Queens Park Rangers News

Queens Park Rangers have not enjoyed the best of seasons following their relegation from the Premier League and currently 11 points off of the Playoff places, the Hoops look very unlikely to earn promotion back into the top flight this season.

Nonetheless, manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has steadied the ship at QPR in recent times and the Hoops are currently on a five match unbeaten run in the Championship.

That said though, QPR have had too many draws and Hasselbaink will most certainly be keen on his side claiming the three points when a struggling Fulham side pay a visit to Loftus Road this weekend.

Injury Doubts: Alejandro Faurlin, Conor Washington, Armand Traore

Queens Park Rangers Probable Lineup: Smithies; Konchesky, Onuoha, Perch, Hall; Phillips, Luongo, Hoilett, Tozser; Polter, El Khayati

Fulham News

Fulham earned a huge point against Derby County last weekend in their fight against relegation but the fact of the matter remains that the Cottagers are currently on a run of six matches without a single victory and need three points from somewhere in order to ease their relegation fears.

Manager Slaviša Jokanović will be more than aware of this fact but with a clash against an in-form Queens Park Rangers coming up next away from home, his side certainly have an uphill task ahead of them in order to claim the three points this weekend.

Injury Doubts: Tim Ream, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Cauley Woodrow, Marcus Bettinelli

Fulham Probable Lineup: Lonergan; Garbutt, Amorebieta, Burn, Richards; Ince, Cairney, Christensen, O’Hara; McCormack, Dembele

Prediction

Fulham have claimed seven victories in their last eight encounters against Queens Park Rangers but the circumstances heading into Saturday’s game are certainly a lot different.

QPR are in fine form at the moment while Fulham seem to be unable to buy a win and as a result, one should suspect the Hoops to claim the three points this weekend.

Queens Park Rangers 3 – 1 Fulham
