QPR v Swansea preview

QPR will check on Alejandro Faurlin ahead of the match.
The Argentine midfielder, Rangers’ player of the year last season, missed Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Leeds due to a virus.
On-loan Tottenham defender Kyle Walker stepped into midfield, but the reshuffle did not work and he was soon back at left-back.
Boss Neil Warnock was unhappy with his side’s defending against Leeds as well as in the previous match, a 3-1 defeat by Watford, so club captain Fitz Hall could earn a recall.
Midfielder Gavin Mahon has been handed a new one-month contract and may be added to the bench.
Defender Peter Ramage and midfielders Akos Buzsaky and Lee Cook are still out with knee injuries.
Swansea have no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game.
Manager Brendan Rodgers named the same matchday 18 for last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United as he did for the previous 1-1 home draw versus Millwall.
But while he has vowed not to alter City’s traditional passing and patient build-up play in order to rediscover the club’s winning habit, he may opt to rotate a couple of faces of Loftus Road.
Rodgers has already stressed the importance of utilising his squad over the frantic festive period and the likes of midfielder Darren Pratley, wide man David Cotterill and striker Stephen Dobbie may each get an early chance to shine.
Tom Butler (thigh) and Ferrie Bodde (knee) remain long-term absentees, though.
