QPR are currently on a good run of form as Dean Smith tries to get Villa back on track after defeat at Norwich on Tuesday.
Steve McClaren could name an unchanged QPR team for third consecutive match as they continue to be without two players.
Darnell Furlong is slowly regaining match fitness after a knee injury whilst Olamide Shodipo remains sidelined with a thigh injury.
Aston Villa will hand late fitness tests to Albert Adomah and Tammy Abraham after both were subbed at Norwich in midweek with respective knee and head concerns.
John McGinn is available to return after serving a one match ban whilst Keinan Davis is back training following a groin injury.
QPR come into this match unbeaten in their last four with three wins and a draw. They have kept three clean sheets during that run, with them all coming during their victories.
On loan Brighton striker, Tomer Hemed has netted for The Hoops in their last two games with his goals both coming in latter stages of first half.
Aston Villa meanwhile are still winless on their travels since the opening weekend, taking three draws and losses apiece. Their last two away trips however have ended in 2-1 losses, having initially taken the lead.
QPR are currently in great form and with Villa still adapting to Dean Smith’s style plus struggling on their travels, I can see a home win coming here.
Prediction: QPR 2-0 Aston Villa
Result: QPR 1-0 Aston Villa
