Preview: Crystal Palace v Queens Park Rangers

13 March 2015



CLICK HERE to join the debate in the Crystal Palace v Queens Park Rangers fanzone ahead of this Premier League encounter.


ABOUT
The Eagles entertain Queens Park Rangers tomorrow afternoon aiming to improve their home record which has seen them win just one of their last seven matches at Selhurst Park, and failing to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 matches in SE25.

They will fancy their chances against Chris Ramsey's side who have won just once on the road this season, a 2-0 victory at Sunderland last month, but the Hoops are unbeaten in their last seven matches against Palace and have never lost an away trip between the two side in the Premier League.

The west Londoners occupy 18th position in the table as they scrap for survival, three points adrift of Aston Villa who sit outside out of the drop zone, but a win for Alan Pardew's side would put them 11 points clear of the bottom three before the rest of the weekend's fixtures kick-off.


TEAM NEWS
Crystal Palace: Glenn Murray could be back in contention following his one match ban, and fellow attackers Marouane Chamakh and Yaya Sanogo could also return from their hamstring injuries.

Jordon Mutch is doubtful with a thigh injury picked up a fortnight ago against West Ham United, and Fraizer Campbell and Chung-young Lee remain out.

Mile Jedinak will sit out the second of his four match ban against the R's.
 
Queens Park Rangers: Joey Barton is banned for this game, and young defender Darnell Furlong will be monitored as he has a calf injury.

Long-term casualties Richard Dunne, Adel Taarabt, Leroy Fer and Alejandro Faurlin remain out.

LAST MEETING AT SELHURST PARK

2nd October 2010
Crystal Palace 1-2 Queens Park Rangers
Championship


Heidar Helguson's winner three minutes into stoppage-time snatched a victory for QPR which kept them six points clear at the top of the Championship.

Jamie Mackie intercepted a woeful back-pass from Edgar Davids before teeing up Adel Taarabt to put Rangers ahead.

Palace looked to have rescued a point when substitute Kieron Cadogan fired past Paddy Kenny in the 89th minute.

But the visitors stole the points when substitute Tommy Smith crossed for Helguson to bundle the ball home.
