Unbeaten QPR head to Pride Park - the home of Derby County - on Saturday afternoon, aiming to extend their three match winning run in the npower Championship.

Neil Warnock's men have enjoyed a fine start to the 2010/11 campaign, and will be hoping to prolong their stay at the summit of the division with victory at a stadium which has proved to be a happy hunting ground in recent years.

The R's are unbeaten on their last five visits to the Rams, having won three and drawn two, including last season's memorable 4-2 victory in front of the live TV cameras.

Derby, meanwhile, have made a less than ideal start to their campaign, with one win and two defeats from their opening three fixtures in the second tier.

Nigel Clough's men currently occupy 16th place in the Championship table.

Star Man

Robbie SAVAGE - Midfielder

Love him or loathe him, few can deny Robbie Savage has enjoyed a fine career in the professional game.

A dogged and determined midfielder, 'Sav' - as he's affectionately known in the game - gives his heart and soul whenever he steps foot on to the field of play.

A veteran of over 500 appearances, the Welshman will be keen to build on a productive 2009/10 campaign, which saw him scoop the Rams' Player of the Year award, after appearing in every single Championship fixture.

The Pre-Match Talk

*Bradley Orr, QPR: "It will be a very tough test.

"It's a tough place to go, but we're looking forward to it and hopefully we can produce the goods again like we did at Sheffield United."

*Robbie Savage, Derby: "I think we can beat QPR, I really, really believe it.

"I am sure everyone at Loftus Road will be feeling exactly the same, that's the beauty of the Championship and how open a league it is."

Classic Encounter

Derby County 2, QPR 4

Coca Cola Championship - Saturday 24th October 2009

The R's fought back from two goals down to earn a stunning victory at Pride Park in front of the live BBC TV cameras.

Trailing 2-0 to goals from Paul Dickov and Robbie Savage, Rangers responded in emphatic style to gain further ground on the Championship's front-runners.

Adel Taarabt sparked the revival with a delicious right-footed free kick, before the outstanding Gavin Mahon drew Rangers level seconds into the second period with a tidy close-range finish.

The comeback was complete just before the hour, when Jay Simpson bagged his sixth goal of the campaign with a well-taken low drive.

The R's even had the luxury of a late fourth courtesy of Akos Buzsaky's spot-kick, as Rangers jumped into the play-off zone in style.

Match odds with Coral

Derby County win - 2/1
