QPR remain the only team in England to have not won a game this season, as they find themselves rock-bottom going into the west London derby against Fulham on Saturday.

The R's have been much-improved since the arrival of Harry Redknapp, and remain unbeaten under the former Tottenham manager, but desperately need a win to avoid going even further behind their relegation rivals.

Fulham will look to make it back-to-back wins after beating Newcastle on Monday night, recording their first win in a month.


KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm



QPR 0 Fulham 1 (Pogrebnyak), Premier League, February 2012

Fulham 6 (Johnson 3, Murphy, Dempsey, Zamora) QPR 0, Premier League, October 2011

Fulham 2 (Saha, Clark) QPR 0, Division One (now Championship), March 2001



The R's have kept just two clean sheets all season.

Fulham are unbeaten against QPR in six games (5 wins and 1 draw).

QPR are without a home win in their last seven games.

Fulham are looking for their first away win in six games.



Fulham recorded their first win of the season against QPR last season in emphatic style as they destroyed their west London rivals at Craven Cottage last October. A hat-trick from Andy Johnson, combined with goals from Danny Murphy, Clint Dempsey and Bobby Zamora made it a day to remember for the Whites, whilst QPR looked on in disbelief. The only positive for the Hoops on a dreadful day being the return of Jamie Mackie who returned for the first time since his double-leg break in January.



QPR to win: 2.52

Fulham to win: 3.05

Draw: 3.5
