Team News

  • Harry Redknapp has refused to confirm whether Jose Bosingwa, who refused to be a substitute recently against Fulham, will ever feature under him again, but the Portuguese will certainly not be in his plans in the near future.
  • The back four could remain unchanged, with Anton Ferdinand covering at right-back and Fabio keeping his place instead of Traore, who remains a doubt.
  • Wright-Phillips could return to the starting XI at the expense of Granero to allow Taarabt to move back into a more central role.
  • Ben Foster made a return to action in goal against Norwich and should keep his place ahead of Boaz Myhill.
  • Liam Ridgewell is back fit but may have to be patient as Goran Popov delivered a superb cross for Romelu Lukaku's winner at the weekend.
  • The Belgian should keep his place having stated that he hopes to remain at West Brom until the end of the season rather than return to Chelsea in January.

Prediction

  • QPR haven't beaten West Brom in their three Premier League encounters, including a 3-2 defeat earlier in the season, though the game at Loftus Road in the previous campaign ended in a draw.
  • The Baggies returned to winning ways after four games without a victory at the weekend but have only won twice on the road this season and will be wary of a QPR side that will want to build on their first home win of the season.
  • QPR continue to struggle for goals and usually require inspiration from Adel Taarabt, so the Moroccan could be the key man in this one.
