Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald will miss the visit of rivals QPR through suspension.

McDonald is still serving the three-match ban that followed his straight red card during the 4-0 defeat to Bristol City last weekend.

Ryan Tunnicliffe stepped in as one of four changes for the midweek draw at Nottingham Forest and could continue in the starting XI.

Chelsea loanee Tomas Kalas could miss out again after he was absent against the Robins through injury. Winger Floyd Ayite and full-back Ryan Fredericks remain sidelined with ankle problems.

Fulham have won seven of their last eight league contests with west London rivals Queens Park Rangers, losing the other.

Fulham have netted 22 goals in the last eight league meetings, an average of 2.8 per game.

Whites midfielder Tom Cairney is the top chance creator in the Championship this season, making 34 chances for his team-mates. However, only one of those has led to an assist.

The last time we met QPR was in February 2016 when Fulham crushed QPR 3-1 at Loftus Road. This was of course after crushing QPR 4-0 at home earlier in the season in September 2015.

QPR will be missing Jake Bidwell, who faces a spell out after suffering a dislocated shoulder against Burton on Tuesday.

Fellow defender James Perch remains sidelined by a knee injury although he could be back in around a fortnight.

Midfielder Jordan Cousins will be assessed after missing out in midweek with a hamstring problem.

QPR are without a win in their last six visits to Craven Cottage, losing the last five in a row (D1). The R's haven't won there since January 1980 when Gary Waddock and Steve Burke scored in a 2-0 victory.

A third of QPR's goals this season have come from the penalty spot (4 out of 12), while Fulham are yet to be awarded a penalty this season.
