Bournemouth go to Loftus Road this weekend to face Queens Park Rangers in the Championship, hoping to keep up their push for a spot in the promotion playoffs.

The Cherries are sixth in the standings with 13 wins and 10 draws from 30 games and trail Reading by just two points.

They're unbeaten in their last three games, defeating Birmingham City and Rotherham United on either side of a goalless stalemate against Nottingham Forest.

However, it's also worth noting that Jonathan Woodgate's side beat Burnley in the FA Cup during this period, claiming a 2-0 win at Turf Moor. They are the only Championship team remaining in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Confidence in their camp is naturally high and it'll be interesting to see if that's enough to beat an improving QPR.

With five wins and just one loss from the last six games, the Superhoops have steered themselves clear of the drop zone, having trailed in 19th position at one point.

They're still six points off mid-table in 16th place and will aim to extend their run further as Bournemouth have a history of struggling at this ground.
