QPR are currently winning the race to join leaders Leicester City in the automatic promotion spots at the end of the season, overtaking Burnley a fortnight ago before extending their lead with a 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.
The gap between the two sides is now three points, and that would be doubled if QPR manage a fourth consecutive home win in Saturday's early kickoff.
No Championship side have picked up more points in front of their own fans than QPR this season, with their only home league defeat coming at the hands of Leicester over the festive period.
They also have the best defensive record both at home and overall, conceding just six times at Loftus Road in 14 league games.
However, their goals for tally is significantly lower than those around them in the table, with 33 goals from their 27 games marking the worst record in the top seven.
To further exacerbate their scoring problems, Charlie Austin is a doubt after being forced off during the win over Bolton on Tuesday, although Redknapp is hopeful of bringing in a couple of new faces before Friday's transfer deadline.
Burnley are in danger of being cut adrift from the top two if they lose this match having been held to draws by Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton & Hove Albion in their last two outings.
Failure to win again on Saturday could see them drop down to fourth depending on Derby County's result against Birmingham City, but their playoff spot for this season looks all but guaranteed already.
That should allow Sean Dyche's men to go all out for this game and, while their last two matches have ended in disappointing results, he will be reminding his side that they have only lost once in their last 10 league outings.
The Clarets have the third-best away record in the Championship this season, but their 2-1 victory over Yeovil Town earlier this month was the first time that they had picked up maximum points on their travels since October.

QPR: Green; Traore, Dunne, Hill, Assou-Ekotto; Henry, Carroll; Phillips, O'Neil, Kranjcar; Austin
