Swansea left-back Neil Taylor was sidelined by a knee injury for their Barclays Premier League clash with QPR at the Liberty Stadium.

Jazz Richards moved across from right-back to cover for Taylor’s absence, with Angel Rangel returning to the starting line-up and Kemy Agustien being preferred to Mark Gower in midfield.

QPR boss Neil Warnock handed a start to Adel Taarabt as a knee injury limited Shaun Wright-Phillips to a place on the bench.

There was also a defensive reshuffle for the visitors as Clint Hill and Fitz Hall came into the side with Anton Ferdinand (hamstring) injured and Matthew Connolly and Danny Gabbidon among the substitutes.

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Williams, Caulker, Richards, Sinclair, Britton, Agustien, Allen, Routledge, Graham.

Subs: Tremmel, Dyer, Dobbie, Monk, Lita, Moore, Gower.

QPR: Kenny, Young, Hill, Hall, Traore, Mackie, Barton, Derry, Faurlin, Taarabt, Helguson.

Subs: Cerny, Orr, Gabbidon, Bothroyd, Connolly, Smith, Wright-Phillips.

Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)
