Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits he sees their clash with QPR as a six pointer.

Three more points will lift Villa to within sight of mid-table and Lambert said that while he knows QPR will be boosted by Harry Redknapp's arrival, he has no intention of joining in the merriment.

"Harry going in there will automatically give them a lift, as he is a brilliant manager," said Lambert. "It's an extremely tough game for us. But we would be happy to win and keep them down there."
