No doubt about the main plot at Loftus Road this lunchtime. Harry Redknapp faces his old club Spurs for the first time since his White Hart Lane departure in the Summer.
His QPR charges have shown signs of recovery and if Harry can work his magic in the transfer window they might just make it but they need wins on the board – and quickly – or they’ll soon run out of games.
Today’s opponents look a league apart and under AVB they’ve been steadily improving and now won 9 of their last 11. He’s manged to get them up to 3rd in the table and threatening to secure a top four finish. Bale and Defoe between them have 19 goals and up against a leaky defence could profit again today. Both look decent odds to open the scoring with Defoe at 11/2 (BetVictor, Coral) and Bale 6/1 (BetVictor, Coral, Ladbrokes).
Spurs have scored 22 goals on the road and are the only side to scored in every away game this season. QPR have shored things up a bit since Redknapp’s arrival but 4/5 (Bet365) on Spurs to score two or more today looks good value.
