Burton Albion will be without the services of the suspended Tom Flanagan for the visit of Queens Park Rangers.

Defenders Damien McCrory and John Brayford miss out and there are doubts over Ben Turner and Chris O’Grady.

Queens Park Rangers have doubts over midfielder Jordan Cousins (hamstring) and striker Sebastian Polter.

Yeni Ngbakoto could return after a thigh problem but James Perch (knee), Ben Gladwin and Jamie Mackie (both ankle) remain sidelined.

The match sees QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink return to the Pirelli Stadium for the first in a competitive game since leaving the Brewers last December.
