Neil Warnock's men looking to bounce back from their defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday, but will have their work cut out against the Black Cats



Young, Hall, Gabbidon, Traore
Wright-Phillips, Barton, Faurlin, Taarabt
Mackie, Helguson


Bardsley, Brown, Bramble, O’Shea
Larsson, Cattermole, Colback, Richardson Sessegnon

Paddy Kenny is available for QPR and could come in for Radek Cerny, who produced some top drawer saves against Manchester United but allowed a timid Michael Carrick shot to go in at his near post.

Anton Ferdinand misses the match against his former club due to a hamstring injury and could be replaced by Fitz Hall, while defensive partner Danny Gabbidon is a doubt with a gashed leg. Striker Jay Bothroyd is also a concern for the hosts with a knee injury.

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is without Fraizer Campbell, Michael Turner, Craig Gordon and Simon Mignolet due to injuries, but otherwise has no concerns.

  • QPR have not managed a win in the Premier League in a month, with their last victory coming against Stoke in November.
  • Sunderland have only won a single Premier League match away from the Stadium of Light this season.
  • The Hoops have managed to clinch all three points at home on only one occasion this season.
  • The Black Cats have won all of their last three encounters with the hosts, and claimed a 2-1 win when the sides last met at Loftus Road in 2007.

  • Both teams have achieved just one victory in their last seven fixtures.
  • Sebastian Larsson has scored more free kicks over the past five seasons than any other Premier League player.
  • Shaun Wright-Phillips has had more shots in the Premier League without scoring than any other player.
