Norwich manager Paul Lambert will be without a number of players for the game.

Centre-half Leon Barnett completes a two-game ban while left-back Simon Lappin is also suspended after picking up his fifth booking during the 4-2 home win over Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Fellow defender Elliott Ward (calf) and on-loan midfielder Henri Lansbury (hamstring) are ruled out "for a few weeks", with Andrew Surman (knee) a long-term absentee.

Jens Berthel Askou replaced Ward against the Blades although Zak Whitbread is another option after he came off the bench late on to make his first appearance of the season. Long-serving Adam Drury should slot in at left-back for Lappin.

An unnamed player has picked up a knock and is doubtful but striker Aaron Wilbraham will go straight into the squad after joining from MK Dons.

QPR boss Neil Warnock will include Clint Hill in his squad after the defender's red card was rescinded on appeal.

Hill was dismissed by referee Phil Crossley following an altercation with Swansea defender Alan Tate in the Boxing Day clash at Loftus Road. But at a meeting with the Football Association's Regulatory Commission, the club's appeal against the decision was upheld.

"I'm thankful the powers that be have looked at it and agreed that it was never a red card in the first place," Hill told the club's official website.

Defender Peter Ramage, striker Akos Buzsaky and midfielder Lee Cook are all doubts with knee injuries.

Free-scoring midfielder Adel Taarabt will look to add to his 11 league goals at Carrow Road.
