One defeat… Predicting Queens Park Rangers’ first five Championship games

We take a close look at QPR's Championship matches against Charlton, Cardiff City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Rotherham United and Huddersfield Town.

Charlton Athletic v Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers will be determined to make a strong start to the 2015-16 Championship campaign and pick up all three points against Charlton Athletic.

Winning away from home at The Valley will not be easy, but Rangers do have a squad good enough to pick up all three points on the opening weekend of the season.

Prediction: 0-3

Queens Park Rangers v Cardiff City

Chris Ramsey’s side will be looking to pick up maximum points from their home games this season, as that could prove to be key in them finishing in the top two of the Championship.

Cardiff City will have ambition of finishing in the top six and will be keen on taking at least a point at Loftus Road.

Prediction: 1-0

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Queens Park Rangers

Wolverhampton Wanderers have a very good squad and will be aiming for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Just like QPR, Kenny Jackett’s side will be looking to win all of their home matches, and one should expect them to collect all three points against Rangers.

Prediction: 3-1

Queens Park Rangers v Rotherham United

An easy win for QPR against a side tipped by many to get relegated? Probably.

Prediction: 3-0

Huddersfield Town v Queens Park Rangers

One of Rangers’ main problems last season was winning matches away from home. It led to their relegation from the Premier League, and one suspects that the London outfit will be determined to rectify that.

On paper, QPR should win comfortably, but Huddersfield can be a tricky opponent on their own turf.

Prediction: 1-2
