Ferdinand not fazed by Terry meeting

QPR defender Anton Ferdinand said he will not allow the prospect of facing Chelsea’s John Terry faze him when the two sides meet on Sunday.

The former Sunderland man will line up against the 31-year-old Terry for only the second time since the ex-England captain was charged with allegedly racially-abusing the Rs defender at Loftus Road in October.

The last time that the sides met, in January’s fourth-round FA Cup clash, the pre-match handshakes were cancelled after it became apparent Ferdinand would snub Terry’s hand, and the Premier League have followed suit for this weekend’s game.

The 27-year-old centre-back has since vowed he will not be unsettled by any negative reaction from the Chelsea supporters, instead claiming he is firmly focused on QPR’s battle for Premier League survival.

“There is a big rivalry between the two clubs but, with everything that has happened, I know some fans will target me,” he told the Evening Standard.

“All I can say is that it won’t upset my game.

“My team-mates have said nothing to me about it because we are just treating it as a normal game.

“It is not about me or the current situation, it is about QPR and staying in the division.”
