Aston Villa take on Queens Park Rangers on Saturday with both sides battling against the drop.

Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers clash at Villa Park on Saturday in a huge battle at the bottom of the Premier League.

Villa have taken six points from their last 12 in the league and last time out beat fellow strugglers Reading away from home 2-1.

QPR have suddenly hit a patch of good form and have won their last two in the league, last weekend defeating Sunderland 3-1.

Villa have a number of long-term injuries including Darren Bent and Marc Albrighton, while Fabian Delph remains suspended with Karim El Ahmadi unlikely to return to fitness in time.

Harry Redknapp could welcome back Adel Taarabt, but he is a doubt, while Armand Traore is likely to return but might not start.
