QPR have been left reeling by the news that £10million signing Sandro will be out injured until 2015 but the hosts will know they have what it takes to climb out of the bottom three this side of Christmas if they can just put a run together.
As for Leicester, the memory of that famous 5-3 win against Manchester United is growing ever more distant and they must start getting some more points on the board as soon as possible.
QPR injury concerns: Eduardo Vargas may not be available due to personal reasons and Mauricio Isla is reportedly suffering from fatigue but should be an option.

Leicester injury concerns: Nigel Pearson has no fresh injury concerns at this time.
Leicester absences: Matthew Upson is out with a foot injury and Dean Hammond has a calf problem.
