Premier League: QPR - Newcastle
premier league
Newcastle United visit bottom-placed QPR on Sunday knowing a victory will all but secure their place in the Premier League next season.
Alan Pardew's side have been dreadful in recent weeks and a run of form that has seen them win just one of their last nine matches in all competitions has seen them slip to 17th in the table.

They could have actually started Sunday in the relegation zone had Wigan held on to their lead against Swansea City on Tuesday, but second-half goals from Angel Rangel, Itay Shechter and Dwight Tiendalli saw the Welsh side escape with a 3-2 win.

That means Newcastle enter this match with a three-point gap on Wigan and they may fancy their chances aga ... Read more »

FA Cup Final : Man City v Wigan
Manchester City will look to win their third trophy in as many years when they battle Wigan in Saturday's FA Cup Final at Wembley.
The Etihad Stadium outfit broke a 35-year trophy drought with victory over Stoke City in the 2011 FA Cup Final, which they followed up with a dramatic final-day Premier League title win last season.

And while City have stagnated in the league in 2012-13, another success would still represent a decent year for Roberto Mancini's side.

Manchester City's run to this season's final has seen them concede just one goal in five matches, with the club barely raising a sweat in easy home wins against Championship sides Watford, Leeds United and Barnsley.
