Kompany: Serving a suspension

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.

The game is live on ESPN.

QPR (from): Kenny, Hall, Gabbidon, Taarabt, Traore, Bothroyd, Faurlin, Orr, Dyer, Barton, Young, Smith, Helguson, Murphy, Wright-Phillips, Ferdinand, Puncheon.

Man City (from): Hart, Richards, Kolarov, Lescott, Y Toure, De Jong, Milner, Barry, Silva, Balotelli, Dzeko, Aguero, Savic, Clichy, Johnson, Zabaleta, Nasri, K Toure, Hargreaves, Pantilimon.
