Unchanged XI for QPR test

Baggies set for R's battle at Loftus Road

ALBION head coach Alan Irvine named an unchanged starting XI for today’s Barclays Premier League trip to QPR (3pm ko).

The Baggies line up with the same side who disposed of local rivals Villa last weekend, Craig Gardner netting the second-half winner in a 1-0 triumph.

Irvine makes one change on the bench, however, with Claudio Yacob replacing Sebastian Blanco.

Captain Chris Brunt and striker Victor Anichebe, both of whom striving for full fitness, did not make the journey to west London.

Albion: Foster, Wisdom, Lescott, McAuley, Pocognoli, Gardner, Dorrans, Morrison, Varela, Sessegnon, Ideye.

Subs: Myhill, Baird, Dawson, Gamboa, Yacob, Mulumbu, Berahino.

QPR: Green, Onuoha, Caulker, Dunne, Suk-Young, Vargas, Barton, Henry, Fer, Austin, Zamora.

Subs: McCarthy, Ferdinand, Hill, Phillips, Mutch, Kranjcar, Hoilett.

Referee: Craig Pawson (Yorkshire)
