Local derby fixtures can be feisty affairs.

The red-hot atmosphere created by two sets of vociferous fans eager to see their side gain the bragging rights, on their manor, can be transmitted onto the pitch and, often, the officials need to make allowances for any moments of hot-headedness.

This Saturday Fulham travel to Loftus Road to take on Queens Park Rangers.

Since Ian Holloway was given another stint in the Loftus Road managerial hot-seat, our West London neighbours have seen an upturn in form.

However, Fulham are building towards a promotion push and Slavisa Jokanovic will be keen to see his team grab maximum points.

On the eve of the fixture we are now able to reveal the officials allocated to the rules of the game are abided by, the four chosen are:

? Referee – Keith Stroud

? Assistant Referee – Matt Foley

? Assistant Referee – Mark Pottage

? Fourth Official – Dean Whitehouse
