Match to be played on Sunday 5th October 2014 at 16:15. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London.
Sam Allardyce’s side had previously taken four points from two matches, with a victory over Liverpool the highlight of their campaign to date.
QPR on the other hand have not won in three league matches, losing 2-1 to Southampton last weekend and currently residing in the bottom three.
West Ham injury concerns: Mark Noble has a calf injury but he has a 75 per cent chance of being fit for this match.
West Ham absences: Cheikhou Kouyate is side-lined until November with a groin injury. Joey O’Brien is not expected to be back until the middle of this month while Andy Carroll is a long-term absentee.
QPR injury concerns: Sandro is a doubt with a head injury although he has a strong chance of taking part on Sunday. Jordon Mutch and Joey Barton should be back this month but this game could be too soon for them.
QPR absences: Alejandro Faurlin is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

West Ham United – Adrian, Tomkins, Reid, Cresswell, Demel, Amilfitano, Poyet, Song, Downing, Sakho, Valencia
