QPR’s unbeaten start in jeopardy at talented Nottingham Forest

| 12.11.2010

QPR may still be unbeaten after 16 games of the Championship season, but there is every chance that this impressive run will come to an end against under-achieving Nottingham Forest.

Forest are down in 11th in the standings, with a lack of goals one of their biggest problems.

However, they are still unbeaten at the City Ground and are 8/5 to beat QPR to potentially jump into the play-off places.

Furthermore, Forest won their home game with QPR 5-0 in the Championship last season as Rob Earnshaw helped himself to a double.

The Welsh international is 11/2 to open the scoring against the team with the best away defensive record in the division.

QPR are 7/4 to beat Nottingham Forest, with the draw available at 11/5.

There are also a number of teams in the Championship looking to make ground into the promotion picture, with Leicester, Portsmouth and Doncaster all having play-off ambitions.

The last four meetings between Leicester and Derby have yielded just four goals, with the hosts striking just one of these.

Leicester are 11/10 to beat Derby for the first time in seven games and continue the improvement made under new boss Sven Goran Eriksson.

Derby currently lie in the play-off positions in fourth in the table after winning five of their last six league games and another victory over Leicester, which is priced at 5/2, would end Eriksson’s three-game unbeaten streak.

Portsmouth have improved markedly after a poor start to the season and could represent a solid home bet at home to Doncaster.

They are 1/1 to beat Doncaster, who have been massively inconsistent of late, trading wins, losses and draws.

Doncaster are 11/4 to take the three points from Portsmouth in what is the first game between the pair since 1983. See the full Portsmouth vs Doncaster match betting odds market.
