Another familiar result for QPR
Mark Hughes has a job on his hands at QPR. They have a squad made up of many players that would struggle to get into Championship teams. They have their flair players with Wright-Phillips and Taarabt and they probably are not the right guys to get you out of a relegation scrap.
Mark Hughes may have been encouraged by the teams display against Newcastle but to me they looked like a sinking ship. He will need to bring in some new faces and Samba would be a great signing to help a leaky defence.
The QPR win is 4/5, the draw is 23/10 and the MK Dons win is 14/5. MK Dons can knock the ball around and they play good football for a League One side. QPR's focus has to be on avoiding the drop in the league and they may not play their first team.
It would be a good chance for the new manager to experiment with his squad players and the younger generation, see if they can help pull the club out of trouble. MK could be a good betat 2/1 draw no bet and if I was having a punt on the match, MK or the draw looks a good bet at 17/20.
There is no doubt that QPR have a better squad but I think that MK may just want it that bit more. Rangers do not need to progress for the money.
The last thing that QPR need is a cup run. MK will attack Rangers on the break and they have pace on the wings. Both teams to score is only 7/10 and I would not be backing the West London club to keep a clean sheet at 11/8.
MK Dons' have the former Brentford favourite Charlie McDonald playing in attack. He has a knack of scoring goals and he is 9/1 to score anytime. The most recognisable name on their team sheet is Luke Chadwick, the former Man United trainee is one of their best players and he has big game experience.
QPR have looked toothless upfront of late and Newcastle kept a clean sheet on Sunday. An MK Dons clean sheet is 16/5 and Rangers have been poor at home this season.
Over and Under 2.5 goals is 10/11 the pair, I would rather side with the unders, the likes of Mackie, Bothroyd, Helguson and Tommy Smith will not strike fear into any on the MK defence. They are playing for their futures and they could well find themselves playing against the likes of MK Dons, week in and week out.
Mark Hughes has a tough job on his hands to turn around a club that is infiltrated with Championship players. Wright-Phillips is the star man and he has blown hot and cold. He is 9/1 to open the scoring and if puts in a good performance it could lift the side.
If you think that QPR have brought in the wrong players come the end of the transfer window and can still get 7/1 for the club to finish bottom of the Premier League at the end of the season, it looks a punt. They have the resources to get out of trouble but the club must spend wisely.
