Sports Mole looks ahead to this Saturday's Premier League clash between Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland.

Back-to-back victories are on offer for Queens Park Rangers when they host Sunderland at Loftus Road this Saturday.

The West London outfit, who are in danger of dropping into the Championship due to their position at the bottom of the Premier League table, managed to snatch all three points from manager Harry Redknapp's former club Southampton last weekend courtesy of a 2-1 win.

While QPR are four points away from safety, Saturday's opponents Sunderland have the chance to move up one spot to 13th with a victory following a run that has consisted of three defeats and two draws in their last five matches.

The last time these two sides came together was in November at the Stadium of Light, where they played out a goalless draw, but QPR have not a result from the Black Cats in their three meetings so far.

QPR could line up with an attacking three of Jay Bothroyd, Loic Remy and David Hoilett, while Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill may opt for a forward partnership of Steven Fletcher and Danny Graham.
