Midfielder Michael Doughty starts for QPR at Huddersfield, replacing Karl Henry.
Henry is unavailable for the match because he is expecting the birth of his child and Rangers are also without Clint Hill and Sebastian Polter, who have been laid low by illness.
Polter’s absence means summer signing Tyler Blackwood is among the substitutes.
QPR: Green, Perch, Onuoha, Hall, Konchesky, Faurlin, Doughty, Luongo, Phillips, Chery, Austin.
Subs: Smithies, Furlong, Kpekawa, Comley, Hoilett, Emmanuel-Thomas, Blackwood.
