MARCUS Bent missed out on a place on the QPR bench in Saturday's win over West Brom after pointing out to the boss he had too many loan players in the line-up.
No club can name more than five loan players in any match-day squad, and Bent drew attention to the problem before kick-off.
"I had to change the team sheet at the start because I didn't realise we had too many loan players in the squad," boss Neil Warnock conceded.
"Poor old Marcus Bent said: 'I'm sorry gaffer, you've got five in, you can't have me on the bench.' I'll just have to make sure I check up a little bit before I put the team sheets in."
