Julio Cesar looks set to miss out once again for QPR meaning Robert Green will continue to deputise in goal. Jose Bosingwa (muscle injury) and Christopher Samba (illness) should return after missing the game against Arsenal.
Newcastle will travel to west London without Moussa Sissoko (ankle) and Shola Ameobi (foot), but could have Sylvain Marveaux available. Mathieu Debuchy is also back from suspension, while fellow full-backs Massadio Haidara and Davide Santon could be fit.
Harry Redknapp pre-game…“If they practised more rather than tweeted they would be better footballers. Next year lots of things have to change here – the whole discipline of the club. I have pussyfooted around with some of them because they are here and you need to get the best out of them.”
Alan Pardew pre-game…“He (Mike Ashley) could turn around and say, ‘sorry Pards, see you later and thanks very much. He could do that if we don’t make it, he could do that if we make it. Unfortunately for me I have to accept that decision.”
Match Statistic: The last three meetings between the two sides in the Premier League have yielded just two goals.
Prediction: QPR 1-1 Newcastle United
