Championship play-off betting preview: QPR v Wigan
QPR host Wigan tonight in a winner-takes-all Championship play-off second leg.
After a 0-0 draw in the first leg, the tie has essentially been reduced to a one-off contest for a place in the Wembley final, with the victors of that promoted to the Premier League.
QPR have no new major injury concerns since the initial encounter, while defender Clint Hill has not been punished retrospectively for an elbow incident involving Wigan’s Rob Kiernan.
The Latics could be without top scorer Nick Powell, who is a major doubt, while midfielders Ben Watson and Chris McCann are out for the season.
