Queens Park Rangers host Stoke City in the Championship tomorrow.
Mark Warburton’ side will go in search of their first win in five this weekend, and of their first goal of the month – QPR have only scored one in the four games they’ve played since Nahki Wells’ departure last month.
The R’s though remain one of the highest-scoring teams in the league and will look to take advantage of a low-lying Stoke in West London tomorrow, to further the gap between themselves and the drop zone.
After last weekend’s disappointment at Huddersfield, QPR restored some fans’ faith with a solid point and clean sheet at Swansea in midweek, and will go into this weekend confident of a result and hopefully a couple of goals.
Here we take a look at the likely starting line-up that Warburton will field:
Having made five changes to his side in midweek, expect a fair few again this weekend – Liam Kelly will keep his spot in goal, whilst Ryan Manning, Yoann Barbet and Grant Hall should keep their spots in the back-four.
Expect Todd Kane to come back into the team at right-back in place of Angel Rangel.
Geoff Cameron struggled against Swansea, and Warburton may well replace him for Luke Amos tomorrow, with Dom Ball next to him in a familiar 4-2-3-1 formation.

In the midfield-three, Ebere Eze should start in the middle of the three with Bright Osayi-Samuel on the right. Ilias Chair is usually the third member of this trio but with Eze looking better down the middle, Warburton may opt for Jack Clarke on the left.
Up-front will be Jordan Hugill – the West Ham man now has just one goal in his last 14 Championship games, and could really do with one this weekend to set him up for a prolific end to the campaign.
