Rangers are likely to line up with Adel Taarabt in midfield following the Morocco international's one-match suspension after getting sent off during QPR's 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur a fortnight ago.
Meanwhile, Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is expected to start for Tony Pulis's side after a two-month absence, while Matthew Upson is likely to keep his place, despite Andy Wilkinson's return from a groin injury.

Stoke: Sorensen; Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Wilson; Walters, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington; Jerome, Crouch
