Connolly out for Rangers
Leaders QPR will be without Matt Connolly for the clash with Bristol City.
The centre-half is suspended after he was sent off during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Norwich so Fitz Hall or Bradley Orr will come into the back four.
Midfielder Tommy Smith should return to the side after he missed out at Carrow Road under the terms of his loan deal, with Leon Clarke likely to make way.
Norway international Petter Vaagen Moen could also be added to the squad after joining from SK Brann.
Defender Peter Ramage and midfielders Akos Buszaky and Lee Cook are still on the sidelines with knee injuries.
Neil Warnock's side remain four points clear at the top despite Saturday's setback.
Cole Skuse has added to City`s injury problems.
The midfielder was forced off early in the second half of the home victory over Cardiff and is unlikely to be included in the squad which travels to west London.
Boss Keith Millen still has defensive problems with Liam Fontaine (ankle) and Jamie McAllister (calf) out along with last season`s top goalscorer Nicky Maynard (knee).
But captain Louis Carey could be in line for a place in the squad following illness and a torn calf muscle.
Damion Stewart, Christian Ribeiro, David Clarkson and Danny Haynes are options for Millen if he wants to freshen up his starting line-up.
Caulker late show denies Hoops
Stephen Caulker denied npower Championship leaders QPR victory with a dramatic late leveller to seal a 2-2 draw for lowly Bristol City.
Rangers, who dominated the game for long periods, were leading with six minutes to go through a penalty from Adel Taarabt.
But as the game moved into stoppage time, Rangers failed to deal with Jamal Campbell-Ryce's corner and on-loan Tottenham defender Caulker crashed a header into the net.
Despite bossing the first half, Rangers somehow found themselves behind just after the interval as Clint Hill's mistake allowed Brett Pitman to convert a rare City chance.
However, Neil Warnock's side, who had lost three of their last five matches having previously gone 19 games unbeaten to set the early pace, hit straight back when Taarabt set up Alejandro Faurlin.
Taarabt was at the heart of a one-sided opening period and fizzed an early 30-yard drive just over the top.
The hosts should have taken the lead in the ninth minute when Tommy Smith, who completed his permanent switch from Portsmouth on the morning of the game, crossed for Rob Hulse but the big striker put his free header over.
Rangers had the ball in the net in the 18th minute but Jamie Mackie's celebrations were cut short by an offside trap.
David James had no chance with that effort but the 40-year-old former England goalkeeper showed his class a few moments later with a stunning point-blank save to keep out another Hulse header.
Home goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, a spectator for the first half an hour, was finally called into action when he kept out a low drive from Campbell-Ryce.
Normal service was soon resumed with Mackie and Taarabt firing wide, until City woke up and suddenly produced the move of the first half, Campbell-Ryce and Jon Stead combining to put Pitman through only for Kenny to smother his shot.
There was still time for Hulse to blaze over yet again following a goalmouth scramble before the interval.
And four minutes after the break Rangers found themselves behind courtesy of a mistake from Hill, whose weak backward header was nowhere near Kenny and allowed Pitman to stroke the ball home for his eighth goal in eight games.
Stung into action, the hosts hit back within three minutes with that man Taarabt the architect.
The Moroccan teased Cole Skuse on his way to the byline and then slipped in a perfect pull-back for Faurlin to slot home from 10 yards.
City looked like holding out for a point until the 84th minute when referee Fred Graham deemed Elliott had held back Hulse and Taarabt did the rest from the penalty spot.
But in a dramatic late twist Caulker rose highest at the far post to head in Campbell-Ryce's cross to salvage a point.
