Gabbidon: Ferdinand faces 'difficult game' against Chelsea
Danny Gabbidon has admitted that Queens Park Rangers' FA Cup fourth-round tie with Chelsea might be "difficult" for Anton Ferdinand, the subject of alleged racist abuse from John Terry in October.
"The game might be a bit more difficult for Anton," Gabbidon said. "Hopefully he will be focussed on the game. He's anexperienced player. It can be tough when everyone is talking about it, and your family is getting threats from people. It's not nice. But he's level-headed and he will just go out there and let his football do the talking."
Gabbidon said that the players do not discuss the allegations: "Obviously we know what went on and we are all shocked by it."
