QPR's leading scorer Charlie Austin

QPR’s leading scorer Charlie Austin

QPR have lost 11 out of the 11 away games this season. Things have gotten worse for the club in the past week after the sudden resignation of Harry Redknapp from the managerial post.

QPR have still not appointed a replacement for Harry and they really think about hiring someone quick because at the moment they look hopeless.  QPR come into this match after losing to Southampton 1-0 on Sunday.

Things are only getting worse for QPR as they will be without the inform Charlie Austin for the clash against Sunderland. Both Richard Dunne and Nedum Onuoha will be out for some time.

QPR could move out of the relegation zone with a win here but they have beaten Sunderland (home) only once in 42 years.

QPR are currently third in the list of teams having the worst away form in a season (Behind United with 16 losses and Liverpool at 13 losses).

QPR’s top scorer Charlie Austin has scored 13 goals in the league so far. No one else has scored more than 3 goals this season.


Jermaine Defoe

The black cats come into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw vs Sunderland on Saturday. Sunderland has been in good form for the past 3-4 matches and that has seen them move away from the relegation battle.

Since the arrival of Jermaine Defoe from the US the team has looked different at least this is what Sunderland boss Gus Poyet believes. Defoe has so far struck two goals in three matches since his return to English football.

Sunderland has drawn half the games so far this season (12). A win for the black cats will help them put some space between themselves and the relegation battle.

Striker Connor Wickham is set to return for the club after recovering from his calf injury. However Sunderland will still be missing both Lee Cattermole and Jack Rodwell.

Past Meeting

The last time these two teams met this season QPR won the match 1-0 with a first half injury time goal from who else? Charlie Austin.


Sunderland vs QPR – Draw – This is going to be a boring game and I can see this match ending in a goalless stalemate.
