Preview: QPR XI vs Reading – latest team and injury news, predicted lineup

Queens Park Rangers have won three of their last four in the Championship and will be looking to build on that when they head to Reading this afternoon.

Mark Warburton’s side pulled off a stunning comeback in midweek – after going behind 2-0 early in the first half to Millwall, they fought back after the break to clinch all three points.

That edged them into the top half.

But what sort of lineup could we see at the Madejski Stadium? Here’s our predicted QPR XI ahead of kickoff…

There could be as many as three changes to the side that saw off the Lions on Wednesday evening.

Warburton is likely to stick with his tried and tested 3-5-2 formation, as well as the back three that started at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, which means Yoann Barbet partners Rob Dickie and the match-winning Jordy de Wijs in front of Seny Dieng.

However, the first alteration could come at right wing-back in a move that sees Todd Kane axed from the starting lineup. He has been underwhelming in recent matches – failing to manage above a 6.31 WhoScored rating in their last three outings – so he could be replaced by Osman Kakay, rather than Albert Adomah, who came off the bench for him in midweek.

Lee Wallace keeps his place on the other flank.

In midfield, we could see the final two changes, as Geoff Cameron is dropped in favour of Dominic Ball. The 25-year-old dynamo has started 22 times this season, but has only played a total of 16 minutes since the Barnsley defeat five games ago. His introduction allows a rest for the veteran Rs skipper.

Fulham loanee Stefan Johansen is in line to keep his spot over Sam Field, despite the West Brom man pushing for more game time.

Whilst Illas Chair, who provided an assist for de Wijs’ equaliser from the bench, is favoured to Chris Willock in the no.10 role.

Both Charlie Austin and Lyndon Dykes should keep their partnership going, meaning there is no place for Macauley Bonne this time out.
