Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday night's match between Queens Park Rangers and Bournemouth in the Championship.

Queens Park Rangers can get back to winning ways in the Championship when Bournemouth visit Loftus Road on Tuesday night.

Harry Redknapp's side fell three points behind leaders Leicester City after suffering just their second defeat of the season at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

Despite the defeat, Redknapp should stick with a similar side against the Cherries, with Junior Hoilett and Karl Henry the two most likely to force their way into the starting lineup.

Visitors Bournemouth have gone six games without a win and a trip to West London is perhaps the most daunting of all this season.

Manager Eddie Howe could welcome back Lewis Grabban in attack if he recovers from illness after missing Saturday's 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

On-loan Arsenal defender Nico Yennaris is also pushing for a start after failing to come off the bench against the Seagulls.
