Matt Phillips has been named on the bench at MK Dons this afternoon as QPR look to build on last week’s win over Birmingham City.
The R’s winger drops out of the starting XI while Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has drafted in Conor Washington, Ben Tozser and Nasser El Khayati in Buckinghamshire.
Alejandro Faurlin has shaken off a thigh complaint but is only fit enough for a place among the substitutes for the clash with the relegation-threatened Dons.
Junior Hoilett is missing from the squad after his goalscoring exploits against Gary Rowett’s men last Saturday.
The only previous meeting between these two sides at Stadium MK was the 1-1 stalemate in the FA Cup third round in January 2012.
