Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has predicted a stalemate when QPR travel to face Birmingham City this afternoon.

Both sides have struggled for form in the Championship this season, with the clash being touted as a six-pointer in a relegation battle, but the former Leeds man says that he can't separate the sides.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Prutton said: "This is a big, big game for QPR, who could get dragged right back into the relegation battle if they are beaten here. That didn't look at all likely a few weeks ago when they beat Wolves and Sheffield United on their own patch, but their form has deteriorated since.

"Birmingham just can't find a goal from anywhere, netting just 10 times in 21 games so far. There are five strikers in the division who have scored more! And because of that I'm going for a dour goalless draw."

Prutton's prediction: 0-0
