QPR are expected to field a strong side against MK Dons, with Federico Macheda tipped to make his debut for Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers are expected to field a strong side against MK Dons on Saturday as the two sides prepare to go head to head in the FA Cup third round tie on Saturday.

The West London side travel to the League One outfit, with Manchester United loan singing Federico Macheda tipped to start his first match for Rangers.

Neil Warnock's team face a tough test against Karl Robinson's men as they can no longer rely on captain Joey Barton - the 29-year-old serves a three-match ban from getting sent off against Norwich City on Monday.

Armand Traore and Fitz Hall remain doubts for the London side, but DJ Campbell is expected to partner Macheda up front.

Current Form:

Queens Park Rangers: LLLDLL

Possible lineups:

MK Dons: Martin; Smith, Lewington, Doumbe, MacKenzie; Gleeson, Potter, Bowditch, MacDonald; Balanta, Ibehre

Queens Park Rangers: Kenny; Hill, Gabbidon, Ferdinand, Young; Smith, Derry, Faurlin, Mackie; Macheda; Campbell

Sports Mole says: 1-2
