QPR's Jamie Mackie backs his side to make the most of their home advantage and beat Chelsea on Saturday.

Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie has stated his belief that his side can beat Chelsea when the two meet on Saturday.

QPR have made a poor start to the season, picking up just one point from their opening three games, whereas Chelsea could not have made a better start, winning all three of their games.

However, Mackie believes that his side can make the most of their home advantage to end Chelsea's perfect record and spring a shock win over the European champions.

"Chelsea are a very good side and they've made a decent start to the season," he told QPR's official website.

"They've had quite a bit of upheaval themselves in terms of changes to the playing personnel, but there's no doubt that they've added great quality to their ranks. The likes of [Eden] Hazard and co. seem to have settled in really quickly, but it's about what we do on Saturday.

"We know we can beat the best here at Loftus Road, as we proved last season, and it's up to us to rediscover that winning mentality on Saturday. We can turn over the best this league has to offer on our own patch, so I've got every confidence."

The match will be the first time the two sides have met since John Terry was found not guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, although it is not clear yet whether they will shake hands before the match.
