Will Harry get his revenge? QPR vs Spurs preview

Harry Redknapp welcomes the club that gave him the boot in Saturday’s early kick off, but will the 65-year-old cockney have the last laugh after the final whistle?

QPR are having a torrid season, but a 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the start of the month will have ballooned confidence levels at Loftus Road and they backed that result up with a draw to a high-flying West Brom side last weekend, but facing Spurs could be an overwhelming  task if Andre Villas-Boas’ men are in full flow.

The Portuguese manager has silenced his critics of late with 4 straight wins in all competitions, a run which has guided Spurs into 3rd position in the league. In fact, since their 5-2 loss to rivals Arsenal in mid-November, Spurs have lost just once in both domestic and cup competitions, that is 12 games for you statto’s, and the defeat was a 2-1 loss away at Everton.

A massive factor of Spurs’ fine form has been the impact that both Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe have had on the goal-scoring books. Defoe has bagged himself 14 goals this campaign and amidst all the diving allegations, Bale has netted on 11 occasions, which for a winger is pretty impressive.

With QPR 5 points from safety, Harry Redknapp is hoping that the team pick up their performances and mount a serious climb away from the bottom, and there will be nothing more satisfying for the wheeler-dealer than to get one over his former employers and get the 3 points.

Sadly, I cannot see this happening. Tottenham are on flames right now and if they play to anywhere near their best, then surely the challenge will be too big for the Rs.

Sorry, ‘Arry.
