QPR v Tottenham, Saturday 17:30
Regardless of the fact that there are thirteen places in between the two sides, relegation threatened QPR go into their Saturday fixture against Spurs with the better run of form as Betfred offer long free bets and long odds on the hosts to triumph at Loftus Road.
The Hoops have earned victories over Arsenal, Liverpool and Swansea City, losing the other three of their last six outings.
This record makes the West London outfit the eighth strongest side in the English top flight in terms of recent performances while Tottenham sit some six places back in 14th, winning just one of their last six league matches, drawing three and losing two.
QPR will be looking to heap further woe upon Harry Redknapp’s men this weekend after the North London club were eliminated from the FA Cup, suffering a controversial semi-final demolition at the hands of Chelsea.
Morale will be low in the Tottenham camp as the side look to come back from a three-match run without a win while Rangers hope to hit them while they’re down.
To add further woe to the favourites chances, Spurs will be without Younes Kaboul this weekend after the Frenchman suffered a knee injury in the defeat to Norwich almost two weeks ago.
The side were also hit with the news that Niko Kranjcar will be out for the remainder of the season after failing to recover from his own knee problem.
QPR have an exceptionally cleaner bill of health heading into Saturday’s late fixture with Fitz Hall the only recent addition to the injury list as he struggles to maintain fitness.
Djibril Cissé could make his return to the starting line-up after enduring his second three-match suspension of the season, despite only arriving in January.
The French international would seem likely to partner Bobby Zamora up front in what presents an experienced attacking line capable of breaking down a vulnerable Tottenham defence.
Mark Hughes’ side can move into 16th with a win this weekend and with a very tough three final fixtures, will need to look upon every fixture as a chance for points.
