QPR boss Mark Hughes believes the club's Premier League survival is in their own hands and reckons he would rather have points already secured than games in hand.
Hughes' side are currently 17th in the table and two points clear of Bolton, who have played two games less.
Even though wins in those games would see Bolton overhaul QPR Hughes is happy to be in the position of having already earned points and feels securing their top flight status is theirs to decide.
He said: "We feel it is up to us, we have difficult games but it is important that we maximise the opportunities that we have ahead of us. We have four difficult games and we make no bones about it - it is not going to be easy but we are playing well, especially at home, and we feel we can pick up enough points.
"At this stage of the season my preference would be to have points on the board so if we can get points at the weekend and put pressure on the teams in and around us that haven't accumulated as many points as us at this point - I think that more advisable and more comfortable then having games in hand."
QPR are unbeaten at Loftus Road since February and have won their last three home league matches, including upsets over Liverpool and Arsenal and a dominant 3-0 victory over Swansea and Hughes is hoping that continues against Spurs.
"Our home form has been excellent and we have to replicate that. I think if we match the levels we have hit at home then with the ability that we have and the support of the crowd we can give anyone a game," Hughes added.
"We are looking forward to it and I think it is important at this stage of the season not to have apprehension or fear ahead and you go into the game with confidence and that is certainly how we feel.''
Djibril Cisse returns to the QPR squad following his four-game ban after picking up his second red card of the season. Shaun Derry also came back into the first team fold last weekend after a one-match ban for his red card against Manchester United.
Derry was dismissed despite making minimal contact with England winger Ashley Young, who again stirred up controversy by winning another penalty against Aston Villa in similar circumstances and Hughes believes there is a fine line between diving and alerting referees to fouls.
He said: "Some players are more adept at it but you could argue that in certain circumstances most players dive and that happened during my time. I think if it is to draw the attention of the referee to a foul by emphasising the point then you cant argue that that is a valid situation but when you're actually pretending you've been fouled then that is a different issue.
"You have to understand that these things happen in split seconds and referees have to make a judgement based on what they see but players are arguably making it more difficult than they should do.''
