QPR come into the game having won their previous two Professional Development League fixtures, defeating title hopefuls Cardiff City 2-0 before a dominant 4-1 win over Millwall.

In their previous outing, the Rs were eliminated from the Premier League Cup in the last 16, suffering a 4-2 defeat to Premier League 2 side West Bromwich Albion.

Kris O'Leary

Swansea City Under-23s coach Kris O’Leary: “It’s an opportunity for the boys to experience what it’s like playing in the Stadium and they need to be better than they were last time out.

“For some players, it might be their one and only chance to play there, we don’t know. It’s an opportunity which a lot of people would love to experience.

“It’s a fantastic arena to play in and a fantastic pitch as well. It’s part of their development, they’ve got to earn the right to play there with the next few days of training.”
