The Hoops sit 18th in the Premier League going into this game and a 3-2 win at Stoke City on 19 November was the last time that QPR landed three points in the top flight. Nine games have passed since then and Neil Warnock has been replaced by Mark Hughes.
How the Welshman would love to enjoy a winning start at Loftus Road, although he did see a strong XI beat MK Dons in an FA Cup replay on Tuesday night, with a similar set of players set to be selected for the clash against the Latics.
The bookies can’t decide whether or not Rangers will win this match and you can get even money (bet365 £200 free bets) about a home win against a Wigan side that performed quite impressively when losing 1-0 to Manchester City on Monday.
Roberto Martinez won’t be panicking that his team are rock bottom of the Premier League, a position that they occupied for large parts of last season before finally working their way out of the relegation zone.
The visitors are 3/1 (Ladbrokes bookmaker) to complete a rare league double over QPR, having beaten them at the DW Stadium earlier this term. However, the goals are really starting to dry up for Wigan and they are heavily reliant on Hugo Rodallega to find the net.
Mark Hughes will want a solid display from his team, starting with lots of strength at the back and the best bets could be on the correct score market where QPR are 7/1 and 8/1 to win by 1-0 and 2-0 scorelines respectively with Ladbrokes.
