QPR vs Fulham: FA Cup preview

Q

PR and Fulham meet in a London derby in the FA Cup on Saturday looking for a reprieve from their league form.

The Premier League side have seen their past two games postponed due to a Covid outbreak at the club, and were winless in the six previous.

QPR, meanwhile, are without a win in 12 Championship games but come into the game off a confidence-boosting 1-1 draw at leaders Norwich.

QPR vs Fulham is scheduled for an 3pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, January 9, 2020.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Loftus Road.

TV channel: The match will not be broadcast live on TV in the UK.

Live stream: UK viewers will be able to watch the game on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website.

Fulham manager Scott Parker may be tempted to make less changes than previously planned after back-to-back match postponements. Though, Marek Rodak will be looking to take his place between the posts for Fulham. Tom Cairney and Aboubakar Kamara should start after seeing their minutes reduced in the league.

QPR will likely rotate, with Albert Adomah, Chris Willock and Conor Masterson among those looking for a chance to impress.

Prediction: QPR 1-2 Fulham

This should be an entertaining derby, with both teams having a point to prove. The visitors should have the edge, especially in attack.
