QPR manager Mark Hughes will check with Anton Ferdinand before deciding whether to play him in their FA Cup tie with Chelsea later this month.

The 26-year-old helped his side set up the mouth-watering tie with their west London rivals by defeating then MK Dons 1-0 in their third round replay on Tuesday. The Hoops won the league clash between the sides at Loftus Road, but the match is remembered for allegations that John Terry aimed racial abuse at Ferdinand. Terry has always denied the allegations.

Asked whether he had any concerns about playing Ferdinand against Chelsea, Hughes said: "No. Obviously I will speak with all the players leading into the game and get an understanding of where they are in their mind in terms of the mentality that you need to go into that game."
