Predicted Burnley and QPR line-ups: Shackell and Zarate to start

Burnley

Match between Burnley and Queens Park Rangers to be played on Saturday 10th January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.

Burnley take on Queens Park Rangers at Turf Moor on Saturday in a match vital for both sides.

Sean Dyche’s men are currently 19th in the Premier League and Harry Redknapp’s side are two points and three places ahead of them.

QPR suffered the embarrassment of crashing out of the FA Cup to League One Sheffield United last weekend and they will want to turn things around as soon as possible, with Burnley always tough opposition regardless of their current position.

Burnley injury concerns: Jason Shackell has a calf injury but has a good chance of being back for this match while Michael Duff is struggling to be fit.

Burnley absences: Kevin Long is out with a knee injury and Matt Taylor has an Achilles problem. Stephen Ward is also out with an ankle injury.

QPR injury concerns: Yun Suk-young has an ankle injury but is expected to be back.

QPR absences: Sandro remains out with a serious knee injury and Adel Taarabt is also unavailable. Alejandro Faurlin is a long-term absentee.

Predicted starting line-ups:

Burnley – Heaton, Trippier, Keane, Shackell, Mee, Boyd, Jones, Marney, Arfield, Ings, Barnes

QPR – Green, Isla, Dunne, Caulker, Suk-young, Vargas, Henry, Barton, Fer, Zarate, Austin
