West Bromwich Albion welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Hawthorns this Saturday, with both teams desperate for points.

West Bromwich Albion take on high-flying Queens Park Rangers at the Hawthorns in a Premier League encounter on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson is expected to keep Shane Long up front alongside Simon Cox with Craig Dawson holding the midfield.

Meanwhile, Mark Hughes is likely to keep the same side that defeated Swansea City 3-0 at Loftus Road last night, which means that skipper Joey Barton should retain his place as well as midfielder Adel Taarabt.

Bobby Zamora could keep his spot up front with Jamie Mackie providing service for the former Fulham striker.

Current form:

West Brom: LDLLWL
QPR: LWLWLW

Possible lineups:

West Brom: Foster; Olsson, Shorey, Dawson, Jones; Andrews, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Scharner; Cox, Long

QPR: Kenny; Hill, Taiwo, Ferdinand, Onuoha; Diakite, Taarabt, Barton, Buzsaky; Mackie, Zamora

Sports Mole says: 1-2
