League Two Form Guide
Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
By: Richard Hubbert
THE Mariners face perhaps the toughest game of their season so far against high-flying QPR who only narrowly missed out on promotion themselves at the end of last season.
Providing creativity from the midfield will be the experienced Gareth Ainsworth who signed after a short spell with Cardiff last season, and has already hit some spectacular goals for the Loftus Road club. Rangers also have one of the divisions hottest young talents in 20 year old Richard Pacquette whom since his debut in the 2000/01 season, has continued to excite and impress the Rangers fans with some explosive performances in attack. At the back, they have quite a few injury problems so have drafted in Arthur Gnohere on loan from Burnley - a player Michael Boulding ran ragged at the end of the 02/03 season in a 3-0 win for the Mariners.
Probable Starting XI's
Last Time Out
The Mariners last met Rangers at the end of the season that saw QPR relegated from Division One. In a relegation "six pointer", Rangers controlled the game and threw everything at Town. However, Mariners keeper Danny Coyne was in inspirational form that day and after Rangers failed to score after an hour of football, inevitably Town grabbed a winner thorough now player boss Paul Groves, who headed in a free kick on 80 minutes.
Town Team: Coyne, McDermott, Gallimore, Groves, EnHua, Coldicott, Donovan, Campbell, Allen, Cornwall, Burnett.
QPR Team: Harper, Perry, Barraclough, Plummer, Ready, Knight, Peacock, Crouch, Kiwomya, Darlington.
Attendance: 17,608 Report
