It’s a promotion clash in the Championship as third-placed QPR host Reading at Loftus Road, with the visitors currently residing in sixth.
Both sides were relegated from the Premier League last season, but have regrouped well and are in with a chance of an immediate return to the English top tier.
The hosts are hoping to welcome back experienced midfielder Yossi Benayoun, with the former Chelsea and Liverpool man missing the last four matches due to injury.
Manager Harry Redknapp is also expected to draft in Manchester United loanee Will Keane for this important tie with the Royals.
As for the away team, they will put Alex Pearce back into the starting XI after the centre-back’s red card received in the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday was rescinded, whilst midfielder Danny Guthrie is also pushing for a recall.
The two teams drew 1-1 at the Madejski Stadium earlier in the campaign and also played out two more draws when they met in the Premier League last term – so a point each looks likely.
If the Rs were to win they would be just a point off second-placed Burnley with a game in hand, whilst victory for Reading would see them edge away from Brighton and Hove Albion into the play-off zone.
The home team have the best defensive record in the division having only conceded 21, whilst they also have the joint best home record along with leaders Leicester City, although Nigel Adkins’ side have won two of their last three away ties.
