Mark Hughes's first home match in charge of Queens Park Rangers is a FA Cup replay against League One MK Dons.

Mark Hughes's first home match in charge of Queens Park Rangers will come on Tuesday evening when MK Dons visit Loftus Road in a round three FA Cup replay.

The visiting Dons will feel aggrieved to be playing this fixture, have led for a long time in the first match at Stadium MK, only for Heidar Helguson to score a stoppage-time equaliser for QPR.

Hughes will have to make do without the services of captain Joey Barton, who is serving the final game of his three-match suspension. Fellow central-midfielder Alejandro Faurlin will also be absent with a knee injury.

Dons boss Karl Robinson has a near fully-fit squad to call upon, which means Dean Bowditch is likely to continue up front.

The winner of this tie will host Chelsea.

Current form:


Possible lineups:

QPR: Kenny; Young, Ferdinand, Hill, Traore; Wright-Phillips, Derry, Taarabt, Mackie; Helguson, Campbell.

MK Dons: Martin; Smith, Kouo-Doumbe, Williams, Lewington; Potter, Gleeson; Powell, Chadwick, Bowditch; Ibehre.

Sports Mole says: 2-0
