It has been a while since Andy Johnson was a prolific goalscorer, with Everton having cashed in £10.5 million when selling the striker to Fulham in 2008 and the 30-year-old only has 10 Premier League goals to his name in three seasons.
However, the former Palace forward has had lots of injury problems and perhaps he is starting to find some sharpness after scoring twice in Odense on Thursday night to help the Cottagers win in the Europa League.
Victor Chandler (£25 free bets) offer 15/2 that Johnson breaks the deadlock on Sunday as Fulham look for their first Premier League win of the season, with Martin Jol hoping that his team carry momentum into the match following their triumph in Denmark.
The question is whether you would rather be a backer or a layer of the home team at evens (Ladbrokes – £50 free betting) especially considering that Rangers comfortably won 3-0 at Wolves in their last away game.
It has been eleven seasons since the two teams met in a west London derby, with Fulham winning home and away on that occasion, although QPR are in much ruder health these days thanks to the cash injection of Tony Fernandes.
Rangers have recovered well from that opening day 4-0 tonking at the hands of Bolton to collect eight points from their subsequent five matches and they have a style which is arguably better suited to road games, with Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jay Bothroyd and Joey Barton able to move the ball quickly.
The visitors look too big at odds of 3/1 and Neil Warnock’s side are still spitting feathers after some perceived refereeing injustice against Aston Villa on Sunday which saw them scramble a late equaliser.
