Mark Hughes welcomes his former club Fulham to Loftus Road with QPR outside the relegation zone on goal difference alone. The R’s have lost their last two matches, to fellow strugglers Blackburn and Wolves, and have won just once in the Barclays Premier League since Hughes took over last month. The reunions do not end with Hughes, either, as Bobby Zamora will face the Cottagers for the first time since he made the short move to Loftus Road in a £6million deal in the January transfer window. Fulham’s win over Stoke last weekend left them a healthy nine points clear of what is looking increasingly like a five-way relegation scrap. Home form is responsible for their comfy mid-table spot, they have won three and drawn one of their last four at Craven Cottage. However, Martin Jol's side have the worst away record in the division, claiming eight points from 12 games on the road.
• QPR have scored the highest percentage of first half goals in the top flight this season (56%)..
• 39% of the goals Fulham have conceded this season have been shipped in the final 15 minutes of games, the highest percentage in the top flight.
