Crystal Palace vs QPR – Prediction
(1-1) Draw, This is a game that the Rangers simply need to win to keep their Premier League Survival hopes alive. They have played well in their last couple of games against Spurs and Arsenal and a similar performance here might just get them a second result away from home this season.
It’s been a while since Palace won at Selhurst Park so Pardew will desperate get back to winning ways at home. We see the Rangers getting something from this game with Charlie Austin and Glen Murray scoring for their respective clubs.
Despite their good run of games they still haven’t managed to win a game at Selhurst Park since their 2-1 win over Spurs on the 10th of January.
Palace’s home form has been pretty dire all season managing to pick up just 12 points. In fact they are the only team in the Premier league that has better away record (18 points) than their home record.
Palace will be boosted by the return of Glen Murray from suspension but will miss the services of their captain Mile Jedinak after he was suspended by the FA for violent conduct. Another absentee for Palace will be midfielder Jordan Mutch who is out with an injury.
Palace can take relief in the fact that Marouane Chamakh and Yaya Sanogo are fit and back in training and could play a part in this week match.
