One To Watch - Jay Tabb

Vital QPR new signing Nik has picked out midfielder Jay Tabb as Coventry`s 'one to watch` ahead of today`s fixture at the Ricoh Arena.

The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international started his career at Rangers` west London rivals Brentford, having been released by Crystal Palace at the age of just 16. Tabb made a total of 156 appearances for the club, scoring 24 goals, earning him 'Cult` status at the Bees.

Having handed in a transfer request at the end of the 2005-06 Season, Tabb was snapped up by Championship side Coventry City for an undisclosed fee. The Coventry number 21 left Brentford in an extremely respectful manner, and it is believed that having left the club, Tabb posted on a Brentford message board, citing his reasons for leaving.

Having made his debut for Coventry against Cardiff in August 2006, Tabb began to cement a place in the Coventry side, making 32 appearances in the 2006-07 Season, scoring three goals. His form was rewarded, when at the end of the domestic campaign, Tabb was called up to the senior Republic of Ireland squad.

Tabb continued to make a name for himself in the 2007-08 season, this time making 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring six times. Tabb`s good form was recognised by Coventry at the end of the season, when he was voted as the club`s Player of the Year.

The Irishman has started this season as he ended the last, and got Coventry`s goal in Tuesday`s 1-1 draw away to Sheffield Wednesday.

There is no doubt that the likes of Martin Rowlands, Gavin Mahon and Mikele Leigertwood will have their work cut out come Saturday at 3PM.

Do you think Tabb will be a big threat? We want to know YOUR thoughts!
