On Thursday, Bristol City will play QPR at Ashton Gate in the EFL Championship, with both teams having had different seasons thus far. Bristol City is presently in 18th place in the Premier League, eight points clear of relegation.
Nigel Pearson’s team has had a shaky run of late. Winning only two of their past five games. With a win over QPR, they will try to turn things around.
QPR, on the other hand, has struggled recently and will be coming off two straight defeats. The team of Mark Warburton is presently in seventh place in the league, six points behind the top four. They’ll try to get back on track against Bristol on Thursday.
Morris’ equaliser came as a surprise, but Blackburn remained the more dangerous side following the restart and the outstanding display. Brereton Diaz was ultimately discovered in space by John Buckley, and he made no mistakes.
Brereton Diaz has four more league goals than the whole Barnsley team, and replacement Sam Gallagher produced a brilliant low save from Collins in injury time before Styles fired over the crossbar.
What could be the possible outcome to the QPR game?
Both teams will be eager to win in order to move up the standings, which should make for an intriguing encounter.
Bristol City has won four of their previous five encounters against QPR, while QPR has won only one.
In the opposite encounter in September, Bristol City came out on top 2-1. After Chris Martin’s first-half opening was cancelled out by Sam McCallum, Nakhi Wells’ stoppage-time goal was enough to secure the victory.
Andy King is expected to return to the team after recovering from a hamstring injury. Injuries to Nathan Baker and Joe Williams will keep them out of the game.
Neither team has been in great form recently, and that should be evident in the game on Thursday. QPR, on the other hand, should have enough talent to take all three points.
