Stoke City visit Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday night hoping that their mini run of form will continue.

Stoke’s form has improved slightly over the last couple of games, with a win over Burnley and a well deserved draw away at Leeds last weekend and will go into Wednesday’s game at Loftus Road full of confidence that they can come away with some points.

On the injury front, Paul Gallagher is still struggling with a back injury that forced him to be substituted during the game at Elland Road and Josip Skoko is still a doubt after failing a pre match fitness test before the same game. But it looks likely that Luke Chadwick will return and Sam Bangoura and Dave Brammer are both fit again.

The news from QPR is that Kevin Gallen is still suspended as he serves the second game of a three match ban and Matthew Rose remains doubtful with an ankle injury, so QPR should name the same side that drew away at Cardiff at the weekend.
