Sunderland v Queens Park Rangers Preview
Sunderland, Nov 27: Harry Redknapp is set to take charge of his new team Queens Park Rangers who are currently bottom of the table without a single win this season. The former Tottenham manager faces his first challenge against Martin O'Niel's Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Black Cats have won just two league games so far and are only two points clear of the relegation zone. But all eyes will on Redknapp who admitted this is the toughest phase of his career with the Rangers having only 4 points in 13 games.

Sunderland captain Lee Cattermole is sidelined due to a knee injury and defender John O'Shea suffered a calf injury during the loss against West Brom Albion.

Rangers welcome back captain Park Ji-sung is likely to start in Redknapp's first game while Jose Bosingwa could return to the starting XI.

Trivia:

*QPR have not won any of their last five visits to Sunderland.

*Sunderland did the double over QPR last season.

Probable Lineups:

Sunderland (4-4-2): Mignolet-Bardsley, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Rose-Johnson, Larsson, Cattermole, McClean-Sessegnon-Fletcher.

Queens Park Rangers (4-2-3-1): Julio Cesar-Bosingwa, Mbia, Nelsen, Traore-Diakite, Faurlin; Granero, Park, Hoilett-Cisse.
