Cardiff City travel to Loftus Road, for a match against QPR in which the Hoops could cement their place in the Championship this season.
Although not in grave danger of relegation, if QPR were to lose their remaining matches - they could find themselves perilously close to or inside the drop zone. Nevertheless, it has been a poor season for the R's as they sit in 18th place in the league.
Back-to-back wins over Preston, Coventry and Luton have saved QPR from a difficult relegation battle, but they have suffered from inconsistency thoughout the season. They lost their last game to rampant Sunderland but have been in good form of late, winning 4 and losing 2 of their last 6 games.
Dexter Blackstock and Lee Cook are two dangermen for QPR. Blackstock has impressed since his move from Southampton. His pace and power have seen him lead the scoring charts with 12 goals while the trickery of Lee Cook on the wing has alerted several Premiership clubs. Martin Rowlands has also chipped in with 9 goals from midfield and could be a threat.
Former Cardiff City favourite Gareth Ainsworth recently broke his leg and will miss the rest of the season. The tenascious right winger was released by Lennie Lawrence when we were promoted but has excelled for QPR and will be missed form their midfield.
Cardiff are in woeful form, without a win in 6 games and picking up just 2 points in that period. A 1-1 draw against Stoke showed some resilience and promise but the squad are beaten having lost out on the play-offs. They look tired and bereft of confidence but would desperately like to finish the season on a high.
Many of the squad are also playing for their places in next year's squad after manager Dave Jones announces a major 'squad cull' and overhaul during the summer.
Michael Chopra scored his first goal since February on Saturdaay and will be hungry for more to win the Championship golden boot in his first season since moving form Newcastle United.
Neither team have much to play for, but Cardiff need to avenge the 1-0 defeat inflicted upon them by QPR. VitalCardiff predicts a 2-1 win for the Bluebirds, more in hope than judgement !
