Huddersfield Town travel to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to face Queens Park Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship, looking to complete the double over the side.

The match will kick off at 3pm on Saturday 13 March 2021.

The last time the two sides faced off, Town came away with a 2-0 win. Goals from Harry Toffolo and Josh Koroma vaulted the Terriers to the win.

THE OPPPOSITION

QPR currently sit 12th in the Sky Bet Championship table with 46 points, however, winning their game in hand could see them jump to 10th!

Interestingly so far this year they have won 12 games, drawn 10 and lost 12.

So far this season, Mark Warburton’s side has a tendency of attacking down the right wing; statistically this is where they’ve been the most effective.

At the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, the Rs have won seven of their 17 games and have picked up 25 points.

FORM GUIDE

Queens Park Rangers come into the game in great form. They have cruised to eight victories in their last 12 games.

In their last outings they beat both Bristol City and Wycombe Wanderers.

Within this run of results QPR have kept clean sheets in half of their games, tallying to a total of six.

ONES TO WATCH

Charlie Austin

Joining on a loan from West Brom, the attacker acts as a target man – perfect for a side that is most lethal attacking from the wings.

He has started every game since arriving, scoring five goals and playing 88% of potential minutes, establishing himself quickly as their go-to striker. He averages just under three shots a game.

Robert Dickie

Dickie has been a consistently solid figure of The R’s defence this season. The centre-back has also contributed on the attacking side, scoring two goal and contributing with an assist.

The defender also ranks top 4 four in almost every defensive stat for the squad, cementing his importance to the team.

Ilias Chair

The Belgian is QPR’s main goal contributor with seven goals and an assist.

Chair leads his side in key passes per game with 1.7 and is performing at a high level playing as a central-attacking-midfielder. Scoring in their last two games, the midfielder is in a good run of form.

Match Reports

REPORT: QPR 0–1 TOWN

13 March 2021

A second-half strike from Juninho Bacuna saw Huddersfield Town record a first away victory of the calendar year following a 1-0 win against Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The sides were separated by the midfielder’s 56th minute effort which was enough for the Terriers’ first three points on the road since October.

Eight days on from the draw with Cardiff City last time out, Carlos Corberán made two changes to the side that started that Friday evening clash, for the meeting with the Rs.

Jonathan Hogg made his return from a groin injury, coming back into the XI alongside Isaac Mbenza for the game in the capital.

It was the Terriers who made the better start at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, as Lewis O’Brien forced a diving save out of Seny Dieng before Isaac Mbenza’s drilled effort from the edge of the area narrowly evaded the far post.

Those chances, which both came inside the opening five minutes of the encounter, was just the first of what was turning out to be an early onslaught for Town.

Next it was Naby Sarr who towered highest to flick a header wide of the goal, with his centre-back partner Richard Keogh heading wide on the other side of a well-contested period of play in West London.

Just after the half-hour mark, Ryan Schofield was tested for the first time in the Town goal. The ‘keeper had to get down to deny Todd Kane before kicking a potential rebound away from QPR’s right-wing-back.

Moments later, a driving run from Keogh had Town on the attack again. The Terriers’ no.15 powered forward before playing in Juninho Bacuna who fired over on his left foot.

After the break, Town made the most of their first opportunity to take the lead in the capital. Pipa, who was now operating from the left, found Bacuna on the edge of the box who ran onto the Spaniard’s outside-of-the-foot pass and planted an arrowing strike past the ‘keeper to put the Terriers ahead on 55 minutes.

Bacuna nearly had a second in quick succession soon after, curling a free-kick from around 20 yards out just wide of the post.

Dieng then had to get down to his right to stop substitute Duane Holmes’ shot creeping inside his near post before Pipa tried his luck and curled over as Town continued to step up the search for a second.

Fellow second-half substitute Yaya Sanogo also went close to his strike going in as the game entered six minutes of stoppage time.

The forward, who was going in search of his first Terriers goal, placed wide of the near post from inside the box having been found by a ball from the left wing.

That turned out to be Town’s last foray forward as Corberán’s side looked to close out the encounter and take all three points.

They did that successfully with Schofield comfortably keeping out Rob Dickie’s long-range effort in the closing moments, with the final whistle blowing soon after to confirm a second successive clean sheet and all three points for Town, in West London.

Next up for the Terriers is another road trip, this time to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday 17 March 2021; 7.45pm kick-off.
