Ian Holloway confidently predicts QPR v Fulham

The pundit has been previewing Fulham's trip to Queens Park Rangers.

Former QPR boss and current pundit Ian Holloway believes the west London side will beat Fulham 2-0 in the Championship this weekend, according to his regular predictions column on Sky Sports.

Indeed, Holloway thinks the R's are beginning to look 'more stable' under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and backs them to beat arch rivals Fulham comfortably at Loftus Road.

And he is also pleased there is 'a bit of calm' at QPR right now.

The former R's boss told Sky: "Fulham have won just one of their last 15 league matches while QPR are starting to look a little more stable under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who has got his team improving with each game.

"I didn't like the upheaval behind the scenes before Hasselbaink's appointment but there is a bit of calm at the club at the minute."

QPR will have home advantage, of course, and will be desperate to exact revenge on Fulham after their 4-0 thrashing at Craven Cottage earlier this season.

That said, Fulham are also starting to look more stable under Slavisa Jokanovic and both west London sides could end up enjoying strong campaigns next time around under promising young managers.

It should be a brilliant contest during Saturday's early kick-off and, if Holloway is proven right, it's the QPR fans who will be celebrating come full-time.
