Fulham have joined QPR in exile as they prepare for weekend games.

Both clubs after playing last night weighed up the odds of travelling home and back up to the midlands and the north to prepare for Saturday.

The return journeys lost.

Rangers are training at a Premier League ground somewhere between Newcastle and Blackburn, and after their 2-0 win at Burton, Fulham have decamped to St George's Park National Football Centre in Burton itself to prepare to face Birmingham City.

Here are the Whites warming down today at the FA centre.

Earlier, Ian Holloway elaborated on the undue stress of getting back and forth.

"So it's Wednesday night at Newcastle; no flight back; what time would the coach get back if we took it? Do we travel up the following day?" all asked by Ollie.

"Now we’ve got to train at a Premier League ground. Impact on preparation? What will impact is not seeing your family from Tuesday to Saturday or even Sunday morning.

"It could be worse; you could be at an Italian club, and they lock you away if you lose."
