Manch­ester City held to draw by last-place QPR

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS -

Manch­ester City missed a chance to put the pres­sure on Manch­ester United at the top of Pre­mier League by draw­ing 0-0 at cel­lard­welling Queens Park Rangers on Tues­day. The in­abil­ity to break through a com­pact QPR side means the cham­pi­ons are four points be­hind United, which can surge seven points clear by beat­ing Southamp­ton on Wed­nes­day. QPR re­mains in the base­ment, but is now three points be­hind Read­ing and four adrift of As­ton Villa. New­cas­tle climbed four points clear of As­ton Villa af­ter goals from Papiss Cisse and Yo­han Cabaye clinched a 2-1 win at Villa Park that plunged the hosts into the rel­e­ga­tion zone. Wi­gan moved out of the rel­e­ga­tion places on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter draw­ing 2-2 at Stoke, while Swansea drew 0-0 with Sun­der­land in a meet­ing of mid-ta­ble teams.
