Once a stable Premier League team, Stoke are struggling to find its way back to the English top-flight division. Since getting relegated from the Premier League in the 2018/19 season, they were constantly in the lower part of the league's table, with 14th place being their best placement during those five years. This season, the Potters are playing their worst season in the Championship in a long time, as they are 20th with 32 points from 31 matches - just three points away from QPR and the relegation zone. Lately, they have been terrible, losing four in a row, and if they don't change soon, they could easily slide into the danger zone.

Queens Park Rangers are playing its 9th consecutive season in the Championship, where they are mostly in the lower part of the league's table. Last season, they were very close to the relegation zone, and this season, they are once again playing a poor season. They are 22nd with 29 points, just two points away from the safe zone. However, we have seen a big improvement from them lately, as they are currently on a four-game unbeaten run. 

Stoke City vs Queens Park Rangers pick: QPR to win or draw

Stoke City are in terrible form, losing four in a row! To be fair, they had a pretty tough schedule, but it is still a terrible score, regardless. Their defense collapsed in those four matches, allowing 13 goals - 3.25 per game. For some reason, Stoke have also been terrible at home, failing to win in the previous nine games! 

On the other hand, QPR are in excellent form, winning eight points in the last four games. They played really well in those four games, and they deservedly went on a four-game unbeaten run. Now, with a potential win over struggling Stoke, QPR could escape the relegation zone for the first time since September 22! 

In the previous h2h game, in November 2023, QPR won 4:2 at Loftus Road. Considering Stoke's poor form and poor home record, along with QPR's good form, we believe that QPR should win at least one point away from home.

Stoke City team news

The team should have almost the entire squad available. Midfielder Josh Laurent will remain sidelined, and he should be the only player missing the game due to injury.

After a 3:1 loss vs Blackburn Rovers, coach Steven Schumacher spoke to the media. He said he thinks they have enough quality, but they need a little luck for things to go your way. "The only way through it is to attack it head-on. I won't shy away. We have to have a go, roll our sleeves up, and be ready to fight", the coach added.

Queens Park Rangers team news

A key midfielder, Sam Field, missed the previous game vs Norwich due to a one-game suspension. We expect him back in the starting lineup against Stoke City.

After a 2:2 draw vs Norwich, coach Marti Cifuentes spoke to the media. He said they are much better than before, thanks to the new signings. "I can never be happy with just a point, but we played against a strong team that scored two quality goals," the coach added.
