Queens Park Rangers earned a good point against Swansea City, which will help them get over the disappointing loss at the hands of Huddersfield Town.
They will now be looking to translate that level of performance into a victory, as they face another struggling team in Stoke City, who are currently five points behind QPR.
Therefore, it will likely seem there is more at stake for the Rs in this match, as they aim to break away from the pack at the bottom of the table.
With that in mind, FFC has predicted the lineup that Mark Warburton will use for the game, including three changes from the draw against Swansea.
Liam Kelly has kicked on in the QPR goal, having now reached 11 Championship starts, so he continues between the sticks here.
Angel Rangel and Yoann Barbet both impressed against Swansea, but BBC Sport suggested the former could be rested, while the same fate could well befall Barbet – this could see Todd Kane and Conor Masterson take their places in the starting lineup, with Masterson starting the first two Championship games of the month.
It isn’t all change in the backline though, as Grant Hall and Ryan Manning stay in the team, with the latter being QPR’s highest-rated player, alongside Bright Osayi-Samuel, on WhoScored with 7.5.
Dominic Ball and Geoff Cameron offered a solid base for the midfield against Swansea, so could be given a chance to do the same thing in the Stoke game.
Marc Pugh put in a good performance against Swansea, making two key passes and two dribbles, but could come back out of the team to be replaced by Ilias Chair, who has made 20 starts and seven substitute appearances.
Eberechi Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel also keep their places in the Rangers team playing behind Jordan Hugill, who starts despite having just one goal in his last 14 appearances.
