  • Fulham vs QPR Betting Preview

    Fulham vs QPR is a local derby that rarely gets played. In the 109 years since they first met, thereís been just 30 further fixtures. Thatís probably been good for QPR, as in recent years Fulham have been a bit of a bogey side. In the last 8 meetings the Rs have only come away with a win once (Adel Taarabt bagging a brace in a 2-1 victory back in 2012), and the aggregate score for those matches was 16-4 in favour of Fulham.

    All that is in the past now, so letís look to the match itself. QPR can hardly class themselves in form at the moment, but they still sit comfortably above Fulham, albeit having played a game more. In spite of some disappointing results, like the draw against Blackburn and late loss to Forest, leaving the Cottage with 3 points would take the Rs third in the table before the weekend fixtures kick off.

    As the top scorers in the league QPR know they can cause teams problems, and a Fulham defence without a clean sheet in the Championship this season is there for the taking. Unfortunately, as has been mentioned repeatedly over the course of the season so far, QPRís main issue is also defence, and they themselves only have a single clean sheet.

    Further advantage for QPR can be found in having lost in the last round of the Capital One Cup. That left them to train, rest and work on the training pitch, whereas Fulham were in action on Tuesday against Stoke. That extra match time could have an impact so hopefully QPR can find an edge against already weary legs.

    In team news, Leroy Fer is in line to make his comeback following the knee injury he picked up in May (which also put paid to a move to Sunderland in the summer). Ferís energy should be a welcome boost to the QPR midfield, and having been out for so long heís relishing his first match in the Championship, ďIt is going to be a long, hard season but if we stick together we can help each other out, and be successful.Ē

    Well said Leroy.
