    The big one has arrived... live on Friday night Fulham are home to local rivals QPR who have been a surprise success so far this season.

    Before the season started I had QPR as relegation candidates and to be honest my QPR friends agreed, they had lost a lot of players and had no strikers whatsoever and no money to buy with and then in the last few days of the window they got two solid championship strikers in loan Wells and Hugill and two solid experienced premiership players in for free Cameron and Smith add them to the Eze there quality young attacking midfielder and they improved there team massively overnight!

    This game could have goals, firstly Fulham games normally do, secondly this fixture normally does, and thirdly Both teams are much stronger going forward than defending.

    I have heard no news on Fulham’s injured pair of Arter and Bryan, for Arter we have plenty of options but if Bryan was to return it would be a massive boost. Mitro continued scoring over the international break and it wouldn’t shock me to see Christie at right back!

    Three points before everyone else plays would be huge and move us back into the top 6.

    I forgot Mitro is suspended it will be interesting to see how we replace him, I can’t see Bobby Reid playing as a lone striker personally!

    Scott was not very fothcoming with injury news in the presser, hopefully Cairney is back.

    I think AK49 will get to start with Booby Reid, supported by either Cav or Knockhart.

    This to me is a must win to get us on a proper move up the table, then stay there.

    I agree need a win - preferably a good one - to stamp our credentials on the league. Shame about Mitro though

    A good win and result after a very poor start. We ground that out for sure.
    I'm pleased for AK47 but not as much as he was, MoTM.

    Well it wasn't convincing but we won. First 20 mins was a real shambles, defence again letting us down. Let's put it down to players only just coming back from the International break as that was not a promotion busting performance. A win is a win but we rode our luck I feel in this game and fortunately QPR's defence is worse than ours.

    Well done AK, he took his opportunity and had a good game. Really pleased for him. Hopefully the team will have got back to the dressing room and take some pride from getting back into the game and winning when they did not play well, mind you they have to learn from it as it won't happen too many times again.
