QPR and Hull will be out to start 2016 with a bang when they clash at Loftus Road later this evening, with both sides looking to push on with their Championship run in January.
The Hoops, currently 15th in the table are waiting for their first win under new manager, Jimmy Floyds Hasselbaink. The former Chelsea forward has now presided over four draws and a defeat since moving from Burton Albion.
Last time out they drew with Huddersfield with Sebastian Polter’s 80 minute strike cancelled out by an even later effort from Nahki Wells as the side is finding difficulty in turning draws into wins.
The shared spoils left Hasselbaink frustrated and with 10 goal striker Charlie Austin sidelined once again through injury those frustrations are set to continue. The forward, linked with moves to Newcastle and Crystal Palace, is sidelined with a hamstring injury and will be out until early January.
Despite his slow start, Hasselbaink feels his side can get out of their rut by working hard telling reporters after the draw with the Terriers, “We are in that corner a little bit where we need to get out of it by working together and working hard. It is a corner only we can get out of and not feel sorry for ourselves. We need to move on.”
Hull meanwhile have lost two of their last three games to slip five points behind leaders Middlesbrough.
Last time out they went down 1-0 away to Preston, their 2nd defeat to teams in the bottom half of the table in succession. What will worry Steve Bruce is that both sides managed to keep his side blank.
Bruce has revealed that Isaac Hayden will return to his parent club, Arsenal after the clash with QPR. The starlet has made just 3 league starts for the club.
The two sides drew 1-1 when they met in September while last season, in the Premier League, Hull won 1-0 at Loftus Road.
It should be an interesting match up with both these sides looking to return to the Premier League. QPR will have to start winning their home games if they are to have any chance of pushing towards the playoff places, although the omens do not look good with bookmakers making the Hoops 11/5 underdogs.
Make sure you tune in to Bet365 and take in the action – it should provide the perfect tonic to a bumper coupon on Saturday.
