Recent respective form guides

QPR have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. Rangers have conceded a disappointing 6 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Watford's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Hornets have hit 6 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Q.P.R.'s 49 points from 35 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Watford see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 44 points from their 36 games played so far,
