QPR's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League were hit as Charlie Austin missed a penalty as they could only draw at home against West Ham.

Austin's first-half penalty, awarded after a handball from James Collins, was saved by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian to keep the score at 0-0. At the other end the Hammers' left-back Aaron Cresswell had a 25-yard free-kick tipped over by QPR goalkeeper Robert Green, but that was the only real chance for the away side. The hosts pushed for the win and thought they had won it when Richard Dunne headed in, but the goal was ruled out by referee Mike Jones. The draw keeps QPR in the relegation zone while West Ham remain in 10th.

QPR looked to be headed to a goalless draw with table leader Chelsea but a mistake by Robert Green led to an 88th minute goal for the Blues and Rangers dropped a crucial point in a 0-1 loss.

It may not have been as harmful or as embarrassing as the infamous howler he conceded for England against the United States back in 2010, but it was nonetheless damaging. Chelsea had gone the first 88 minutes without so much as a shot on target and Rangers were very close to seeing the match out with a needed point. Green collected the ball for a goal kick, urging his men to go forward. He then scuffed it, and the ball dropped just 20 yards away, where Eden Hazard quickly pounced and the attack was on that led to the Fabregas goal. If QPR are relegated by the difference of a point, it will be difficult for their fans to not dwell on this result as the pivotal moment when their fates were sealed.

Queens Park Rangers have been dealt a massive blow with the news that midfielder Eduardo Vargas will miss the remainder of the season after a scan confirmed the Chilean had suffered a grade two medial collateral knee ligament tear.

Vargas had sent the Hoops on their way to an emphatic [and unexpected] win at West Brom in GW31 with a long range opener on 15 minutes but his afternoon was curtailed on the half hour mark as he twisted unchallenged attempting to strike a ball mid-air. QPR released an official statement on Monday advising that Vargas would be missing for around 10-12 weeks with knee ligament damage. Niko Kranjcar was his immediate replacement at the Hawthorns - and as a starter at Villa Park - but the Croatian struggled on Tuesday and Rangers’ became a much stronger unit following the introduction of Karl Henry who was paired with Joey Barton. Chris Ramsey must now consider his options ahead of Sundays' crucial game against Chelsea.

Chris Ramsey will assess Suk-Young Yun ahead of this weekends’ trip to Stamford Bridge after mild concussion ruled the Korean defender out of the draw at Villa Park.

Yun was unable to finish the match at the Hawthorns on Saturday following a clash of heads and although the problem is not thought to be serious the defender was not risked against Aston Villa. His absence earned 37-year old Clint Hill a recall and the veteran responded with a solid performance while grabbing his first ever Premier League goal. Tuesdays’ draw left QPR two points adrift of safety but the Hoops can take confidence from their last two performances and with players returning from injury Chris Ramsey will have plenty of options for the season run-in. Richard Dunne stepped up his recovery with the U21s on Tuesday while teammate Leroy Fer is close and Darnell Furlong is expected to be available for GW32.

Charlie Austin was at it again scoring a goal and creating two as QPR scored critical points on the road against West Brom.

They're not out of the relegation zone yet but the Rs drew to within a point of Sunderland after routing West Brom 4-1 at the Hawthorns for only their second away victory of the season. The scoring started with Eduardo Vargas who took an Austin pass and tallied for the visitors. Austin then took center stage with a goal from a Kranjcar assist. QPR's third came just before halftime with Bobby Zamora scoring a surprising goal from distance. The Baggies pulled one back through Victor Anichebe but in the late going it was Joey Barton with the help of Man of the Match Austin who sealed the three points for the West Londoners.

Matt Phillips is the pick of the QPR midfielders for the double week.

espite QPR’s difficulties Matt Phillips has proved a valuable fantasy asset over the past two months, starting every match since Chris Ramsey took charge and rewarding his new manager’s faith with some fine performances. Not only has Phillips already scored the goal of the season (THAT 45-yard blockbuster against Crystal Palace) but he has also made a habit of swinging in excellent crosses, grabbing four assists in his past seven games. The winger returned 17 fantasy points over the last double week and is priced at just £7.35million for the double week ahead, so we reckon he’s a genuine option to fill that final spot in your midfield.
Apr 3 - 5:38 AM

Charlie Austin is recommended for your Week 31 fantasy team as QPR play two matches.

Austin is the sixth highest fantasy points scorer in the Yahoo game this season thanks to an impressive 15 goals from 43 efforts on target. Put simply, the QPR striker loves to shoot and this trait has meant the fantasy returns have been plentiful despite his side’s struggles at the foot of the table, with an average of 11 points per match putting him up there with the likes of Eden Hazard and Santi Cazorla. Austin is on course for 22 points across the double week if he keeps up his usual consistency - and he totted up 34 points in QPR’s last double week despite two defeats - so you should be looking to find a way of fitting the 25-year-old in to your starting XI.
Apr 3 - 5:30 AM

Mauricio Isla is a doubt for QPR's critical home match with Everton in Week 30 Premier League action.

Isla has been a solid contributor this season and caretaker manager Chris Ramsey will hope to have him back for a key match against Everton. The Toffees may have notched a big win last weekend against Newcastle but have generally been beatable which makes the match huge for relegation-threatened QPR. Unfortunately, fantasy managers probably shouldn't count on Isla based on the status of his knee issue.

Joey Barton was scheduled to return from suspension for Week 30 but suffered a knock in training during the week and may miss out on the match with Everton.

The always controversial Barton has been good more often than bad this season when he has been available. The problem, as always, is that you're never sure when he's going to be sent off putting his team down a man for the remainder of the match and then seeing them short a significant contributor for one or more weeks after that. This time around injury has been added to the mix as Barton picked up a knock as he trained for his return from his latest suspension. Fantasy managers always have at least some reason to avoid Barton but this weekend those reasons are multiplied given his health.

Chris Ramsey will be hoping to have a number of players at his disposal this weekend for the must-win clash against Everton at Loftus Road. Rio Ferdinand [illness], Darnell Furlong [calf] and Mauricio Isla [knee] will all be assessed over the next 48 hours as the Hoops enter the last chance saloon looking for Premier League survival.

Rangers were hugely disappointing last time out and despite a bright start at Selhurst Park the pace and power of the Eagles’ wide play was ultimately too much and the game was effectively over during a 20 minute first half spell. Darnell Furlong was replaced at halt-time due to calf tightness but in truth the defender was given a torrid time by Bolasie which could see Rio Ferdinand or Clint Hill return to the eleven with Nedum Onuoha shuffling across onto the right. Matt Phillips scored an absolute blockbuster from all of 45 yards and Chris Ramsey will need more of the same if his side are to take anything from this match.

It was a rare day on Saturday when Charlie Austin wasn't the star for QPR in their 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

The relegation-threatened West London club has counted on Austin for most of it's goals and to regularly be their man of the match. Austin did manage to put up seven points on the strength of two shots on target but he didn't find the goal and the R's couldn't manage a much-needed win against a fellow bottom-half team. With Palace, Burnley, West Brom and Aston Villa all bottom-half winners in Week 29, relegation seems more certain than ever.

Queens Park Rangers were outmatched by Crystal Palace from the get-go, trailing 3-0 by halftime, but Matt Phillips continued to show promise with a cannon blast goal late on in what would be a 3-1 final at Selhurst Park.

It may not have counted for much and Rangers look relegation bound at the moment but you have to see the 40 yard rocket from Phillips wherever you can find it. Surely it will be among the goals of the season and featured in countless goal compilations on Youtube. Phillips has shown plenty since his time in the XI to merit consideration for fantasy XI's as a budget option, but the way things are going, he won't be in budget territory for long. He is the only Ranger to consider besides Charlie Austin.

Despite QPR's struggles, Matt Phillips is proving a handy fantasy asset.

Phillips has started all games since Chris Ramsey took over from Harry Redknapp and has rewarded his manager's faith with some excellent performances, running at defenders, taking shots, swinging in excellent crosses and assisting four of QPR's last five goal. The winger returned 17 fantasy points over the double week and is priced at just £6million in the Yahoo game, so he's a genuine option to fill your fourth midfield slot between now and the end of the season.
Mar 9 - 6:47 AM

Queens Park Rangers received a welcome boost prior to GW28 with the news that Mauricio Isla and Nedum Onuoha were passed fit although Rio Ferdinand was recalled in place of the injured Darnell Furlong.

Furlong picked up a minor calf strain during the loss to Arsenal midweek but despite his absence Chris Ramsey was still able to name a pretty strong line-up. However Rangers slumped to their sixth home defeat of the season - a Harry Kane double was enough to steal the points from Loftus Road leaving the club firmly entrenched in the relegation mire. With ten games remaining QPR will face Chelsea at home and need to travel to Liverpool / Manchester City while they remain six wins away from the magical 40 point mark. Realistically the Hoops need to secure at least 7 points from the next three games [Palace / Everton / West Brom] if they hope to survive this campaign in the top flight.
Mar 7 - 1:26 PM

Sandro got to exact a bit of revenge by scoring on his former club Tottenham, but QPR didn't have enough to get a positive result otherwise as they were defeated at Loftus Road, 1-2.

Rangers had a chance in the final half hour to come away with a draw at the very least, but the two goal deficit they found themselves in proved to be too much as they come away with zero points from two home games in the double gameweek. The lone goal came with an quarter hour to go as Bobby Zamora held the ball up for a streaking Sandro and the Brazilian fired a superb strike into the bottom corner. Rangers did offer some productive assets for their double gameweek, with Charlie Austin leading the way again, but they are now firmly entrenched in the relegation zone with this season's other two newest promotions.
