QPR’s Championship title odds tumble after win number seven


QPR extended their lead at the top of the Championship for the third matchday running after a 3-0 victory over in-form Doncaster increased the gap to six points.

The statistics about the west Londoners incredible start to their first full season under Neil Warnock’s guidance are incredible, with seven wins from eight, seven clean sheets and two goals or more scored in every single match.

The Hoops didn’t even need runaway Championship top goalscorer Jamie Mackie, who had struck six times in his previous four appearances, to find the net, as Latvian defender Kaspars Gorkss stepped up with two second-half goals.

The latest Loftus Road success has seen QPR’s odds cut again from 7/4 to 6/4 to take the title and they can take encouragement from the fact that the last team to begin a season in the second tier so impressively were Wolves two years ago.

Mick McCarthy’s men built up such a strong advantage early on that they were able to escape unpunished for two months of relegation form after Christmas, and QPR are already in a position where they can afford two slip ups without relinquishing top spot.
