QPR team news
The latest injury blow for QPR is that Jordy De Wijs will be sidelined until the New Year with a calf injury.
Elsewhere, Warburton has recently spoken to West London Sport about several players who he’s ‘waiting on’ ahead of tonight’s game, including Stefan Johansen, Andre Gray, Moses Odubajo and Lyndon Dykes.
The QPR boss has hinted that he’s optimistic Johansen will be available but remain coy on Dykes, Gray and Odubajo.
With Johansen possibly missing out it could give Luke Amos his second league start of the campaign. He scored the winning goal v Huddersfield Town last time out and gave a good account of himself in midfield.
Elsewhere, Charlie Austin should keep his spot in the starting XI with Gray and Dykes doubtful, with Lee Wallace also retaining his spot after an impressive return to the side.
Tonight’s game kicks off at 7:45pm and is available to watch on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.
