BOUNCING back from Saturday’s defeat at Charlton Athletic will be the aim of the game for QPR when they welcome local rivals Fulham to W12 tonight [Tuesday] (6.30pm kick-off).
The R’s were beaten 1-0 for the second time in seven days at the weekend and manager Mark Warburton says he and his squad are determined to get their run-in back on track.
Rangers bossed the second half against Charlton but were unable to make their dominance count and they will, of course, want to get their rewards against The Whites tonight.
Fulham, like QPR, come into tonight’s game having fallen to back-to-back defeats since the resumption of the season. Scott Parker’s team were beaten at Leeds United on Saturday and lost a home to Brentford on June 20th.

Head to head
QPR manager Mark Warburton: “We’ve let ourselves down – there’s no doubt about that. Points have been dropped and it’s about details – defending your goal, you can’t give away cheap set-pieces. And likewise at the other end, you have to be more clinical in the final third.”
Fulham manager Scott Parker: “The games comes thick and fast now – every three or four days – so there is no time for us to mope around. Tuesday is an opportunity to go to QPR and get a positive result, off the back of two disappointing results.”
Man in the middle
Gavin Ward will take charge of Tuesday evening’s London derby in W12.
So far this season he has overseen 26 matches - 21 of which have come in the Sky Bet Championship - where he has handed out 90 yellow cards and three reds.
Ward has refereed the R’s once so far this season, which was the home fixture against Hull City in December.
Ward will be supported by assistant referees Nigel Lugg and Graham Kane and fourth official Tim Robinson.
