QPR – Sheffield Utd Preview
- With QPR firmly in the promotion hunt at the beginning of February, Mark Warburton’s side may have earmarked this final home game of the season against Sheffield United as the game where they could share the ‘embrace’ of the ‘R’s’ faithful in securing a play-off spot. Fast forward 16 Championship fixtures (W3, D3, L10) and QPR’s promotion race is in tatters, though two wins from their last two games would at least give them their highest Championship points tally since 2013/14, but that would be little consolation in reality.
- It’s hard to find a silver lining for QPR at the moment, even despite winning their last home outing against now relegated Derby (1-0). Securing back-to-back home league wins for the first time in 2022 is possible here, but with QPR having lost each of the last four H2Hs – all by exactly a one-goal margin – that might be easier said than done.
- In contrasting fashion, sixth-placed Sheffield United’s season has been a bit of a slow burner, but following up last weekend’s victory over Cardiff with a victory here would keep them in charge of their play-off destiny with just one game to go. A win could even secure a top-six spot results pending elsewhere, but it’s unlikely to be that straightforward for this inconsistent Sheffield United side though, as they haven’t recorded back-to-back wins since February, and failed to win any of their last six away league games (D3, L3)!
- The lion’s share of those road trips have been largely uninspiring, with five producing two or fewer goals and Sheffield United failing to score in four. Boss Paul Heckingbottom could be the man to put an end to that dreadful run on their travels though, as against no other side has he won more managerial games than against QPR (three), though none have come at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium (L2).
- Players to watch: Luke Amos has scored the decisive goal in three of QPR’s last five home league wins – all after the 80th minute, whilst Sheffield United’s Morgan Gibbs-White has seen nine of his 11 goals this season arrive after half-time.
- Hot stat: No Championship team has scored fewer away league goals after the 75th minute than Sheffield United’s two.
