Confirmed team news from Loftus Road.Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City have confirmed their starting lineups for this afternoon’s early kickoff in the Premier League at Loftus Road.
Mame Biram Diouf and Peter Crouch start in attack for the visitors, in a strong starting eleven from former QPR boss Mark Hughes, though the club’s summer signing from Barcelona, Bojan Krkic, is only on the bench.
Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp includes former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand in defence, while on-loan Chilean Eduardo Vargas makes up part of a three-man attack.
Both these sides have relegation concerns this season, with QPR in particular getting off to a bad start after gaining promotion from the Championship last season, while Stoke have also started slowly this term, falling to a surprise defeat at home to Leicester City last weekend.
