Queens Park Rangers’ 2-0 loss against Huddersfield Town has put them in a relatively strange situation.
Mark Warburton’s side currently sit 17th in the Championship table, just nine points above the relegation zone, but they are also 12 points ahead of the playoff places.
Therefore, the QPR manager will be keen to push the side up the table, rather than allowing them to be drawn into a survival fight, starting with a positive result against Swansea.
With that in mind, FFC has predicted the starting XI that Warburton could use for the game, including three changes from the Huddersfield loss.
Liam Kelly, Todd Kane and Grant Hall all keep their places in the starting lineup, despite seeing two goals go past their defensive unit against Huddersfield.
Conor Masterson comes out of the team and is replaced by Yoann Barbet, who has made 12 Championship starts this season.
Ryan Manning has made just one start in QPR’s last six games but could be reinstated into the starting lineup, replacing Lee Wallace. His cause is helped by the number 3’s calamitous defending for Huddersfield’s second, as he gave the ball away inside the box before conceding a penalty.
Luke Amos and Dominic Ball continue at the base of QPR’s midfield, with Eberechi Eze operating in the central role ahead of them.
Bright Osayi-Samuel manages to keep hold of his place on the right wing, but Ilias Chair loses his starting status on the opposite flank. The 22-year-old comes out of the team to be replaced by Jack Clarke, who will be making his first Championship start of the season if selected.
