Redknapp: Winning at Villa is vital

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has admitted today's trip to survival rivals Aston Villa will play a key role in deciding who is consigned to the drop.

QPR head to Villa Park on the back of a two-game winning run that has revitalised their survival bid. Another victory today would leave them just a point behind Villa, who occupy the final safety position, with eight games remaining.


Villa skipper Ron Vlaar this week described the match as "massive" and while Redknapp agrees, he denied the loser's fate would be sealed.

"Not necessarily. If you can get the win it will make a massive difference to how things look on Sunday when you look at the league table," he said.

"We need a result tomorrow at Villa. It's a big game for us."
