Queens Park Rangers Vs Sunderland: Confirmed Lineups

It looks to be a tricky tie between Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road today, and with both teams needing a win here's how they lineup as they go in search of one...

Martin O'Neill has named a unchanged first XI from last week's draw against Fulham, choosing to stick with the 4-4-2 formation.

Danny Rose is only fit enough to start from the bench, while Kader Mangane is still only one of the substitutes and has to await his debut for a few more minutes at least. James McClean misses out through illness.

O'Neill has named seven subs though, which sounds promising until you actually see who they are...

Sunderland (4-4-2): Simon Mignolet; Craig Gardner, John O'Shea (C), Titus Bramble, Jack Colback; Stephane Sessegnon, Alfred N'Diaye, Seb Larsson, Adam Johnson; Steven Fletcher, Danny Graham

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Kader Mangane, David Vaughan, Carlos Cuellar, Phil Bardsley, Matt Kilgallon, Danny Rose

Meanwhile Harry Redknapp has made four changes from the side that beat Southampton last time out. Julio Cesar hasn't recovered from his injury, so Rob Green comes in. Bobby Zamora returns from injury to come in for Bothroyd, while Townsend and Fabio replace Granero and Traore.

No Adel Taarabt, even on the bench, for the Hoops this afternoon.

Queens Park Rangers (4-3-3): Robert Green; Fabio, Christopher Samba, Clint Hill (C), Jose Bosingwa; Park Ji-Sung, Stephane M'Bia, Andros Townsend; Loic Remy, Junior Hoilett, Bobby Zamora

Substitutes: Brian Murphy, Nedum Onouha Jamie Mackie, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jermaine Jenas, Esteban Granero, Jay Bothroyd
