Swansea City v QPR: Can Redknapp revenge Loftus Road massacre


Bookmark and Share

Swansea City have one eye on a date at Wembley while QPR have their utmost attention on beating the drop but despite a five-game unbeaten record the R's have it all to do this afternoon.

QPR were given a rude awakening on the opening day of the season as Michu made his mark on the Premier League with a brace in a 5-0 drubbing at Loftus Road. That game set the tone for the R's.

A lot has changed at Loftus Road since that opening day defeat. Mark Hughes has been replaced by Harry Redknapp and a number of new and old faces have been brought into the starting XI, but one thing remains the same . . . QPR are in deep, deep trouble.

The Hoops have given themselves a chance of beating the drop by picking up points here and there, but they need to start winning games. Seven wins from their last 13 games will give them 38 points, which could be enough this season to stay up. But where are they going to come from, especially as they have only won two all season? But if anyone can get them out of this hole it's Harry Redknapp.

Swansea may well have their foot off the gas as they let their attention drift towards Wembley, but their home form remains impressive. Only Everton and Norwich have left Wales with maximum points. Can QPR become the third and give their survival hopes a real lift?
