West Ham is without much of their regular back four, with center back James Collins (hamstring) and left back George McCartney (knee) out injured and full-back Joey O’Brien (hamstring) doubtful, so the inexperienced Dan Potts is set to continue at left back alongside James Tomkins.
Mark Noble (calf) is set to return from injury alongside the recently recovered Mohamed Diame in central midfield in place of Jack Collison and Alou Diarra, but Yossi Benayoun (knee) is still unavailable.
Striker Modibo Maiga is at the Africa Cup of Nations with Mali, while Andy Carroll (knee) may not yet be fit, but amid strong competition for places in attack Marouane Chamakh could feature at some point.
QPR could name an unchanged back four from its recent league games, with right back Jose Bosingwa (back) and left back Armand Traore (knock) unlikely to feature, although Ryan Nelsen is still at the club despite speculation following his appointment as head coach of Toronto FC.
Shaun Derry and Stephane M’Bia could continue in center midfield, with Samba Diakite away with Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations while Esteban Granero (hamstring) is doubtful.
Strikers Bobby Zamora (hip) and Andy Johnson (knee) are long–term casualties and attacker Junior Hoilett is injured (hamstring), but newly-signed striker Loic Remy could go straight into the team.
