Premier League Preview: QPR - Fulham

Bobby Zamora makes his first appearance against the Craven Cottage club since leaving in January as the hosts look to add to their haul of only 21 points this season

  PROBABLE LINEUPS
QPR


Kenny
Young, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Taiwo
Mackie, Barton, Buzsaky, Wright-Phillips
Zamora, Macheda
FULHAM


Stockdale
Kelly, Senderos, Hangeland, Riise
Etuhu, Murphy
Ruiz, Dempsey, Dembele
Pogrebnyak

Bobby Zamora is likely to start against the team he left in January with Djibril Cisse still serving a three-match suspension. He could be partnered by Federico Macheda, with Heidar Helguson coming back from a groin injury and DJ Campbell suffering from a hamstring ailment.

Fulham is likely to have an almost-full strength side for the short trip to Loftus Road, but Steve Sidwell is a doubt and could be replaced by Dickson Etuhu.

Martin Jol is likely to favor an attacking lineup and go with a combination of Bryan Ruiz, Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele behind either Pavel Pogrebnyak or Andrew Johnson up front.
