Holloway & Freedman

Queens Park Rangers will face Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship this evening.

Former Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has predicted on Skysports.com that this evening’s Championship game between Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday will end in a draw.

QPR will host Wednesday at Loftus Road, and former Rangers manager Holloway believes that the match will finish 1-1.

“Sheffield Wednesday are consistently performing every week and are much better than I'd thought they'd be,” the Englishman wrote on Skysports.com.

“Loftus Road is always a tough place to go in midweek under the floodlights but I'm just not sure where QPR are at the moment.”
