Team line-ups: QPR v West Ham

Andy Carroll was named amongst the substitutes for West Ham’s trip to QPR this evening after missing the past four matches with a hamstring injury.

The England international had been expected to make his return against Arsenal this weekend but was deemed fit enough to be involved, while Matt Taylor missed out after suffering a minor injury.

Bobby Zamora returned to the QPR starting line-up against his former club, while Shaun Wright-Phillips and Ryan Nelsen were also drafted in.

QPR: Julio Cesar, Hill, Nelsen, Mbia, Onuoha, Wright-Phillips, Granero, Faurlin, Park, Zamora, Cisse.

Subs: Green, Diakite, Taarabt, Mackie, Ephraim, Hoilett, Ehmer.

West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid, Collins, O’Brien, Noble, Diame, Vaz Te, Nolan, Jarvis, Cole.

Subs: Henderson, McCartney, Tomkins, Carroll, Maiga, Benayoun, O’Neil.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)
