QPR will have to make do without injured trio Jose Boswinga (back), Bobby Zamora (hip) and Andrew Johnson (knee) as changes are expected from the 1-1 draw against West Ham last weekend.

Samba Diakite is at the Africa Cup of Nations with Mali, whilst Junior Hoillet, Armand Traore and Esteban Granero may miss out.

MK Dons will be without Izale Mcleod, who is cup tied, and have doubts over the fitness of key men Dean Bowditch, Ryan Harley and Daniel Powell.

New loan signing Chris Hines is expected to start after being granted permission from his parent club Sheffield Wednesday, whilst there may be room for fellow loanee Zeli Ismail should Bowditch miss out.

  • QPR played MK Dons twice in the FA Cup last season. A 1-1 draw at Stadium MK forced a replay which saw Danny Gabbidon score his first goal in seven years in a 1-0 win for the Rs.
  • That victory for the Hoops was their first in the FA Cup since January 17 2001, a winless run which included losing on penalties to Vauxhall Motors in the first round in 2002.
  • Harry Redknapp (pictured right) guided Portsmouth to the cup in 2008 - his only FA Cup win as a manager.
  • All of MK Dons' victories in the cup this season have come at home - Cambridge City (6-1), AFC Wimbledon (2-1) and Sheffield Wednesday (2-0).
  • Karl Robinson's side have drawn two games away in the cup - both 0-0 against Cambridge City and Sheffield Wednesday.
  • This game marks the first time the club have reached the fourth round of the FA Cup since their inception in 2004.
