Sunderland V QPR Preview.

K Updated

Harry will need Potters wand for this job.How quickly can Harry Redknapp work his magic?

Mark Hughes was shackled to his own transfer signings and instead of benching the underperformers or leaving them out of the squad he continued to keep the faith even when everyone else's had long since disappeared.

The starting eleven when QPR entertained Southampton and lost 3-1, the last game for Hughes:

• 33 Julio Cesar

• 03 Traore

• 05 Ferdinand

• 17 Nelsen

• 19 Bosingwa Booked (Fabio - 73' )

• 02 Diakite (Derry - 71' )

• 10 Taarabt

• 14 Granero

• 32 Faurlin (Mackie - 46' )

• 09 Cisse

• 23 Hoilett

The starting eleven against Manchester United on Saturday:

• 33 Julio Cesar

• 03 Traore (Ferdinand - 61' )

• 06 Hill

• 17 Nelsen

• 04 Derry

• 10 Taarabt (Hoilett - 73' )

• 18 Dyer

• 32 Faurlin (Granero - 84' )

• 40 M'bia Booked

• 09 Cisse

• 12 Mackie

In come players who are prepared to "put in a shift" and it was no surprise that against Manchester United on Saturday QPR were unrecognisable from the side that lost to Southampton and even managed to take a 1-0 lead before awakening United from their lethargy and provoking them into life.

Clint Hill was player of the season last year and rolled back the years with this fine defensive display. Shaun Derry is another battle hardened 34 year old recalled to midfield and Dyer and Mackie added more resilience to the team.

Mark Hughes spent a lot of money at QPR and as Redknapp has already stated himself sometimes spending more money is not the answer – they already have the players, the answer is to get the best out of them and if anyone can Redknapp can.

What is happening at Sunderland?

Costly howlers were their undoing at the weekend but their recent form has not actually been that bad. They have played a game less (against Reading) than all of the other teams and that three points along with a win against QPR tomorrow would put them above Swansea in the league table.

Looking at the recent results Sunderland beat a decent Fulham team 3-1 away last week so it is not like they are falling apart at the seams.

This is going to be a very hard fought game and I'm predicting a home win or a draw against spirited opposition.

So for this game head into the goals scored market: Under 2.5 goals is 4/6 at Ladbrokes

Under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is 4/6 a £10 bet returns £16.67
