QPR will look to continue their fine home (W6 D1) form this Saturday, as they welcome Chris Powell`s Charlton to Loftus Road, for what should be a combative and energetic game of football.

QPR rescued a point last time out against Reading, courtesy of a Joey Barton free-kick, however, Rangers had many chances and would`ve been slightly disappointed to come away with just a point.

The international break would`ve given the group a much-needed rest ahead of the match this Saturday but there are still various players struggling through injury. Harry Redknapp will want his side to put on a positive display for the home faithful but his creative options are somewhat limited because of injuries and I suspect the game with be very tight.

With Charlton coming off the back of a 4-2 hammering from Leeds, Chris Powell will be demanding more from his team and I would expect a reaction from his side tomorrow. For the most part, goals have been hard to come by for the Addicks, with Powell`s charges failing to score in four of their last eight in the league.

Hopefully can Rangers can rely upon their rock steady defence to help edge this one tomorrow, with the R`s keeping five clean sheets on home soil; more than any other Championship team.
