West London Derby Previews

We're back with a bang this week.

Dan is flying high after his storming BBC 606 show producing Robbie Savage last weekend up in Sheffield.

I might mention once or twice I read the sport to the nation for Sky last weekend too!

Enough of reflections, lets look ahead to what looks like a fine points haul for our West London Derby sides.

Press Play .....

Fulham v Blackburn Rovers Saturday 3pm

Fulham welcome Blackburn Rovers to Craven Cottage in a basement battle at the bottom of the Premier League.

While neither side are in the relegation zone the distance between the drop spots is perilously close.

Mark Hughes men have picked up six points in their last six games but are without a win in five.

Rovers have conceded more goals on their travels than any other side while Fulham are the third lowest home scorers in the division.

Preshaah prediction 1-0

QPR v Leicester City Championship Saturday 3pm

QPR welcome Leicester City to Loftus Road on a run of 10 games unbeaten in the Championship.

Neil Warnock's men are 5 points clear at the top of the table and head into the match after back to back wins over Boro' and Ipswich.

Leicester City have a neutral goal difference, QPR are +36 which is 18 ahead of nearest rivals Swansea City.

A win for QPR will keep them on track to clinch top spot and whittle away any worries over goal difference.

Preshaah Prediction 2-0

Hartlepool v Brentford League one Saturday 3pm

Brentford travel to Hartlepool in League One on a run that has seen them pick up three wins from their last five outings.

The club are undefeated since Nicky Foster took charge, he has since been appointed permanent manager until the end of the season.

Hartlepool's defence has resembled that of a sieve at times this season conceding 4 against Oldham, Brighton and Peterborough in recent weeks.

The Bee's haven’t scored 4 in a league match since the 30th of October so it could be slim pickings as 13th hosts 14th.

Preshaah prediction 1-2

Blackpool v Chelsea Premier League (Mon 8pm)

Chelsea take a trip to the seaside on Monday night as they visit Blackpool.

When the two sides met earlier in the season the Blues romped away 4-0 winners.

The mid week win over Manchester United and Champions League success away at FC Copenhagen could see a similar score line at the pleasure beach.

Chelsea have scored as many goals away on their travels this season as their opponents have at home, 22.

Preshaah prediction 1-2
