Lloyd Dyer is a doubt for Leicester as they look to get their play-off challenge back on track against QPR at the Walkers Stadium.

The winger was also a doubt for the West Brom game on Friday but was fit enough to start. However, he lasted just 53 minutes at The Hawthorns before being replaced by James Vaughan.

The on-loan Everton striker is now pushing for a start following substitute appearances in the last two matches.

Jay Spearing made his full debut in the defeat at Cardiff last week and the on-loan Liverpool midfielder could be recalled to the starting XI after finding himself back on the bench against West Brom.

Wayne Brown, Paul Gallacher and Yann Kermorgant are also hoping for recalls as the Foxes look to halt a four-game losing streak.

Carl Ikeme is set to make his final appearance for QPR.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has been a regular in the Rangers line-up since arriving on loan from Wolves, but will return to his parent club on April 6.

Serbian defender Dusko Tosic, a deadline-day loan signing from Portsmouth, is unlikely to be handed his debut as manager Neil Warnock can only name a maximum of five loanees in his matchday squad.

Matt Hill, Tamas Priskin, Jay Simpson and Adel Taarabt seem certain to be involved, so Tosic may have to wait until after Ikeme has gone back to Molineux.

Antonio German, Lee Cook and Rowan Vine all came on as late substitutes in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and will hope to feature from the start this time around.

Defender Matt Connolly is set to miss out once again with an ankle problem, while midfielders Gavin Mahon and Martin Rowlands remain sidelined with long-term knee injuries.
