QPR striker Rowan Vine is hoping to be named in Jim Magilton's starting Xl against Chelsea in the Carling Cup.
Vine was handed his first league start in the win over Cardiff at the weekend having figured largely as a substitute throughout the early part of the season.
The 27-year-old is hoping his performance was enough to warrant a second start when Rangers travel to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Although conceding that competition is rife, Vine believes his contribution on Saturday, combined with his performance in the previous round against Accrington will stand him in good stead.
"I got my first league start of the season on Saturday and I started the last round tie against Accrington, so it would be nice to see my name in the starting eleven when the team sheets are handed out," he told Skysports.com.
"Every player is looking forward to it though and everyone wants to play, but I'd love to be given the nod again tomorrow night."
The last time the Blues were beaten at home was against Burnley almost a year ago, when the cup specialists defeated the London club on penalties.
Despite their otherwise solid record, Vine believes Rangers are more than capable of springing an upset.
"You always see upsets occur in the cup competitions and the Carling Cup especially tends to see the big sides resting a couple of players here and there, which obviously gives sides like us a big boost when you aren't coming up against the likes of John Terry and Didier Drogba," he said.
"They've got a lot of games at the moment, with their European adventures, so they will probably change it a bit.
"We've performed well against Premier League opposition over the last couple of years, so we will certainly be believing that we can get something out of the tie."
