Furlong height a potential threat

Lanky striker Paul Furlong may be among a five-strong strikeforce competing for the chance to take pops at Leicester City in tomorrow's Championship League match at Loftus Road (7.45).

Furlong scored the decisive goal when Queens Park Rangers gained a 2-1 win over City on September 24 at The Walkers.

His height and heading ability were a constant threat to City's capable but not especially tall or physically bulky defenders.

However competition for striker places is hotting up at QPR.

The club is waiting on international clearance for their new Danish marksman, 29-year-old Sammy Youssouf who impressed in a private match trial and has joined on a six months contract.

Marc Nygaard also returned to action, playing 45 minutes of QPR's last match at Luton after injury, and there's also Stefan Moore and Shabazz Baidoo in contention.

Definitely out for QPR is Richard Langley with a foot injury. Marcus Rose (hanstring) and Marcin Kus (foot) are doubtful.

QPR have already signed three players during the transfer window opportunity and the feeling is that there could be more as manager Ian Holloway seeks to improve on the club's current 12 place in the League.

Leicester have sold over 500 tickets for the game which will be caretaker manager Rob Kelly's second in charge after Craig Levein's departure.

Normally a point from QPR would be a reasonable return but matches are running out now and Leicester need to field a team with sufficient forward momentum and strike power to win.

Whether they do that, or whether they adopt their usual contain and pinch-one policy which has so demonstrably failed we can only wait and see.
