Sunderland's Roy Keane Looks Forward to Tonight's Game

Sunderland Official Site By Nick Alexander
Roy Keane wants Sunderland to end 2006 on a high.

The Black Cats are unbeaten in three games and go to QPR tonight looking to close the gap on the play-off places.
A win at Loftus Road (8pm) would leave them in good shape with successive home games to follow.
Keane said: "We've said it before, the league's very tight. Victory would be fantastic, especially with QPR just above us.
"We're three games unbeaten and we need to go on a run. If we can keep in touch and then bring in a couple of players in January, hopefully we'll have a decent season."
Keane added: "I've always found that going to QPR is a difficult challenge but if we can play well we'll have half a chance.

"We've played well for spells in recent games, I want us to do that for 90 minutes tonight. We want to come back from London with something."
Keane admitted that the Black Cats were lucky not to lose at Wolves on Friday night. He said: "We were fortunate to get a draw, the fact that we did was very much down to the goalkeeper.....
Keane could make changes tonight. Dwight Yorke has been unwell and could be rested while Nyron Nosworthy is pushing for a start. Chris Brown (ankle), Stephen Wright (ankle), Kenny Cunningham (knee), Ben Alnwick (shoulder) and Trevor Carson (unavailable) are out. Daryl Murphy is back after a pelvic injury and new keeper Marton Fulop is added to the squad.
