Southampton v QPR – Team Line-Ups
Both Harry Redknapp and Mauricio Pochettino celebrate their birthdays today and neither will settle for any less than the perfect birthday gift – three points.
Redknapp’s arrival at Loftus Road looked to have given the doomed London club a much needed boost at first, but the novelty appears to warn off now as they search for a first win in six top-flight outings.
The Saints will believe a a few more wins can be enough for them to secure Premier League safety and they’ll be targeting three points against a relegation rival today in order to keep those survival hopes well and truly alive.
Here’s how the birthday boys’ teams line up today:
Southampton: Boruc, Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Fox, Puncheon, Cork, Schneiderlin, Lallana, Ramirez, Lambert. Subs: K. Davis, S. Davis, Shaw, Rodriguez, Richardson, Guly, Ward-Prowse.
QPR: Cesar, Traore, Samba, Hill, Bosingwa, Granero, Park, Hoilett, Bothroyd, Mbia, Remy. Subs: Green, Taarabt, Mackie, Onouha, Jenas, Fabio, Townsend.
