Rangers are in desperate need of a confidence boost after going nine games without a win – a run that stretches back to the end of November.

And when it comes to FA Cup fixtures this weekend there may not be one as feisty as this west London derby.

Fulham themselves are in a Premier League relegation battle and have drawn their last four straight games. In fact, you have to go back to the start of November for the last time Scott Parker’s team won a match.

And so one side will certainly come out of this game in high spirits, with the FA scrapping replays in this season’s competition.

QPR v Fulham team news

QPR: Mark Warburton should have a largely fresh squad for this clash following the postponement of their tie with Luton.

However, the boss will have to wait for Covid-19 testing to be complete before he can select his XI. Having experimented with five at the back against Norwich last time out, Warburton could deploy a similar set-up here.

Fulham: Fulham are confident their clash with QPR will go ahead despite an outbreak of Covid-19 among the playing squad and staff.

The boss is likely to switch his side around from the 0-0 draw with Southampton on Boxing Day, with plenty of fringe players expected to get a game so long as they submit a negative Covid result in testing. 

Our prediction: QPR v Fulham

Neither team is in good form heading into this tie but QPR will see the game as an opportunity to get one over their rivals, earn a morale boost and shine some light on what has been a bleak season so far.

Fulham really don’t need the FA Cup ‘distraction’ right now but Parker is desperate for a win to boost spirits within his ranks.

This game could well come down to which players pass Covid tests and which don’t. It should be a tight encounter that may need extra time or even penalties to produce a victor.

Our prediction: QPR 0-0 Fulham (QPR win on penalties)
