Bolton haven`t taken any points from the last three league meetings against QPR (L3).

QPR`s win over Bolton at the Macron Stadium in August 2013 ended a run of five successive defeats there for them.

Bolton are looking to score in five consecutive league matches for the first team this season.

Besides Blackburn, QPR are the only other team in the bottom half of the Championship to have kept 10 or more clean sheets this season.

Bolton are one of three teams (along with opponents QPR and Reading) currently in the bottom half of the Championship that have lost fewer than four home games (3).

After conceding just once in their previous four games before last weekend, QPR conceded three times against Fulham.

QPR have won just 18% of their league games when Alejandro Faurlin has been absent, compared to 35% when he has played this season.

Matt Phillips has created 56 goalscoring chances for QPR this season; 27 more than any other player.

Jamie Mackie has scored in both of his last two appearances against Bolton.

QPR have seen just nine different players score for them this season; a joint-league-low alongside Reading and Preston.

Match Prediction:


1-1 Draw.

Although starting with three central midfielders in this one might appear defensive against a side like Bolton, QPR`s lack of mobility or defensive strength in the middle of midfield was highlighted against Fulham and needs to be compensated for this weekend. If QPR can pinch a goal early on then it gives us a platform to build on and who knows after that. However, I feel a score draw is the most likely outcome here given JFH`s record at QPR so far.
