Manchester city defender Joleon Lescott has said that the club should certainly not take their opponents on the final day of the season QPR lightly.
QPR will be visiting the Etihad stadium on the last day of the season knowing that they can still survive even after a defeat.
They are currently two points above Bolton in the relegation fight. The final relegation spot will be decided between QPR and Bolton. While Bolton are up against the prospect of beating Stoke city at the Britannia stadium, QPR will know that they can survive realistically with a point from the Etihad stadium.
City, however, have a big prize on their mind, as they could lift the Premier league title in front of their home fans for the first time in 44 years. They are currently leading Manchester United in the table due to their better goal difference, which means that they should win against QPR in order to be absolutely certain about lifting the title. Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has said that the club should not be relaxed about the final match of the season especially considering that Manchester United will be having an away match at Sunderland, who have nothing to play in the fixture.
“I’ve heard a few things have been said about how we will approach the game and that we think all we have to do is turn up – but that’s complete nonsense. Every team we play represents a different challenge and we will go out there with the right attitude and manner and try to get the job done. It’s been a great few weeks with the five wins on the bounce and the way we’ve turned things around, but for us to start getting carried away now would be silly,” said Joleon Lescott.
