Two sides needing the points for very different reasons meet on Saturday evening when Tottenham travel to Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.
QPR sit in 17th place at the moment and are two points clear of the drop zone, however 18th place Bolton do have two games in hand.
Rangers face a very tough run in from now until the end of the campaign, with home games against Spurs and Stoke and difficult trips to Chelsea and Man City. If they are to avoid relegation this season, they must get results from their home matches.
Mark Hughes side have been very impressive at Loftus Road over recent weeks, winning their last three in the Premier League.
With wins against Arsenal and Liverpool in this good run at home, Hughes will be confident his side can beat another one of the league’s top sides.
QPR do also have the best goal difference of the bottom five, something that could prove to be vital at the end of the season. With how tight it is in the scrap for survival this season, goal difference could determine Premier League or Championship football.
As for Tottenham, it has been a difficult few weeks for Harry Redknapp and his side. They will need to bounce back after the 5-1 thrashing to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend.
Spurs were at one stage of the season genuine title contenders but just one win in their last eight Premier League games has seen them drop to fourth, level on points with fifth place Newcastle.
Redknapp will know that a Champions League place is crucial this year so his side will have to start performing and picking up points.
The North London side look to have a decent run in from now until the end of the season, only having to play Fulham from the top half. The Spurs boss will know however, that playing against teams at the bottom in this stage of the season is far from easy.
Despite their poor run of form of late, Tottenham still go into the game as favourites, 1.95 (20/21) are the odds on Spurs taking all three points with BoyleSports.
Tottenham front man Emmanuel Adebayor looks like being the most likely to get the scoring underway at Loftus Road. His odds are 6.00 (5/1) with BetFred.
QPR’s best chance of breaking the deadlock comes from January signing Bobby Zamora, 10.00 (9/1) are the best odds on this happening with StanJames.
Both these sides are known for their attacking play and are both desperate to take all three points. A recommended bet for this game is Tottenham to win 3-2. 26.00 (25/1) are the odds on this with SkyBet.
