Snippets: Chris Kamara on QPR's Promotion Chances...Adam Bolder on Ben Sahar

SkySports - With Chris Kamara =
Hi Chris, just wondering if you fancy the Superclarets' chances of gaining promotion this year? The signing of Andy Cole should ease our goalscoring worries and after the comeback at QPR we have showed that we will not crumble under pressure, although the bookies still have QPR favourites ahead of us to go up even though they are seven points behind us?? Jordan Smith, Burnley.

KAMMY SAYS: I'm surprised to hear you say QPR are favourites ahead of Burnley for the play-offs because I don't fancy them to get anywhere near this season. They'll be happy just to get through this campaign and they will be looking to get amongst it next year. Flavio Briatore has told me that they are taking a long-term view on things.
As for Burnley, they've got a fabulous manager in Owen Coyle as I said when he first came and nothing has made me change my mind since then. Signing Andy Cole is a masterstroke really. He's not played much football in the last two years, but you know if you put the ball in the box then he'll score goals for you. I'd compare it to the loan signing of Henrik Larsson by Manchester United last season. He was a wonderful guy to bring in to the Premier League and the signing of Cole is just as good for Burnley in the league below. Burnley will create enough chances because that's the way Coyle likes to play. They are a decent side and won't be too far away, that's for certain. Skysports

Yorkshire Star - Sahar could be a new star for Owls
OWLS loan midfield player Adam Bolder is tipping his former teammate Ben Sahar to be a Hillsborough hit.
The two were colleagues at QPR - where Sahar had a loan spell this season - and are back together now that the Chelsea striker has completed his loan switch to Wednesday
"He's a good kid, a hard worker with a lot of talent and a good pedigree," said Bolder.
"I played with him for a few months at QPR so I know the attributes he has: his finishing, his movement.
"If he gets a chance you know that nine times out of 10 he's going to score. He'll be a good asset to the club."
The decision facing manager Brian Laws is whether or not to plunge the 18-year-old straight into the side or, with him having only just joined the club, start with him on the bench against Cardiff tomorrow.
The Israeli international has been signed initially for a month but the loan could be extended.
Bolder added: "It was difficult for Ben at QPR at first because he was in and out of the team and the club were starting to bring in a lot of players.
"But if he gets a chance he's going to be a very good addition to our squad.
"He has already played international football, and it doesn't matter which country you play for - that's a massive step.
"To be playing for his national team at his age is a credit to him..."
