QPR Promotion Challenge Crippled By Draws – A Curse They Share With Manchester United

 QPR Promotion Challenge Crippled By Draws   A Curse They Share With Manchester United

Queens Park Rangers started the season in sparkling form winning 8 of their first 10 games in the Championship, however in the last month or so this challenge has faltered.

However like Manchester United, Queens Park Rangers can both boast that they are unbeaten in the league so far this season. However despite this impressive record neither club currently occupies top spot in their respective leagues.

Normally you would expect a team unbeaten three months into a season to be racing away with the title but this unbeaten record takes attention away from disproportionate number of draws both sides have recorded this season.

Manchester United

Played 13

Drawn 7 (54%)

Queens Park Rangers

Played 17

Drawn 8 (47%)

So far this season QPR have drawn around half of their games this season dropping 16 points or the equivalent of 5 defeats in the process.

These draws have slowly chipped away at the early lead QPR took at the top of the Championship, allowing Cardiff to overhaul the London side in the league, after a start that made it seem as though Premiership football would be a certainty next season QPR risk their season fading away.

A run of 7 draws in 10 games is far from promotion form and although late equalisers such as those against Bristol City and Portsmouth may create a feel good factor after the match it should still remembered that the club dropped two points in the game.

As Queens Park Rangers face bottom of the table Preston on Saturday it will be imperative that they take advantage of Preston’s poor form and get their promotion challenge back on track.

    I think you are totally missing the point mate.We have been playing well all season and been a bit unlucky on some of the draws.Cardiff may be in front by a point but it will be ding dong for the season.They played badly against Swansea at home wheras we got a draw away.Five of our draws have been away the year so it is not as bad a picture as you paint.If you are a supporter of Rangers have faith,we are on the way to being champions this season,Cardiff will falter like they have in the past.

  2. Life time Rangers fan & Very happy.
