QPR midfielder Shaun Derry has played down the significance of Sunday's home clash with promotion rivals Nottingham Forest.
Rangers top the npower Championship but Billy Davies' men lie in third spot with games in hand on all of the top six.
Victory for Rangers would take them a step closer to automatic promotion but Derry told the club's official website: "I don't think that Sunday is crucial, not by any stretch of the imagination.
"But it's a big game. A lot of eyes will be on us, like when we played Cardiff a few months ago.
"We don't think it's going to be a deciding factor on what happens for the end of the season, but it's a big game."
