Ferdinand returns for Spurs clash

Rio Ferdinand and Mauricio Isla came into the QPR starting line-up as head coach Chris Ramsey took on former club Tottenham.

The pair replaced Darnell Furlong and Junior Hoilett, while Nedum Onuoha was passed fit to play despite sustaining a nasty cut to his cheek in Wednesday’s defeat to Arsenal.

Subs: Rose, Soldado, Lamela, Vorm, Dembele, Fazio, Stambouli.
