Gabbidon backs Ferdinand


QPR centre-back Anton Ferdinand will want to face up against Chelsea and John Terry in the FA Cup fourth-round tie, according to defensive partner Danny Gabbidon.

The Hoops won the Barclays Premier League clash against Chelsea at Loftus Road earlier this season - a match also remembered for allegations that Blues captain Terry aimed racial abuse at Ferdinand. Terry has always denied the allegations.

QPR manager Mark Hughes will check with Ferdinand before deciding whether to play him on January 28, although Gabbidon believes his fellow defender will be keen to feature, saying: "Of course he will want to play."
