Fulham manager Martin Jol believes that Queens Park Rangers can move out of the relegation zone by the end of the season.

Fulham manager Martin Jol believes that Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp can pull the club out of danger by the end of the season.

The West London outfit are seven points away from safety in the Premier League table heading into tonight's fixture against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

"I have no preference [who goes down]," ITV Sport quotes Jol as saying. "But I won't say I would like them to go down because I like Harry Redknapp. He's a fantastic man and good manager.

"At the end the league won't lie. They will fight to the end because there's still 24 points [to play for] and that's a lot. If QPR manage to win four or five, they still have a chance to stay up."

Meanwhile, the Cottagers are currently placed 10th in the table.
