QPR vs Burnley – Premier League preview and team news

Victory for either Queens Park Rangers or Burnley when the meet in a potential six-pointer at Loftus Road will be enough to lift them out of the bottom three.

Recent home results have been very good for the West London club, and the win over the other newly-promoted side Leicester City has the potential to be key to the outcome of their season, as do the goals of their match-winner that day, Charlie Austin.

But their horrendous away form continues to keep them in the Premier League mire, as they allowed Swansea City to dominate them on Tuesday and eventually win comfortably, which makes this encounter all the more crucial.

Burnley have made a major improvement over recent weeks, and the goals of Danny Ings are just as important to them as his former teammate Austin’s are for the hosts, although George Boyd has also chipped in, netting in Tuesday’s draw with Newcastle United.

Given the fact they came under late pressure, the Clarets will probably have taken a point in that game, but there will inevitably be some disappointment that only two points came from consecutive home fixtures.

Sandro and Adel Taarabt are likely to be missing until the New Year for QPR, while Alejandro Faurlin is a long-term absentee. However, Bobby Zamora returns from injury.

Michael Duff, Matt Taylor and Sam Vokes are still out for Burnley, and Stephen Ward is doubtful with an ankle problem.
