QPR are sweating on one from Nedum Onuoha and Mauricio Isla being fit to face Tottenham and plug the right-back spot.

Head coach Chris Ramsey indicated latest find Darnell Furlong won’t feature against the second north London side to fetch up to Loftus Road this week, and prays Onuoha’s horrible gash sustained in the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday will still allow him to feature.

Onuoha accidentally clashed with team-mate Steven Caulker as both went for a header, and with Isla struggling with a bad knee - options are thin on the right side of defence.

Ramsey said: “Nedum’s got deep cut in his face, and as for playing I will find out definitively after training.”

Adel Taarabt’s groin injury also rules him out, but Ramsey intends to give midfielder Sandro more time against his former club than he got in his comeback match after injury against the Gunners.

Ramsey added: “His match conditioning isn’t where it should be, but hopefully, he will last a bit longer, and will want to prove a point against his old club.”

The QPR coach also faces the irony of trying to stop sensation Harry Kane in the only Premier League clash of the day.

It was Ramsey amongst others who brought Kane on when both were at Tottenham.

However, knowledge of the striker tipped for England honours isn’t the same as stopping him, as Ramsey pointed out by comparing himself to Superman’s biggest foe.

“I’m not Kryptonite to stop them - I haven’t got any special formulas,” the coach said. “I know their strengths. But we need to focus on our players’ strengths to deal with them.

“I’d like to take the first hour against Arsenal and replicate that, and our levels of concentration need to be high. We couldn’t keep that level of focus and it cost us.”
