Coventry will once again be without Aron Gunnarsson when they host leaders QPR.

The Iceland international serves the second game of a three-match ban following his red card against Norwich last week.

Fellow midfielder Carl Baker was on the bench during the 2-0 defeat at Cardiff on Boxing Day after recovering from a hernia operation and he will be involved again.

Sammy Clingan is also close to a return following a knee injury and could be added to the squad, although boss Aidy Boothroyd does not want to rush him back too soon.

Defender Ben Turner, who last week agreed a new three-and-a-half year contract at the Ricoh, is still sidelined with a knee injury.

Strike duo Clive Platt and Freddy Eastwood are pushing for starts after lively cameos at Cardiff.

QPR defender Clint Hill is set to start against Coventry despite his Boxing Day red card.

Rangers are to appeal against Hill's sending-off during the 4-0 win against Swansea and the hearing will not take place until Thursday, meaning he is free to face the Sky Blues.

The left-back will begin a three-match ban against Norwich on New Year's Day if the decision is upheld.

Boss Neil Warnock has no new injury concerns and will once again choose between Rob Hulse and Heidar Helguson to lead the line, with the latter in pole position after his goal from the penalty spot against the Swans.

Defender Peter Ramage and midfielders Lee Cook and Akos Buzsaky are still missing with knee injuries.
