BHAFC v QPRFC (19/4/16) | Preview

A huge game on Tuesday night on the south coast, where the result could ultimately determine where the Seagulls might finish this season; they take on a QPR side who have nothing but pride to play for as the season draws to a close.

QPR News;

Cole Kpekawa looks set to miss the trip south, however Junior Hoilett and Conor Washington are set to return to the Rangers 18. Since the departure of leading goal scorer Charlie Austin, the Hoops have struggled to find the net, with central midfielder Tjaronn Chery their leading scorer with 10. January signing Washington, brought in to replace Austin, has yet to score a league goal in over 500 minutes of action.

FACT; Have only lost 3 times since the beginning of Febuary (5W, 5D, 3L)

Brighton News;

Chris Hughton has no new injury concerns other than long term absentees Solly March and Uwe Hunemeier, while Bobby Zamora is still out with a hip injury. Tomer Hemed scored a hat-trick in the previous game to take this seasons tally to 16 goals.

FACT; Have won 10 of their last 15 games (10W, 4D, 1L)

Earlier In The Season: QPRFC [2]-[2] BHAFC (15/12/16);

A pulsating game earlier in the season between the 2 sides. Quick-fire goals from Dale Stephens and on-loan man Rajiv van La Parra were cancelled out by a double from Charlie Austin. Lewis Dunk saw red in between the Austin goals, while Junior Hoilett hit the post in the 95th minute to nearly end Brighton’s unbeaten run.

H-2-H;

Brighton have won 4 of the 11 meetings between the 2 sides, and haven’t lost to QPR in 6 games (2W, 4D). QPR’s last win at Brighton was back in September 2004. Brighton have scored in every game but 3 (the 3 0-0 draws) so we are sure to see a Albion goal.
