This is an absolutely huge game for these two sides with both embroiled in the relegation battle. QPR certainly must win this game if they want to put themselves in with a shout of survival. They were poor in their last outing against Swansea, however you would certainly not expect a side managed by Redknapp to put in two dire performances in a row.
Southampton seem to have played well at times and have had some impressive results at home noteably against Manchester City. Puncheon signed a new contract midweek and he could be a danger against a QPR side with the second worst goal difference in the league.
