Queens Park Rangers have confirmed their Boxing Day fixture against West Brom will go ahead, despite a Tube strike in London.

The first of three strikes planned by London Underground drivers is scheduled for Boxing Day, in a row over Bank Holiday pay.

A statement on QPR's official website said: "The Boxing Day fixture against West Bromwich Albion will go ahead as scheduled, despite Tube services across the capital being affected by a drivers' strike.

"The Barclays Premier League clash against the Baggies will kick-off at 3.00pm, although supporters are advised to allow extra time for their journeys to and from Loftus Road.

"Buses will be running on the usual Sunday/Bank Holiday service on the day of the fixture, whilst parking in the borough will be free."

Other games that may be affected include Arsenal v West Ham and Fulham v Southampton.

Arsenal previously warned their game may be postponed should there be a Tube strike although this is waiting to be confirmed.
