- Watford boast the best home form in the Championship having collected 32 points from a possible 39
- QPR have failed to win in 12 of their last 15 league matches
- Four of Watford’s last five victories have been by a single goal
Home comforts can help Watford sink QPR
Watford are in a commanding position to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking and the happy Hornets can keep their hopes of automatic promotion alive with victory over QPR.
The Hornets were held to a goalless draw at Millwall on Tuesday but they had recorded three straight successes prior to that and, even so, are far more reliable at Vicarage Road.
Watford boast the best home form in the Championship and have collected 32 of their 47-point total at Vicarage Road.
Xisco’s men have won ten and drawn two of their 13 home league assignments and they should be too strong for inconsistent visitors QPR, who have failed to win 12 of their last 15 Championship clashes.
The London-based visitors were beaten 1-0 at home to Derby last time out and make little appeal upped in class at Watford, who have won their last three matches on their own patch to nil which includes accounting for table toppers Norwich.
We predict Watford to win but four of their last five league victories have been recorded by a single goal, so QPR should at least be able to stay competitive.
Two of Watford’s last three home league wins finished 1-0 and this may follow suit – QPR have suffered two of their last three league defeats by that scoreline.
