Queens Park Rangers must beat West Ham on Saturday to move out of the relegation zone. QPR have shown some heart and some form in there last three with a win , a draw and a loss against Chelsea a game in which QPR played a terrific game only to lose it in the last three minutes. If QPR are to stay up though they simply must win their home games and pick up the odd point away. Charlie Austin is the key man up front and will be the difference maker for QPR if the R's are to stay up, Chris Ramsay has settled ith a 4-4-2 and partnered bobby Zamora with Austin up front and it has paid some dividends recently but they must get the win here tomorrow or relegation will be just four games away.
West Ham are stuck in that middle ground of not being involved in a relegation battle but not having enough points to challenge for a European place. Sam Allardyce will be looking for his team to finish the season strong but the team is missing some key players through injury. Song and Valencia will be the main threat going forward with Downing also a key figure. The hammers will go to Loftus Road looking to play the role of spoliers, this is a London derby and nothing about London derby's are predictable.
Simply put I am going with the team with the greater need here. I'm taking QPR at home to get a win that will keep their survival hopes alive.
