DJ Campbell and Jay Bothroyd start up front for a Queens Park Rangers side missing Loic Remy for the FA Cup visit of MK Dons.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp is without new signing Loic Remy for the FA Cup fourth-round visit of MK Dons this afternoon.

The France international, who scored on his Hoops debut following his £8m arrival from Marseille, is absent with a hamstring strain.

Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell, who have both recently returned from loan spells away from Loftus Road, are handed starts up front as Redknapp makes nine changes from the side that drew with West Ham United last weekend.

Former Hammers duo Anton Ferdinand and Tal Ben Haim form the QPR centre-back partnership, while Robert Green returns in place of Julio Cesar in goal.

Park Ji-Sung, Esteban Granero and Alejandro Faurlin come into the midfield as Stephane Mbia and Adel Taarabt are rested.

MK Dons, who have had a fortnight's rest due to their fixture against Crewe Alexandra being postponed last weekend, make just one alteration from the side named last time out.

Adam Chicksen is brought in to reinforce the visiting defence as manager Karl Robinson switches to a 5-4-1 formation.

Experienced poacher Ryan Lowe, who has seven goals to his name this campaign, has the responsibility of leading the Dons' line.

QPR: Green; Fabio, Ferdinand, Ben Haim, Traore; Mackie, Faurlin, Granero, Park; Campbell, Bothroyd

MK Dons: Martin; Ostemobor, Chicksen, Lewington, MacKenzie, Kay; Williams, Potter, Bowditch, Smith; Lowe
