QPR midfielder Jordan Cousins misses Aston Villa clash with hamstring injury

QPR will be without Jordan Cousins as they look to end a poor run of Sky Bet Championship form when they take on Aston Villa on Sunday.

The 22-year-old midfielder was forced off in Wednesday's 1-0 home defeat to Derby with a hamstring injury as Ian Holloway's Rangers slipped to a fourth straight loss.

There could be better news for Holloway if either Steven Caulker (hip) or Jack Robinson (hamstring) can prove their fitness after overcoming their respective problems.

There is an outside chance that Jamie Mackie could be involved but he is short on fitness having just returned to training following a long lay-off with an ankle issue.

Villa manager Steve Bruce has pledged to make changes after the midweek defeat at Norwich.

Forward Gabby Agbonlahor and midfielder Jack Grealish were disappointing and their positions could be under threat.

Ross McCormack and Albert Adomah, their replacements on the night, offered some improvement and could be pushing for starts.

The places of forwards Jonathan Kodjia and Jordan Ayew and midfielders Ashley Westwood and Mile Jedinak will also comelot under scrutiny by Bruce.
