Spurs won't Bale QPR out

It's fairly straight forward at Loftus Road, do or die. QPR are battling to avoid relegation while Spurs sense that third place is potentially up for grabs.

The drama of the Premier League goes into overdrive this weekend, but for many in West London there will be no better theatre than their beloved home ground.

Pantomime villain Arry Redknapp is being widely touted as the next England manager and he will get a nice taste for the job as he leads a team in white against supposed inferior opposition.

QPR's recent record has seen them win then lose and repeat this pattern over their last seven games. Victories against Arsenal and Liverpool came on the backs of defeats to West Brom and Sunderland and fellow relegation candidates Bolton.

The sides played out a four goal game at White Hart Lane earlier in the season as Spurs ran out 3-1 winners.

Spurs (Evs) may travel to Sheppard's Bush with a few injuries but they have a formidable squad which includes form Ranger Kyle Walker. The winger was undoubtedly the best player for the side in the Championship and he could come back to haunt them in their quest for survival.

QPR (3/1) have an Adel Tarrabt (8/1 first goalscorer, 11/4 anytime) who was deemed unmanageable by Spurs and many feel he is due to re-pay the lack of faith shown in him. The Mercurial Moroccan open his account this season in spectacular fashion against Arsenal. He was nothing short of a flop when the sides last met, but if the chant of "Taarabt's too good for you" were to be justified with a goal then all would be forgotten.

Tottenham have failed to score in three successive away league games. If they fail to net at Loftus Road, they will equal their Premier League record of four without a goal on the road. But with Adebayor (9/2 first), Louis Sash (5/1 first) and Van der Vaart (13/2 first) in the squad and the fact QPR have only kept one clean sheet in the league this year, it's hard to see past Spurs breaking this streak.

An animal is always at its worst when wounded and Spurs are a wounded beast. Their humiliation at the hands of Chelsea could come back to bit QPR as they battle to save their season also. You can back the visitors on the double result market at 15/8 for Tottenham/Tottenham.
