Ian Holloway's confident prediction for QPR v Ipswich

QPR Mascot And Fans

The former Queens Park Rangers boss has been previewing their next Championship clash at Loftus Road.

Ian Holloway is confident Ipswich Town will beat QPR 2-1 in the Championship this weekend., according to his regular predictions column for Sky Sports.

Indeed, Ipswich are sixth and QPR 13th heading into the league clash and the former R's boss doesn't fancy the west London side's chances.

And he's cited the Tractor Boys' recent away record as strong evidence of another away win to come.

Holloway told Sky: "This will be a tough ask. Ipswich have picked up more points than any other team over the past six Championship away games and they will be very well organised - as ever."

A look at the Championship table explains why Ipswich are favourites.

Mick McCarthy's men are a good 12 points above QPR as they sit in the play-off places and have six wins in their last 10. For the R's, there is always the constant hope things will suddenly click into gear under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink but that looks more like a long-term process.

QPR have just one win in their last 10 and the motivation of being able to leapfrog Derby and Brighton if other results go their way should certainly spur Ipswich on.
