Championship Betting Tips: Coventry v QPR

Coventry City host Queens Park Rangers in the Championship’s Friday night match.

Newly-promoted Coventry didn’t get the return to the Championship they were looking for last weekend with a 2-1 defeat away at Bristol City. 

 

However, Mark Robins’ men had their fair share of opportunities at Ashton Gate and certainly didn’t look out of place back in the second tier and will have been disappointed to squander a point at a late corner as Robins centre-half Tomas Kalas was left free to head home.

 

Striker Matt Godden continued as he left off in League One last year, scoring a second-half equaliser for the Sky Blues and looking lively as he found himself with a number of shooting opportunities, while Callum O’Hare was unlucky to be denied by the woodwork. 

 

Expect Robins to go with the same tactics and personnel on this occasion, with a back three, Ryan Giles and Josh Pask operating as wingbacks. 

 

QPR, meanwhile, showed much-needed improvement defensively in their opening fixture last weekend, keeping out favourites Nottingham Forest and recording a well-deserved 2-0 win, with summer signing Lyndon Dykes opening the scoring from the penalty spot - a much-needed early contribution after losing last season’s key men Eberechi Eze and Jordan Hugill.

 

Geoff Cameron and Tom Carroll looked a robust and solid double-pivot for QPR, with Yoann Barbet impressing alongside Robert Dickie in defence. Clean sheets were few and far between last season but it looks as that’s something they’ve looked to address in the summer.

 

Paddy Power have QPR striker Lyndon Dykes well down in the goalscorer markets here, down at 15/2 to score first and 7/2 to score anytime. That’s something to consider after he got off the mark on his debut last week, and is evidently their designated penalty taker as he provides the focal point of their attack. 

 

We recommend backing QPR to win to nil again here. Mark Warburton’s men looked organised as they kept out Nottingham Forest’s attack last time out and will likely deploy a similar gameplan here. That’s priced at 4/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.

    Kyle McFadzean gives Coventry victory over QPR in Championship thriller

    Coventry marked their first home game back in the Championship with a thrilling 3-2 victory over QPR at St Andrew’s.

    Kyle McFadzean grabbed a late winner to atone for giving away a first-half penalty which had given QPR the lead.

    Lyndon Dykes’ spot-kick for the visitors was cancelled out by Matt Godden shortly before the break.

    Callum O’Hare then put the hosts ahead in the second half and, after Yoann Barbet had made it 2-2, McFadzean rose highest to produce a late winner.

    Rangers were the more assertive side in the first half but failed to make their possession count until Dykes gave them the lead four minutes before the break.

    The penalty was awarded after a challenge from Coventry skipper McFadzean, who was beaten to a loose ball in the area by Bright Osayi-Samuel.

    Dykes subsequently slammed the penalty high and hard, giving Marko Marosi no chance.

    The home side responded immediately however, with an equaliser from Godden on the stroke of half-time.

    Rangers lost concentration and excellent work from Ryan Giles down the left saw the on-loan Wolves wing-back stand up a beautiful cross from the byline, allowing Godden to take his time and head in at the far post.

    Joe Lumley in the QPR goal will feel he could have done better with the effort, but it had just enough power to sneak over the line.

    The goal seemed to give the hosts a huge confidence boost and they took the lead for the first time this campaign through O’Hare’s strike five minutes after the break.

    Fankaty Dabo jinxed wonderfully down Coventry’s right and hit a low cross into the box.

    An incoming O’Hare managed to pick up the deflected cross, exquisitely getting the ball under control and hitting low and hard past Lumley.

    However, the visitors managed to get back on level terms after 76 minutes. Coventry failed to clear an Ilias Chair corner, allowing Barbet to bring the ball down and blast a vicious left-footed finish into the roof of Coventry’s net to make it 2-2.

    Coventry refused to lie down, however and restored their lead less than 10 minutes later.

    The impressive Gustavo Hamer, a summer signing from Dutch side PEC Zwolle, put an out-swinging corner into the QPR box which was met by McFadzean, who rose above everyone else to plant a header into the net to make amends for giving away the penalty which led to the opener.
