QPR have one out and two struggling to make the lunchtime kick-off against Bolton.
Junior Hoilett is a big blow after the winger’s great start to the season – but is ruled out with a hamstring strain.
Andy Johnson has trained this week as he recovers from a groin problem, and there will be a late test for midfielder Ali Faurlin, but manager Harry Redknapp admits it needs him to sleep on it before he decides whether either plays a part at The Reebok.
He said: “Ali’s OK, but I still need to look at him, and the same with AJ.
“Hoilett’s struggling with a hamstring and that’s a shame, because he’s been playing really well.
“We’re not over staffed, and there will be three kids on the bench at Bolton.”
Defender Armand Traore has recovered from a knee problem, but Rs are likely to give Gary O’Neil a start instead of Hoilett with Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips taking wide roles.
