- Next up: A relegation-fighting Southampton take on a slumping QPR. Southampton have won just 3 games at home all season (although two of those wins came in their last three home games!) QPR haven't won any of their last 8 games - and have scored just 4 goals in those 8 games. QPR last picked up a win at Blackpool at the end of January).

The Last QPR vs Southampton Meeting: Back in mid-September, in a televized Sunday game, Iain Dowie's QPR crushed Southampton 4-1 (and moved up to fourth):
Wolves 5 13
Birmingham 5 13
Preston 5 11
QPR 5 10
QPR's team against Southampton: Cerny – P Ramage, M Connolly, D Stewart, D Delaney – M Leigertwood, G Mahon – H Ephraim (sub: P Agyemang, 59min), M Parejo (sub: M Rowlands 59), L Cook – D Blackstock.

This is Hampshire/Gordon Simpson - Wotte will only focus on QPR game
- MARK Wotte is refusing to look past Saturday’s clash with QPR, as Saints enter a crucial four-match period in their bid for survival.
- Saints host the London club, who are in terrible form, at St Mary’s this weekend.
- After that, they will visit fellow strugglers Blackpool in the first of three six-pointers.
- Following their trip to the Tangerines, Saints will face Charlton at home and then play their rearranged fixture with Watford at Vicarage Road.
- That is a spell that will undoubtedly define Saints’ season and one they almost certainly need to pick up a couple of wins from.
- With teams at the bottom beginning to bunch up – only three points separate Saints and the three teams above them – the relegation battle is reaching a critical stage.
- But Wotte has no intention of looking too far ahead.
- All the Dutchman is interested in is taking three points on Saturday.
