Queens Park Rangers will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run in the EFL Championship to four games when they host Luton Town at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The Hoops drew 1-1 last time out against Blackpool with Chris Willock getting on the scoresheet, they currently occupy the final play-off spot. The Hatters, who are 11th in the table, lost 1-0 to Stoke City.

Team news

QPR will be without Andre Gray, who is nursing a hamstring injury. Goalkeeper Semy Dieng is available after contracting COVID-19 as are Lee Wallace and Sam Field who  are back from long-term injuries.

Lyndon Dykes and Ilias Chair will also be assessed, with the latter only just returning from international duty.

Luke Berry was scheduled to return from a knee injury following the international break, but the Luton midfielder is a doubt to make the trip to London. Fred Onyedinma could be recalled to start in a three-run midfield.

Predicted lineups

Queens Park Rangers: Dieng; Dickie, Dunne, Barbet; Adomah, Dozzell, Johansen, Odubajo; Chair, Willock, Dykes

Luton Town: Sluga; Naismith, Bradley, Burke; Bell, Mpanzu, Osho, Bree; Onyedinma; Cornick, Adebayo

Ones to watch

Lyndon Dykes (Queens Park Rangers)

With five goals in 11 appearances this season, the scoring burden will be placed on the Australian, especially with Gray out and Chair undergoing evaluation prior to the match.

Allan Campbell (Luton Town)

He returned to the starting line-up for the first time since suffering ligament damage against Blackburn Rovers and was easily the Hatters' best player in the defeat to Stoke, especially defensively, closing down areas of the pitch well while showing a real energy and enthusiasm to his play.

Previous meetings

QPR did the double over Luton last season in dominant fashion, outscoring the Hatters in the two matches.

In January, goals from Charlie Austin and Macaulay Bonne gave the Hoops a 2-0 victory at Kenilworth Road. 

Four months later, QPR ran out 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture. Austin opened the scoring before Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall leveled two minutes before halftime.

Second-half goals from Stefan Johansen and Albert Adomah proved to be the difference for the Londoners.
