QPR are struggling to fill their bench for the game.
Shaun Derry is out with a groin problem, Akos Buzsaky has an Achilles complaint, Rob Hulse is sidelined with a knee injury and DJ Campbell is missing to foot damage.
However, Kieron Dyer could return from his foot injury while Adel Taarabt may play despite suffering from a stomach complaint.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany misses out as he serves a suspension for his sending off against Wolves.
Playmaker David Silva will be assessed after being substituted during the midweek Champions League win at Villarreal with a back injury.
Joleon Lescott is expected to return in place of Kompany with Stefan Savic retaining his spot. Owen Hargreaves will hope to be in contention after a minor calf injury but Carlos Tevez is likely to remain frozen out.
