Ian Holloway has made one change for his visit to the north-east to take on Sunderland.

Jack Robinson, who has been "the first name on the team-sheet" according to Holloway, misses out after breaking his hand in training.

He is replaced by Republic of Ireland under-21 star Ryan Manning, who makes just his second league start of the season.

The midfielder looked in fine form while on international duty, and has been rewarded with a place in the Hoops team.

Elsewhere, Massimo Luongo comes straight into the starting XI after a tiring international double-header against Syria, while Idrissa Sylla retains his place up front.

QPR team : Smithies, Bidwell, Lynch, Freeman, Scowen, Mackie, Manning, Baptiste, Luongo, Wszolek, Sylla.

Subs: Lumley, Furlong, Washington, Smith, Ngbakoto, OSayi-Samuel, Wheeler.
