QPR v Swansea: Match Preview; Premier League; Loftus Road; Wednesday, April 11. Kick-off: 2000

Shaun Derry is suspended following his controversial red card against Manchester United so captain Joey Barton is expected to return in midfield.

Bobby Zamora should start after being rested at Old Trafford while Shaun Wright-Phillips and DJ Campbell are both pushing for starts.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is set to recall Danny Graham and Scott Sinclair to the starting line-up after the 2-0 defeat against Newcastle. Long-term absentee Kemy Agustien remains sidelined.

Sinclair wants strong finish to season

Scott Sinclair has challenged Swansea to finish their season strongly and guarantee a mid-table finish, starting with Wednesday night's trip to QPR.

Brendan Rodgers' side have enjoyed a wonderful debut campaign in the Premier League and currently sit in 14th place - with 39 points from their 32 games.

The Swans are 11 points clear of the relegation zone but just seven behind eighth-placed Liverpool, with a game in hand.

They now have four games against sides in the bottom five and former Chelsea midfielder Sinclair wants a positive end to what has been an excellent season to date.

"We've done very well so far," he told "If we can get a few wins under our belt then we could finish mid-table.

"That would be exceptional for the club and the fans, who have been supporting us all the way.

"Hopefully we can get a good result at QPR and move on up the table."

On a personal level, Sinclair has scored seven goals this season and is aiming for double figures with six fixtures remaining.

The 23-year-old came off the bench against Newcastle last time out but is expected to start at Loftus Road.

"I've not been happy with the amount I've scored this season,” he said. “I'm always trying to get into the positions to score and be a goal threat.

"This season I've had to come up with a different game plan. I think other managers have targeted me as a goal threat, so it's harder for me to score.

"I've only got seven goals, so to get double figures would be a good return for me."
