Fulham new boy Pogrebnyak aware of derby importance

Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak says he is well aware how much is riding on this weekend's West London derby with QPR.

The Cottagers are away at Loftus Road tomorrow and the Russian international is looking to contribute to a second victory over the R's this season following the 6-0 drubbing at Craven Cottage back in early October.

"I understand already the rivalry with Queens Park Rangers, and having played in derby games before I know the importance of winning such matches," Pogrebnyak told

"I understand how important and dramatic Saturday's game might be and it goes without saying that I want to keep scoring and helping Fulham."
