QPR host Fulham on Saturday looking to put right the 6-0 mauling at Craven Cottage earlier this season.

Queens Park Rangers will be looking to avenge the 6-0 humiliation dished out by Fulham earlier this season when they host their London neighbours at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Bobby Zamora was on target for the Cottagers that day, but he is likely to turn out for QPR this time around following his January move.

Zamora's strike partner Djibril Cisse is suspended for the R's after his red card against Wolverhampton Wanderers last month, while Heidar Helguson and DJ Campbell could also miss out through injury.

Andy Johnson, who scored a hat-trick in October's 6-0 rout, is expected to be sidelined for Fulham, but Pavel Pogrebnyak should start for the Cottagers after he scored on his debut in a 2-1 win over Stoke City two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, manager Martin Jol could add some steel to his midfield for the clash in the form of Dickson Etuhu.

Current form:

QPR: LLWDLL
Fulham: WLWDLW

Possible lineups:

QPR: Kenny; Onuoha, Traore, Taiwo, Ferdinand; Taarabt, Barton, Buzsaky, Wright-Phillips; Zamora, Smith

Fulham: Schwarzer; Kelly, JA Riise, Hangeland, Hughes; Davies, Murphy, Etuhu, Dembele; Ruiz, Pogrebnyak

Sports Mole says: 1-1
