Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker is anticipating a tough challenge against a buoyant Queens Park Rangers who make the short trip to White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Spurs face a QPR side who come off the back of a controversial 1-0 win over neighbours Chelsea at Loftus Road last weekend.
Midfield anchor Parker believes Neil Warnock's men will raise their game for their second successive London derby.
Earlier this month, Harry Redknapp's side claimed a London scalp of their own in a 2-1 triumph over bitter rivals Arsenal.
Parker is feeling confident as Tottenham look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven games after collecting three points in a 2-1 victory over Blackburn last weekend.
"It's another London derby and they are coming out of a great result against Chelsea, so it will be tough," Parker told the club's official website.
"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 and win or get a point.
"We're fully aware of that but if we do what we can, and play the way we can, I'm confident we can win the game.
"We're all determined to keep this unbeaten run going."
