Sandro to face old employers

Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur face a reunion with Sandro who left White Hart Lane to join QPR at the start of the season when QPR host Spurs on Saturday.

The Brazilian midfielder is locked in a relegation battle with the Hoops, with the midweek home defeat to Arsenal leaving Rangers in the bottom three, three points adrift of safety.

And Sandro knows the visit of Spurs will present an equally testing challenge.

"Of course, I'm looking forward to it. But it won't be any easier. Arsenal and Spurs are much the same level," he said.

"We played well in the first half against Arsenal, but they have two chances and score from both.

"We show we can play well against the top teams - but we cannot keep losing. We need a win to rebuild confidence in the changing room, and if we can score an early goal, we can win."

And Rangers forward Bobby Zamora believes Chris Ramsey's side must learn quickly if they are to avoid another defeat that will leave them deeper in trouble.

"The manager has worked on some bits and pieces with us and I don't think we did our job as he planned against Arsenal," Zamora said.

"Performances have been good. We have been so close in so many games but close isn't enough really.

"We could do with not playing well and not working hard but getting three points as we are doing that every week but not getting the points we deserve."
