Premier League Preview: West Brom - QPR

The Midlands outfit has lost just one Premier League game under the stewardship of Steve Clarke and face a struggling QPR side rooted to the bottom of the top flight.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

Popov, Olsson, McAuley, Tamas
Mulumbu, Yacob
Fortune, Gera, Morrison

QPR

Cesar
Onuoha, Nelsen, M'Bia, Hill
Wright-Phillips, Faurlin, Granero, Park

West Brom is unlikely to have Billy Jones (knee) and Chris Brunt (hamstring) back in the side for QPR's visit to the Hawthorns.

Liam Ridgewell (calf), Steven Reid (hamstring) and Jerome Thomas (knee) have all also been ruled out of Saturday's clash, while Boaz Myhill (wrist) may be a substitute.

QPR defenders Anton Ferdinand and Jose Bosingwa (both hamstring) are set to undergo fitness tests before the game, but Fabio (hamstring) will miss out.

Armand Traore (ankle) also looks a doubt to start for Mark Hughes' side, while Andrew Johnson is still out with a long-term knee injury.
