QPR sweating on duo

Junior Hoilett and Andrew Johnson are injury doubts for QPR ahead of the visit of Brighton.

Winger Hoilett limped off against Birmingham on Saturday with a slight hamstring problem and striker Johnson missed the 1-0 win over his old club with a knee injury.

Matt Phillips came on for his Rangers debut in Hoilett's place having recovered from a broken arm so he could start.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto was on the bench following his move from Tottenham and will be pushing to make his debut but fellow deadline-day signing Niko Kranjcar is expected to miss out again with a groin problem.

Brighton will be without top scorer Leonardo Ulloa when they make the trip.

The Argentinian starts a three-match ban after he was sent off for a reckless high challenge in Sunday's goalless draw at Reading.

With Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) still out, Ashley Barnes will have to lead the line despite having only just recovered from a hip injury.

Andrea Orlandi (knee) is also missing and fellow midfielder Liam Bridcutt (hernia) is unlikely to be risked, but right-back Bruno is fit after a hamstring injury and could be added to the squad along with winger Craig Conway, who has joined on loan from Cardiff.
