Confirmed: Crystal Palace and QPR line-ups

Here is how Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers will line up this afternoon:

Crystal Palace welcome Queens Park Rangers to Selhurst Park in a match that many would have earmarked earlier in the season as a clash between relegation candidates.

As it is, Alan Pardew’s arrival at the Eagles has seen them climb up to 12th in the Premier League, a full eight points ahead of 18th-placed QPR.

Chris Ramsey’s side are three points clear of safety with 10 games remaining and this is the kind of match they will want to take something from if possible.

Palace will have other ideas, although their home form is less than flattering and QPR’s away record against today’s opponents is good.

That said, today’s visitors have won just once in 13 away games in the league this season so it will take an almighty effort to make that two from 14.

A win for Palace will take them just two points behind Newcastle while a QPER victory will see Ramsey’s men climb out of the bottom three, at least temporarily.
