Burnley may still be firmly in the relegation zone but are much improved in recent weeks, with good draws against Newcastle and Manchester City and narrow defeats to Spurs and Liverpool.

Queens Park Rangers are also teetering on the brink with only two more points than Sean Dyche's team. In their most recent game Harry Redknapp’s side took a battering from League One team Sheffield United who progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 3-0 win.

Striker Danny Ings has scored three of Burnley’s five goals against QPR in their last few meetings. Could he be the good luck talisman that the team need this weekend and bring them that much needed win?

KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
