On Wednesday night, Queens Park Rangers welcome Cardiff City with the hope of picking up a victory that may put them in the automatic promotion spots in the Championship standings.
Similar to their hosts, Cardiff’s unbeaten run ended on Saturday, dropping the Bluebirds to the bottom place as they continue to consider their long-term course from the dugout.

Queens Park Rangers vs Cardiff City Tips and Prediction
The QPR hierarchy would not have anticipated that after just 14 Championship games, Wolverhampton Wanderers would be showing interest in Michael Beale, who had been granted his first senior position in the dugout in the summer.
Even though QPR lost at Luton Town on Saturday, the praise from other quarters emphasizes the work Beale is doing at Loftus Road.
Despite the loss, which snapped a five-match winning streak, QPR remains in fourth place in the standings, one point behind Burnley.
Five of the West London team’s seven victories have been decided by a single goal, despite the fact that they have not always been flawless. Before allowing the same number of goals in 72 minutes at Kenilworth Road last Saturday, they had also let up just three goals in six games.
Under interim manager Mark Hudson, Cardiff appeared to be on a similar upward trend until they suffered a home loss to bottom-dwelling Coventry City.
The Bluebirds had previously amassed seven points from three games since firing Steve Morison, which shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise given the volatile nature of the Championship.
Cardiff’s leadership may believe that they are not in any particular hurry to choose their next permanent manager because they are still five points above the relegation zone.
In order to offer himself the best opportunity of keeping his current position on a full-time basis, Hudson can ill-afford a second consecutive loss given that the journey to England’s capital comes before the all-Welsh match with Swansea City at the weekend.
Any outcome seems feasible given the ambiguity at both clubs in one way or another. However, we can only back QPR to carry on their recent success in front of their home fans, possibly winning this match by the odd goal in three.
