Rs hoping to increase gap over relegation zone when they visit Brewers

Jack Robinson believes Queens Park Rangers face a “six-pointer” when they visit Burton Albion in the Championship on Saturday.

After being dumped out of the FA Cup in the third round by MK Dons last weekened, the Rs return to league action.

Just six points split QPR in 17th from the Brewers, who occupy the final spot in the relegation zone in 22nd.

And Robinson says that makes Saturday’s game all the more important as Ian Holloway’s men bid to increase their advantage over the bottom three.

“It’s a very important game for us this weekend,” the former Liverpool defender told the club website.

“The nature of the Championship means this is a six-pointer – it’s a mad league.

“If we play our game and take our chances, we believe we can get the win we need.

“We know the importance of the fixture. When you play anyone in and around you in the league, it heightens the importance.

“We need wins away from home to enable us to climb the league table.”

The Loftus Road club will have to do without Jordan Cousins and Paul Smyth this weekend after the duo were ruled out through injury.
