Redknapp ready for Villa test
QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits Saturday’s game at Aston Villa is
“massive” as they look to secure their third Premier League victory
on the bounce.
A 2-1 win over Southampton at St Mary’s on 2 March was followed
up by a 3-1 home victory against Sunderland last time out.
Three points from the trip to the West Midlands would take the
R’s to within a point of Villa in the table and Redknapp recognises
how important it is to both sides.
“It’s a big game – a massive one for both teams,” he said.
“It’s (the Villa game) not make or break but it’s massive to how
the table will look on Sunday morning. We need a result.
“We were given no hope and the pressure isn’t on us so much.
“All along, I’ve said we can survive. These two wins
(Southampton and Sunderland) have given us confidence.
“We’re in good form – just two defeats in the last nine
Redknapp has confirmed that Adel Taarabt is fit, while Julio
Cesar and Armand Traore should also be available for selection.
