Queens Park Rangers will play host to Premier League Leaders Manchester United when the Red Devils travel to Loftus Road Stadium for their league tie on Saturday.
For Sir Alex Ferguson and United their goal will be to come away with full points in order to extend their current lead at the top to 15 points over local rivals Manchester City, who play host to Chelsea on Sunday.
The Red Devils have the mark of having the best away record in the Premiership, having won nine of 13 and netting 28 goals during the stretch. Their defeats were nail bitters as they lost to Everton and Norwich with both matches ending in 1-0 defeats.
For Harry Redknapp and QPR their task of staying in the top flight is almost insurmountable and dropping three points will see the club push further away from safety.
Redknapp's side has had a poor recent record at home after losing five consecutive home matches with their last win at Loftus Road coming against Fulham in December.
QPR has grown comfortable in the bottom spot and are currently eight points away from the club's ambitions of staying in the League.
But the numbers are not on QPR's side given that the home side has taken just two points from 11 Premier League matches with United and their last victory over the Red Devils came 21 years ago at Old Trafford.
QPR will need to concentrate in defense and attack wisely since they have failed to score in their last four Premier League matches with their last goal coming by way of Djibril Cissé in a 2-1 defeat against West Brom.
The club did, however, manage to keep clean sheets in each of their last three matches, but have yet to face an attacking prowess like United's.
Kick-off for the match is at 10:00 a.m. and can be watched online here.
