Paul Warburton/Fulham Chronicle - QPR will wait for Crystal Palace duo
- QPR are prepared to wait until Christmas if Crystal Palace play hardball over the sales of Julian Speroni and Darren Ambrose.
- Boss Neil Warnock’s number one targets will only arrive in the summer at prices Hoops want to pay, knowing both are out of contract next summer and can be picked up for half the cost in the January transfer window.
- Despite reports of a £10million ‘war chest’ available to the Rs manager, a well-placed source at the club laughed at the idea.
- “If only," said the insider. "It’s doubtful half that money will be available, and Rangers are going to have to shop carefully if they are to recruit as intended."
- Both midfielder Ambrose (pictured) and keeper Speroni were on the losing side at the weekend against QPR, but the keeper’s comments suggested he is eyeing a switch from south to west London.
- He said: "I had a good time with Neil Warnock while he was here at Palace.
- “I’ve got one more season on my contract here. Then, whatever happens will happen."
Fulham Chronicle

- Rangers continue their quest for Championship survival with a home clash against play-off hopefuls Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.
- Buoyed by last weekend's stunning victory at Selhurst Park, Neil Warnock's men will be aiming to make it back-to-back wins versus the Bluebirds.
- Warnock will, however, be minus the services of influential defensive duo Damion Stewart and Matt Connolly, as well as long-term injury victims Gavin Mahon and Martin Rowlands.
- Cardiff, meanwhile, know victory in W12 will guarantee their place in the end of season play-off's.
- The Bluebirds currently occupy fourth place in the second tier, with 70 points from their 43 matches so far.

Peter WHITTINGHAM - Midfielder
Former Aston Villa midfielder Peter Whittingham is the unlikely top scorer in the Coca-Cola Championship as we near the end of the campaign, though his goals have helped reinforce Cardiff's position in the top-six.
A former England Youth and Under-21 International, Nuneaton-born Whittingham began his career with Villa where he started as a trainee, becoming a full professional in early November 2002.
He made 62 Premier League and Cup appearances for Villa and had loan spells with Burnley in 2004/05 and with Derby County in 2005/06 when he played at left-back, though his usual position is either left or right midfield.
He joined Cardiff City in January 2007 for a £350,000 fee and has been a regular in the side since his arrival.
Classic Encounter
Cardiff City 0, QPR 2
Coca Cola Championship - Saturday 19th September 2009
Jay Simpson was at the double, as Jim Magilton's men cruised to a comfortable victory against high-flying Cardiff City.
The Arsenal loanee bagged a first-half brace, on a day when Rangers turned on the style to clinch back-to-back away wins.
In truth, the 2-0 scoreline totally flattered the hosts, with the midfielder quartet of Wayne Routledge, Martin Rowlands, Ben Watson and Akos Buzsaky instrumental throughout, as Rangers dominated proceedings from the first whistle to the last.

Liam O'Brien missing out on taking his place [on the Portsmouth bench] shortly before the game over fears that an appearance would lead to a payment - yet another of those clauses written into contracts! - having to be made to QPR if he had to come on. So, we had no sub keeper on the bench..."
