Team News: QPR
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the QPR manager Mark Warburton to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Luke Amos (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Coventry City
Coventry boss Mark Robins has a number of players out of action. Tyler Walker (Hip Injury) and Jodi Jones (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
