Burnley face tough ask to break away win voodoo at leaders QPR

| 29.10.2010

Despite failing to win an away game in the Championship this season Burnley are still just one place outside of the play-off places, but their poor form on their travels is likely to be pounced upon by table toppers QPR.

Burnley have proved tough to beat on the road, drawing four of their seven games, and their past record at Loftus Road will give them confidence of beating QPR to end their winless sequence.

QPR have failed to win their past three home showdowns with Burnley, with the home side 4/5 to take the three points.

Burnley are 7/2 to beat QPR and inflict a first league defeat on Neil Warnock’s men this season.

At the opposite end of the standings, Tony Mowbray has the chance to lift Middlesbrough out of the relegation places in his first game in charge with a victory over bottom of the table Bristol City.

Middlesbrough failed to beat Bristol City in either league fixture last season, but are 5/6 to take the three points at the Riverside this time.

Bristol City are 10/3 to beat Middlesbrough and give themselves a chance of moving out of the bottom three.

Middlesbrough have lost their last two Championship games 1-0 and a repeat against Bristol City is priced at 8/1.

Elsewhere, Reading host Doncaster with both sides knowing that a victory could seem them leap into the play-off places.

Reading do not concede many goals at home as they have let in just four in their six league games at the Madejski Stadium.

However, they have lost at home twice and Doncaster are 7/2 to claim victory.

Reading are likely to be buoyed by their 4-0 win at Burnley in their last league game and are 4/5 to beat Doncaster.

Reading have beaten Doncaster in nine of the last 11 meetings between the pair. See the full Reading vs Doncaster match betting odds market.
