Weekend Preview

By Can We Play You Every Week? @canweplayblog
In a new regular feature, I’ll be casting my eye over the weekend’s fixtures and picking out the biggest games in the Premier League, the Championship, League One and League Two.
Weekend Preview
Premier League
Liverpool v Manchester United
Sun 6th March, 1.30 pm
Undoubtedly the fixture of the weekend sees ref-ranting Sir Alex Ferguson take his troops to Anfield for a clash against King Kenny’s re-born Liverpool side. It’s a big game for both teams, with Liverpool attempting to chase down Spurs in 5th place and United looked to demonstrate some bouncebackability after their midweek defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Although the Red Devils have issues at the back, with Nemanja Vidic suspended and Rio Ferdinand still sidelined with injury, I think they’ll still have enough to beat a Liverpool side, albeit revived under the management of Kenny Dalglish, lacking in quality to challenge those in the top four.
Prediction: 1-2
Queens Park Rangers v Leicester City

Sat 5th March, 3.00 pm
When these two sides played earlier in the season at the Walkers Stadium it was Queens Park Rangers who came out on top in a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory, however I doubt the Londoners will have such an easy ride this time around. Leicester look a shade of the relegation threatened side Rangers played in September and under new boss Sven-Goran Eriksson have found themselves knocking on the door of the play-offs. With a host of Premier League loanees on both sides, it will certainly be an entertaining game at Loftus Road.
Prediction: 2-2
League One
Sheffield Wednesday v Plymouth Argyle

Sat 5th March, 3.00pm
A real fall from grace for two teams relegated from the Championship last season sees 16th placed Wednesday take on bottom side Plymouth Argyle. The Devonshire club have this week entered administration and find themselves eight points from safety after a ten-point deduction. Argyle, who beat play-off chasing Colchester last Saturday, will certainly be looking to make amends for their off-field troubles and take all three points from a Wednesday side that have been so far unconvincing under new boss Gary Megson.
Prediction: 1-2
League Two
Torquay United v Stevenage

Sat 5th March, 3.00 pm
11th placed Torquay take on 10th placed Stevenage at Plainmoor in what is an important game for both sides’ play-off ambitions. The Gulls will be looking for three points after a run of four games without a win against a Stevenage side unbeaten in their last five league games.
Prediction: 1-2
