Nerves got the better of QPR striker Will Keane in the 3-1 defeat against Reading on Sunday – but the Manchester United loanee looks likely to get a second go at Charlton today.
Keane was taken off on 57 minutes after a promising debut against the Royals when he stepped into the breach left by injured Andy Johnson.
However, manager Harry Redknapp sees other opportunities for the England U21 player, who targeted 12 first-team appearances for Rangers after he arrived in January’s transfer window.
Redknapp said: “Will cramped in both calves and it might have been a bit of nervous tension. Maybe, he was a bit uptight before the game.
“He did OK, and there is more to come from him.”
Rangers are missing Joey Barton (suspended) and injured trio Johnson, Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips for the trip to the Valley.
Redknapp added: “We’ve got one or two knocks, but we’ve got the likes of Tom Carroll, JJ (Jermaine Jenas) and Karl Henry who can play where Joey does in midfield.”
