Tom Cairney saw a penalty saved; Rs went ahead through a deflected Conor Washington shot before Idrissa Sylla scored a second against the run of play, and even then Sone Aluko’s last-minute penalty hit the post to leave Whites bereft.
Malone started the October horror show at left-back and revealed Fulham are out to avenge that defeat in Saturday lunchtime’s televised tussle.
“Anything can happen in a derby and you saw that at the Cottage earlier in the season,” he said.
“We need to go there focused and hungry.
“There’s a bit of a feeling of revenge, as well. They beat us here- we should have won the game and had the chance to win it.
“It’s live on Sky as well, which adds to it.
“We’re going there to win and put on a performance.”
The 25 year-old has been lacking in derby experience so far, despite competing in the Severnside derby between Cardiff and Bristol City last season.
Malone worked with Rangers manager Ian Holloway in his spell at Millwall that ended in the Lions suffering relegation to League One.
And the defender has taken notice of QPR’s recent improvement under his former boss.
“Ian Holloway has gone in there and jigged it up,” he said.
“He’s got rid of a few and brought in a few youngsters to play for the shirt.
“You could tell after the Reading game that he’s back where he was at Blackpool, vibrant and hungry for it.
“I had him at Millwall, he’s a great manager.
“If we’re in the right frame of mind, we can go there and dominate the ball and win the game.”
