Match between Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers to be played on Saturday 31st January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke.

Queens Park Rangers head to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday to take on Stoke City.

Harry Redknapp’s side had a weekend off while others battled it out in the fourth round of the FA Cup so QPR should be fresh for this vital encounter.

QPR are currently 19th in the Premier League, one point clear of safety, but it will not be easy to take anything off Mark Hughes’ side.

The Potters must make do without Bojan Krkic, who suffered a season-ending injury against Rochdale, but Stoke will be confident after that 4-1 win and due to the fact they are currently 10th in the table.

Yun Suk-young is seeking match fitness following an ankle injury while Armand Traore is out with a toe injury.

Summer signing Sandro remains side-lined due to a knee problem and Alejandro Faurlin is a long-term absentee.

Richard Dunne has a groin injury but has a 75 per cent chance of being fit so with all that in mind, below is the side we predict QPR will play this weekend:

Predicted Queens Park Rangers starting line-up: Green, Isla, Caulker, Onuoha, Hill, Vargas, Barton, Henry, Fer, Austin, Zamora
