Lawro Predicts - QPR v Latics



Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturdays Premier League basement clash between Queens Park Rangers and Wigan Athletic at Loftus Road will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:

QPR v Wigan

The story at QPR at the moment is probably more off the field than on it right now because there is so much talk about all the transfer targets they are supposedly after.

I am pretty sure that by the end of January they will have two or three new faces at the very least and will be a different proposition.

And despite Rangers clearly needing a lot of work to strengthen their team, I think Mark Hughes will have them up for his first home league game in charge, although I do worry about where their goals are coming from.

Jay Bothroyd works hard up front but he is never going to be prolific and I think you would say the same about Heidar Helguson.

You can see Hughes is probably thinking about a few other people in his side too in that they are good players, who put in a shift, but are probably lacking a bit of real quality. That is what he has to address in the next couple of weeks.

Wigan, away from home, are quite capable of playing teams off the park for a while - but then they are just as capable of suddenly collapsing under pressure.

The Latics might have got something out of Monday's 1-0 defeat by Manchester City but that sort of sums them up - they are the sort of side where they all have to play well to win. When they don't, you sort of understand why teams sometimes turn them over.

Prediction: 2-1


I actually feel this game is nicely set up for a Latics win, all the pressure is on QPR, plus Mark Hughes isn't the manager he's built up to be, 1-2 Latics win
