With Queens Park RangersChampionship fixtures coming out earlier today, we predict the results of their first six matches.

Leeds United (home) - Draw

Swansea manager Garry Monk

Queens Park Rangers’ match against Leeds look to be an intriguing clash, between two sides harbouring ambitions of challenging for the play offs. A draw looks the most likely result.

Cardiff City (away) - Win

Cardiff could be in danger of struggling next season, with a lot of change set to happen at the Welsh club over the summer. Playing them early should favour QPR.

Barnsley (away) - Draw

Barnsley will head into this match with QPR with momentum on their side. A point should be considered a welcome result for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men.

Preston North End (home) - Win

Preston North End manager Simon Grayson

QPR proved difficult to beat at Loftus Road towards the back end of last campaign, and they should feel confident of getting the three points against Preston.

Wigan Athletic (away) - Lose

This looks like a tough test for QPR, against a Wigan side who will be full of confidence of earning promotion last term.

Blackburn Rovers (home) - Win

This looks like another winnable home fixture for QPR.

Points: 11 from 18

11 points would represent a good points haul for QPR from their opening six games, and should put them in the thick of the promotion race.
