QPR will play strongest team against Newcastle, says Chris Ramsey

Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey wants to give his supporters something to cheer against Newcastle United.

Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey has told the club's official site that he intends to pick the strongest team available to him at the weekend.

QPR's relegation was confirmed after their defeat to Manchester City in their last fixture, but Ramsey insists that he will not be testing out some of his younger players in their remaining fixtures.

The R's boss believes that QPR owe it to the Premier League to play their best players and he intends to put out his best team against Newcastle United on Saturday. 

"We need to take pride in our performance this weekend," he said. "We will be preparing for it like any other game and I'll pick our strongest possible side."

The news that QPR are going to be at full strength will be disappointing to Newcastle, as they are under so much pressure to win the fixture.

The Magpies will fall into the bottom three if they lose at Loftus Road and Hull City beat Tottenham Hotspur, so the stakes are very high. 

Newcastle would have been hoping that QPR's relegation could have caused them to take it easy, but it seems that Ramsey will not allow that to happen. 

As a result, the R's could pose a test for Newcastle as they will be playing with freedom and they will want to give their supporters something to cheer in their final home game of the campaign.
