Team News

  • Keeper Julio Cesar was subbed off in the first half at Sunderland with a groin problem and is a doubt for the weekend, meaning Rob Green should deputise in goal.
  • The defence is likely to remain unchanged after a clean sheet last time out, while Diakite and Mbia are both likely to keep their places in front of the back four ahead of Faurlin and Park Ji-Sung.
  • Redknapp's main problem comes in attack, however, with Cisse set to be the only fit striker for the foreseeable future, with Wright-Phillips and Hoilett hoping to get chances in support of the lone front man.
  • A knock to Enda Stevens early on against Reading could see the young full-back miss out as Villa's defensive options whittle down, with Vlaar still a doubt.
  • Lichaj could come into the side in place of the Irishman in what may be the only change from the 1-0 win at Villa Park.
  • All of the media attention, however, will again be on whether Darren Bent makes the squad or not having been dropped since his return from injury, with Lambert's comments suggesting that he will stick with the same options until the team's form worsens.

Prediction

  • Harry Redknapp's first home game in charge of QPR couldn't be much more important, with Villa able to stretch an 11-point gap over the hosts with an away win.
  • A victory on the road, however, is something that Lambert has masterminded just once this season, with the win at Sunderland the only 3 points the side have picked up on their travels in their last 15 attempts in the league.
  • QPR haven't won at home this season though, scoring just 6 in their last 8 league matches at Loftus Road, though the Redknapp effect could play a big part to stir the home supporters come Saturday afternoon.
