Sports Mole looks ahead to the Championship fixture at Ewood Park between Blackburn Rovers and Queens Park Rangers.

With 18 points left to play for, realistically third-placed Queens Park Rangers need to win all of their remaining six matches if they are to stand any chance of catching Burnley, who are 10 points better off than the R's and currently occupy the second automatic promotion place.

Next up for Harry Redknapp's team is a trip to Ewood Park - the home of Blackburn Rovers - tomorrow evening.

Redknapp may make some changes for the clash, with Bobby Zamora in contention for a starting place up front, while Yossi Benayoun could come into the midfield.

As for hosting Blackburn, manager Gary Bowyer may keep faith with Rudy Gestede as a strike partner to Jordan Rhodes. David Dunn and Josh King could be reinstated to the starting lineup, having spent time among the substitutes recently.

The West Londoners have not won away at Blackburn since October 2000.
