- QPR have drawn back-to-back matches in the Championship 
- Coventry have drawn a Championship-high five games this season 
- Recommended bet: Draw

Queens Park Rangers and Coventry are both languishing in the bottom half of the Championship standings on eight points heading into their meeting at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Wins have been hard to come by for both, with QPR triumphing in just two of their nine matches across all competitions to date, while Coventry have registered just one victory all season.

Team news

QPR head coach Gareth Ainsworth has no fresh injury concerns to contend with, although defender Jimmy Dunne is likely to miss out once again. He is yet to feature this season due to a shoulder injury.

Experienced midfielder Jack Colback will serve the final match of his three-game suspension following his sending off against former club Sunderland earlier this month.

Milan van Ewijk, Ben Sheaf, Fabio Tavares and Callum O'Hare missed Coventry's draw with Huddersfield on Monday and all four are likely to remain on the treatment table for this trip to West London.

The stats

QPR have failed to win any of their last eight Championship home fixtures since beating Watford in March, while that 1-0 success is also their only league victory at Loftus Road in 18 games, a run that stretches back almost a calendar year.

The Rs have drawn their last two matches, including sharing the spoils in their most recent home fixture against Swansea.

No team has drawn as many matches in the Championship this season as Coventry, with all five of their stalemates coming across their last six games.

These two sides have both found wins hard to come by, with QPR registering two and Coventry only one across a combined 18 matches in all competitions this season. 

Draws have been a familiar theme for Mark Robins' Coventry of late

While many experts were tipping QPR to struggle this season, Coventry's slow start is perhaps more of a surprise given Mark Robins' team reached the Championship play-off Final last term.

Draws have been the main issue for the Sky Blues, who have only lost two of their eight league matches to date, with their latest stalemate coming when they conceded a stoppage-time equaliser to Huddersfield on Monday.

That late setback will have frustrated Robins, who has seen his side lead in five games this season, but only one of those has ended in victory.

There could be more frustration for Robins and co on Saturday, as although QPR's home record is poor, they have shown resilience in their last two matches to grind out a point.

A third-straight share of the spoils could be on the cards for the hosts this weekend, while it would be a sixth draw in seven for Coventry.
