Seeking to make it two wins from two home games in the new Championship campaign, Queens Park Rangers welcome Blackpool to the Loftus Road Stadium on Tuesday.
The Seasiders, on the other hand, head into the game on a run of three consecutive defeats across all competitions and will be looking to end this dry spell.
Queens Park Rangers will take to the pitch without the services of Scottish goalkeeper Jordan Archer, who has been out of action since January through a long-term injury.
He is joined on the club’s injury list by the English duo of Taylor Richards and former Chelsea man Jake Clarke-Salter, who are currently recuperating from knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
Chair was a standout performer for QPR against Sunderland last time out and the Moroccan forward, who had three goal involvements in the opening three games of the season, will certainly be one to keep an eye on.
As for Blackpool, Appleton will have to make do with the absence of Keshi Anderson and defender Luke Garbutt, who have been ruled out due to MCL and hamstring injuries respectively.
Veteran defender Richard Keogh is set to sit out his fifth consecutive game after the 36-year-old came off injured in July’s 4-2 friendly defeat against Everton.
The duo of 25-year-old forward Jake Beesley and Jamaican international Kevin Stewart will also play no part in Tuesday’s game as they are currently recuperating from injuries.
Queens Park Rangers possible starting lineup:
Dieng; Kakay, Dickie, Dunne, Hamalainen; Field, Johansen; Adomah, Shodipo, Chair; Dykes
