QPR will be brimming with confidence when they make their long-awaited return to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham this weekend, and Scott Parker has urged his teammates to raise their game for Sunday's Barclays Premier League encounter.

Neil Warnock's Rangers side travel to Spurs for their first top-flight clash since December 1995, straight off the back of another notable derby success, having beaten Chelsea 1-0 at Loftus Road last week.

"It's another London derby and they are coming out of a great result against Chelsea, so it will be tough," said Parker. "A lot of teams come to White Hart Lane and get that extra lift, they are up against a good team and they want to do well.

"QPR have just come back into the Premier League and won't be any different, they will do everything they can to try to win or get a point."

The 31-year-old midfielder has made an impressive start to life in north London, after making a deadline day switch from West Ham. And Parker is looking to carry his form into the next game, in a bid to help prolong Spurs' unbeaten run.

"We're fully aware of that [the threat they pose] but if we do what we can do, and play the way we can, I'm confident we can win the game," he added.

"We're all determined to keep this unbeaten run going."
