Neil Warnock has to change his starting line-up for the first time when Swansea visit Loftus Road.

Centre-half Damion Stewart serves a one-match ban following his red card during Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat at Reading - Warnock's first loss since taking over as Rangers manager.

Warnock will probably recall Peter Ramage at right-back and move Matt Connolly into the centre alongside Kaspars Gorkss.

There will also be a change on the bench after left-back Gary Borrowdale joined Charlton on a month's loan.

Warnock has no new injury worries but will once again be without long-term absentees Gavin Mahon and Martin Rowlands (both knee).

Striker Marcus Bent looks set to be the odd man out again due to the five-loanee rule.

Andrea Orlandi could be added to the Swansea squad for the trip to Paulo Sousa's former club QPR.

Orlandi, who has been missing for the last four weeks with a hamstring injury sustained against Derby, should be available having returned to training.

The midfielder took a full part in Thursday and Friday's practice and suffered no reaction to the problem so may be fit enough to take a place on the bench.

Sousa, who managed Rangers for four months last season, has the luxury or no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the clash with Neil Warnock's side.

Striker Gorka Pintado is pushing for a start having been on the bench for the 2-0 defeat to West Brom on Tuesday after returning from a four-game ban, while defender Garry Monk and striker Nathan Dyer are both fine having come through midweek unscathed after previously suffering from calf and ankle problems.
