Middlesbrough next to visit fortress Loftus Road to face QPR

| 08.09.2010

QPR have been dominant at home in the Championship this season and will be optimistic of continuing this record against another of the early-season title favourites in Middlesbrough.

Neil Warnock’s team have won both of their league outings at Loftus Road without conceding a goal and are evens to claim another three points against a Middlesbrough team still seeking a first away victory.

QPR’s strong form has left them top of the division with Warnock claiming the manager of the month award for August for his team’s unbeaten start.

Adel Tarrabt also scooped the player of the month accolade for his two goals this season and he is 6/1 to open the scoring against Middlesbrough.

Although Nottingham Forest are another team still unbeaten at home they are still looking for their first win at the City Ground, something they will be eager to gain against high-flying Millwall.

Forest are 6/5 to win and can take confidence from the fact that they have triumphed in their last two home fixtures with Millwall.

Furthermore, Millwall suffered their only league defeat of the season so far on the road when losing 3-1 at Leeds, although they have scored in all of their games in all competitions during the campaign.

Meanwhile, history shows that Ipswich could keep up their strong start by gaining a result at Portsmouth.

They have not been defeated at Portsmouth in their last 13 visits, winning 1-0 on five occasions.

Ipswich are 6/4 to maintain their 100 per cent winning start away from home and 7/1 to do so by a 1-0 scoreline.

The last three fixtures between the two at Portsmouth have ended all-square, with the draw 23/10.

QPR’s impressive start to the season has left them 4/1 to win the Championship this season. See the whole Championship winners market.
