midweek, QPR will make the trip to relegation scrappers Rotherham on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Rotherham might have entered March’s international break with a much-needed 2-0 win against Bristol City, it appears that might have been just a minor boost for The Millers. Having to settle for a 0-0 stalemate against an inconsistent Huddersfield over the weekend, The Reds are still in an uphill battle to avoid an immediate League One return this season. Picking up just a single point from their three Championship contests in April, Paul Warne’s side still find themselves sat six points adrift of safety. Facing what could be a stern test on home soil once again in midweek, Rotherham have also gained a reputation for their extended issues at The New York Stadium. Last seen on home soil getting hit with a 3-0 drumming against Wycombe, Tuesday’s hosts have lost each of their last five Championship matchups in South Yorkshire.

As for the visitors, really bouncing back from that defeat against Nottingham Forest earlier in the month, QPR once again laid down another marker over the weekend. Putting on a rampant display as they clinched a 4-1 win against relegation scrappers Sheffield Wednesday, the Londoners have found a route into the top-half of the Championship table. Along with managing to pick up thumping victories against the likes of Millwall and Coventry over the past month, The Hoops should also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Tuesday’s hosts. Smelling what could be a real chance to make it back-to-back wins in South Yorkshire in midweek, Mark Warburton’s side landed a 3-2 win when they welcomed Rotherham to the capital in the reverse fixture.
