English Premier

2012-05-06 - QPR v Stoke City

A Sports Betting Preview by Auls

QPR v Stoke City
Football: English Premier League
Sunday 6 May 2012 - Kick Off 2pm


QPR


QPR were thumped 6-1 at Chelsea last weekend in the West London derby and that result has left them in a very tough position as we enter the final two games of the season. They are currently just out of the relegation zone due to a superior goal difference over Bolton Wanderers, but with a trip to Manchester City as their last game of the season, Rangers know they cannot afford anything less than a win on Sunday.

The team are 17th in the Premier League table but can move up to 16th if they get the win as Wigan Athletic are not playing until Monday night. They have a 6-5-7 record at Loftus Road, scoring 23 goals and conceding 25, and it has been their form here on which they have based their foundations for survival.

Rangers have won their last 4 League games at home, including against the likes of Liverpool (from 0-2 down), Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, results that have kept them with their heads just above water. They have also interchanged these results with defeats away from home so they really have to win this game and hope Bolton Wanderers falter in their final two games.

Adel Taarabt was suspended for the loss at Chelsea and is expected to be restored to the starting line up. Samba Diakite has been suffering with an illness and will need to pass a fitness test.


Stoke City


This is usually the time of the season when the long season begins to catch up with Stoke City, although there is still the benefit of finishing in the top half of the table up for grabs. Tony Pulis was recently talking about how players could be motivated at this stage of the season when there isn't a lot to play for and has suggested he may introduce a sliding bonus scale for next season that changes with final League position.

Unfortunately, that is not in place this season as Stoke sit in 13th place in the Premier League. They have gained 44 points this season and will have a chance to still finish higher than the 13th they ended the 2011 season in. The Potters have struggled away from home, going 4-4-10 this season, scoring just 11 goals and conceding 32.

The team have won just 1 of their last 10 games in all competitions, that coming against relegated Wolves at home after they had fallen 0-1 down in that game. Stoke's away form has seen them fail to win a game in their last 7 in all competitions since recording a win at League Two Crawley Town, while they have lost 5 of their last 7 away games in the Premier League.

It was suggested before the Everton game that Tony Pulis would make a change between the sticks for the final three games, and that remains a possibility for this one with Thomas Sorensen coming in. Jermaine Pennant, Andy Wilkinson and Rory Delap will all need to pass fitness tests.


Head to Head


QPR stunned Stoke City at the Brittania Stadium earlier this season when they recorded a 2-3 win.

These two teams last met at Loftus Road in the 2007/08 season when QPR beat a soon to be promoted Stoke 3-0.

Rangers have now won 3 of their last 5 home games against Stoke.


Prediction


There is an old saying that when a team 'needs' a win, it is usually because they are a bad team and that is the case for QPR who know anything less than 3 points in this one will see them in huge danger of going down.

That thought is surely going to put a lot of pressure on the home team in this game, but they have been fortunate that the fixture list compiler has given them the opportunity to host Stoke City, a team with nothing to play for and one that has been a little off the pace over the last month or so.

However, I cannot seriously contemplate taking QPR at the prices alone as they look a little short- instead I am going to back them to win, but with at least 3 goals scored in the game and that can be backed at 3.40 at Ladbrokes.

QPR have been playing well at home in recent weeks, but their games have also been pretty high scoring with 3 in a row going over the total goals until they met Tottenham here in their last game. In fact, 4 of the last 5 QPR wins at Loftus Road have come with at least 3 total goals being scored as they continue to struggle defensively.

Stoke themselves are not really involved in too many overs, but it is telling that they have conceded to every other team that currently occupies the bottom six places when playing away from home, while 3 of those games did go over.

With the home side more motivated, I think they may just sneak the win after both sides trouble the scoreboard.
