QPR v Norwich City preview
QPR will be unchanged for the fifth game in a row on Saturday – providing Clint Hill shakes off a stomach complaint in time. The left back (pictured) did not train today (Thursday).
Neil Warnock will resist the temptation to tinker with his winning formula against Norwich City, even though most of the players sidelined in recent weeks are in contention again.
That means no automatic return for Bradley Orr and Alejandro Faurlin, who are back after their respective calf and groin strains.
Kyle Walker – whose loan from Spurs has been extended until January – and Akos Buzsaky will continue to keep out players who started Rangers' superb unbeaten run of 10 games in the Championship.
Warnock will not rotate his team even though he has to contend with three games in six days next week – with visits to Swansea and Bristol City.
But he said he would be “very surprised” if a Rob Hulse does not feature in one or more of the games after shaking off the worst effects of an achilles injury.
Fitz Hall (hamstring) and Leon Clarke (ankle) could also be on the sidelines, but Martin Rowlands tweaked his calf in a reserve team outing and will not be risked.
“The team will be the same team. You don't change things that don't need changing and I won't rotate for the sake of rotating,” Warnock said.
“The lads who are actually in the team at the moment deserve to be in the team.
“Everybody's training now apart from Peter Ramage, although Bradley [Orr] and Ali [Faurlin] are further on in their training now.
“There may be players on the bench that I know can't do a full game, but might give me half an hour. But I won't put them on the bench if I think the injury might flare.”
