QPR manager Neil Warnock will choose from an unchanged squad as his side bid to secure the Championship title with victory over the Tigers.

Warnock has no new injury or suspension worries following Saturday's 2-2 draw at promotion rivals Cardiff, while defender Fitz Hall is pushing for a return to the starting line-up.

Hall stepped off the substitutes' bench for the final 10 minutes against the Bluebirds after missing the previous two games due to a groin injury.

Striker Patrick Agyemang is pushing for a recall after replacing Tommy Smith for the final 20 minutes on Saturday, while midfielder Akos Buzsaky, striker Rob Hulse and winger Hogan Ephraim - all unused substitutes at Cardiff - are among those hoping to feature.

Defender Peter Ramage (cruciate), winger Lee Cook (knee) and striker Jamie Mackie (broken leg) remain long-term absentees.

Hull manager Nigel Pearson is facing an injury crisis.

Liam Rosenior and Robert Koren picked up medial ligament and hamstring injuries respectively during Saturday's 4-2 defeat to Middlesbrough and will miss out.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Vito Mannone has suffered a recurrence of a shoulder problem and will also be on the treatment table.

"We've got a few problems going into Monday," said Pearson.

"Liam Rosenior has picked up a medial ligament injury and it could be the end of his season, while Robert Koren's got a hamstring problem and with Vito Mannone it's his shoulder again."

Player-coach Nick Barmby, who has been sidelined for the last five matches due to a calf strain, remains sidelined.
