Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has made one change to his starting lineup for today's clash against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

Jayson Leutwiler is handed an opportunity in the capital, with David Raya swapping places with the Canadian on the bench.

Leutwiler starts for the second time in the Championship, with his only other start this season incidentally coming against the west Londoners at Ewood Park earlier in the campaign, where he kept a clean sheet.

Aside from that it's the same outfield 10 that started and beat Nottingham Forest at The City Ground last weekend.

Rovers are hunting a third straight win, and Joe Rothwell will also be hoping to score for a third straight game having opened the scoring against Derby and Forest in the last couple of outings.

The hosts include playmaker Luke Freeman in their starting XI, with towering frontman Tomer Hemed leading the line for John Eustace's outfit.

On loan from Burnley, Nakhi Wills starts on the bench, joining powerful striker Matt Smith as an option as a substitute.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.

Queens Park Rangers: Lumley, Furlong, Freeman, Cousins, Scowen, Manning, Hemed, Osayi-Samuel, Luongo, Wszolek, Lynch.

Substitutes: Ingram, Cameron, Eze, Smith, Wells, Walker, Tilt.

Rovers: Leutwiler, Bennett (c), Lenihan, Williams, Bell, Evans, Travis, Rothwell, Dack, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Raya, Nyambe, Rodwell, Smallwood, Mulgrew, Brereton, Nuttall.
