QPR boss Neil Warnock expects to find himself in a no-win situation when he heads back to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Warnock quit the administration-hit Eagles last month to take over at Rangers and has since been replaced at Selhurst by ex-Hoops manager Paul Hart.
The 61-year-old is adamant he does not want to see Palace relegated this season but victory for the hosts would see them leapfrog Rangers in the table.
"I'm not going to enjoy any part of Saturday. I'll be glad when I'm back home on Saturday night and I've got four games to go," he told the South London Press.
"Irrespective of the result I don't feel I can win either way."
