QPR will be without a host of first-team players.

Akos Buzsaky is struggling to feature at Loftus Road with an Achilles injury, while Danny Gabbidon, Matthew Connolly and Heidar Helguson are also doubts.

Strikers Jay Bothroyd (groin) and DJ Campbell (hamstring) are definitely sidelined, while Armand Traore and Adel Taarabt are on international duty.
