Luke Williams' side have lost just once in their last six Championship games, taking 11 points from 18 on offer.

QPR, meanwhile, have been in good form themselves, losing just two of their last 12 games as they battle to avoid the drop.


Team news

Liam Walsh West Brom

Liam Walsh is close to making a return from injury after being sidelined for three months, with Swans boss Williams saying he could be in contention to be involved.

Defender Ben Cabango's ankle injury means this game is likely to come too soon for the Wales international, while the Swans will wait on the fitness of Przemyslaw Placheta after he came off at half-time against Sheffield Wednesday on Friday.

Josh Ginnelly, Sam Parker and Bashir Humphreys are all out for the Swans.
