O'Neill predicts tough QPR test

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill believes Queens Park Rangers will prove to be tough opponents when the two sides lock horns on Saturday.

The London club are still bottom of the Premier League table but are now just four points from safety after last weekend's 2-1 away win at Southampton. O'Neill says Harry Redknapp's team will be full of confidence going into tomorrow's clash at Loftus Road.

He said: "I think that Queens Park Rangers will be buoyed from last week's victory. We should glean something ourselves from coming back from 2-0 behind against Fulham.

"So I think it will obviously be a tough game, and I think it might be a bit more open than people would imagine."
