It took a while to get going, but after a run of just one league win in his first eight games in charge Mark Hughes' tenure at QPR is finally looking in good shape.
The Rs' run of four straight home wins against Liverpool, Arsenal, Swansea and Tottenham have got the Loftus Road faithful confident of survival.
However, two of their final three games come against two top sides, starting with this weekend's derby trip to Chelsea. Any hopes that the Blues will be tired from their heroic exertions against Barcelona on Tuesday are dampened by the fact that Chelsea have won eight and only lost two of their 11 matches that immediately followed Champions League games this season. In-form attacker Adel Taarabt is also suspended for that game.
A home clash against Stoke comes after that, and then it is a trip to Manchester City on the final day. Even if City's title hopes are ended by that point, can Hughes really hope to score a win against his old club, who are still unbeaten at home this season?
QPR have the worst away record in the Premier League this season, taking just 11 points on the road. With visits to two of the top clubs in the division, their travel sickness could prove their downfall.
Verdict: Going down
