QPR star hails ‘deadly’ strike partnership

Ferdinand expects Johnson and Zamora to prosper for the Rs this season

Strikers Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson will make a lethal partnership for QPR this season, believes team-mate Anton Ferdinand.

Johnson and Zamora spent three years playing together for Fulham, latterly under Mark Hughes, and will team up again for Rangers this season.

Ferdinand is confident that the pair will deliver again, and the centre-back believes Rangers are spoilt for choice in their forward positions.

“They’re deadly – a good pair,” said Ferdinand. “But we’ve got [other] strikers. There’s competition up there. We’ve got Djibril, Adel Taarabt, Jamie Mackie – we’ve got a lot of options. “To have a goal-scorer like Andy and the likes of Djibril and Bobby means the future’s looking bright for the club.”
