Requiring no more than 12 points from nine matches to secure a return to the Premier League, most people associated with Fulham will be anticipating the moment where another stint in the top flight is confirmed.
However, that will not be the mindset of head coach Marco Silva, who has witnessed his team claim just one point from games at Barnsley and West Bromwich Albion.
When all is said and done, the performances during that double-header are unlikely to cost the Cottagers, but Silva will be demanding vast improvements at a time when he wants to set standards ahead of next season.
Those disappointing results came on the back end of a relentless run of fixtures, however, and that is something which should be taken into consideration when deliberating over whether Fulham’s slump could continue.
Although players being away on international duty has not helped matters, two-and-a-half weeks will have passed since their last fixture come Saturday, enough time for a squad of his depth to establish some freshness in their legs.
difficult encounters also to come in the short term, Mark Warburton knows that his team must find a level of performance which they have not produced since January to remain in the promotion mix.
Five of their remaining eight games will also be played away from their home ground in the capital, increasing the need for defeat to be avoided against their neighbours.
Warburton will make several changes to his QPR XI with Yoann Barbet and Jeff Hendrick both in line for recalls.
Dion Sanderson and Andre Dozzell are expected to drop down to the substitutes’ bench, but Andre Gray should keep his place ahead of Charlie Austin.
Lyndon Dykes should take a spot among the replacements after making his return from a hamstring injury for Scotland in midweek.
Joe Bryan may be brought into the Fulham XI with Antonee Robinson playing 90 minutes for the United States in the early hours of Thursday morning.
