Upset alert? Ian Holloway predicts Burnley v Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers are due to travel to Burnley on Monday evening.

Ian Holloway has told Sky Sports that he does not believe Queens Park Rangers will be able to spring a surprise in the promotion race.

Burnley are due to host QPR on Monday night at Turf Moor, and the pressure will be on them to pick up the three points.

Burnley are involved in one of the tightest promotion races in Championship history - with Sean Dyche’s side locked on points with both Middlesbrough and Brighton & Hove Albion.

As things are so tight, a slip up could now prove fatal to the Clarets’ promotion chances. However, Holloway does not believe that QPR will be able to cause a major upset - and he has suggested that Burnley will win 3-1.

“I can't see Burnley slipping up now,” he said. “Burnley know it's all about winning and going through the right processes. Their process is perfect in every department of their play. They've got goals and they are brilliantly well organised without the ball. Burnley have the full package, including the right mentality - they don't get too emotional.

“QPR have only won four games away from home all season and they must have their eyes on next season.”

Burnley go into the match on a fantastic run of form, after going unbeaten in their last 21 Championship matches.

QPR, meanwhile, have not won any of their last four games and they have little to play for.

The R’s are firmly lodged in mid-table, and manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has already suggested that the rest of the season will be used as preparation to ensure that his side is more successful next term.
