A 2-1 win over Southampton at St Mary's on 2 March was followed up by a 3-1 home victory against Sunderland last time out.

Three points from the trip to the West Midlands would take the Rs to within a point of Villa in the table and Redknapp recognises how important it is to both sides.

"It's a big game - a massive one for both teams," he said.

"It's not make or break but it's massive to how the table will look on Sunday morning. We need a result.

"We were given no hope and the pressure isn't on us so much.

"All along, I've said we can survive. These two wins (Southampton and Sunderland) have given us confidence.

"We're in good form - just two defeats in the last nine games."

Redknapp has confirmed that Adel Taarabt is fit, while Julio Cesar and Armand Traore should also be available for selection.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
