In the Championship tonight, West Brom will play host to QPR at The Hawthorns. This match poses a challenging task for QPR, who have faced four consecutive losses in the league and currently find themselves in the 22nd position on the Championship table. In contrast, West Brom is in the 9th place and has suffered only one loss in their last seven league matches. They drew 0-0 at home against Plymouth in their last outing, while QPR endured a 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield Town.
Following their recent loss in Yorkshire and in anticipation of tonight’s game, QPR manager Gareth Ainsworth expressed his thoughts on West Brom. He specifically highlighted the skills of three West Brom players – Jed Wallace, Nathaniel Chalobah, and Alex Mowatt. Ainsworth emphasized the need for his team to be fully prepared and aware of West Brom’s strengths to secure a victory.
All three mentioned players were part of West Brom’s last match against Plymouth, with Jed Wallace now serving as the team’s captain in his second season at the club.
For QPR, the current situation in the league is quite challenging. Going up against West Brom, one of the toughest away opponents in the Championship, adds to their difficulties. Additionally, West Brom has historically been a challenging team for QPR to face.
West Brom possesses considerable quality, as Ainsworth pointed out. Carlos Corberan could make changes to his lineup and still field a strong team. In contrast, QPR does not have the same luxury, making it a positive outcome if they can manage to secure any points from this game. The match is scheduled to kick off at 8 pm tonight.
