Saints take on QPR with injury worries finally easing and George Burley’s team looking for a hat trick of wins in 2006.

Vital Quotes:

QPR Team News:

Martin Rowlands, Marc Nygaard, Kevin Gallen, Marc Bircham, Tom Doherty and keeper Jake Cole are all out injured for Rangers. While defender Matthew Rose is also a major doubt.

Player to watch: Gareth Ainsworth

Ainsworth scored in Rangers last home game, and the midfielder is the clubs top scorer this season with 5 goals.

Saints Team News:

Saints will be relieved to be welcoming back Matt Oakley, Darren Powell and Danny Higginbotham from injury.

Kamil Kosowski, Tomasz Hajto, Yoann Folly and Leon Best will probably all miss the match with knocks.

The game also comes to early for Marian Pahars, but he’ll travel to the game and could make the bench.

Player to watch: Nathan Dyer

Dyer has looked the part in recent matches, with his running and skill causing defences huge problems.

While opposition managers and defences will be giving their attention to Walcott, Dyer can benefit from his lower profile.
