CHRIS Samba can be the hero if the QPR defender keeps Stoke City at bay in a must win game for the Premier League strugglers.
Defeat, and wins to the other three just outside the drop zone – and it’s curtains for Hoops after two seasons in the top flight.
Stoke’s aerial threat is a given and Rs boss Harry Redknapp is hoping his giant at the back (pic) is ready to peer upwards for long periods.
“Chris is important to us for sure,” he said. “You need people who can put their head on the ball without a doubt. If you haven’t got people who can compete in the air then you’ve got no chance.
“They're a massive big, big team. They’ve got seven or eight over 6ft 2ins – and a couple at 6ft 4ins - and one around 6ft 7ins, so sure we’re been practising set pieces and ready to attack the ball like them.”
