Double trouble for Rangers

Joey Barton and Junior Hoilett are injury doubts for QPR ahead of the visit of Huddersfield.

Midfielder Barton suffered a thigh injury during the first half of last weekend's 3-1 win at Ipswich and winger Hoilett has missed the last two matches with a hamstring problem.

Striker Bobby Zamora (knee) could return to the squad after scoring for the reserves in a midweek friendly while full-back Luke Young (hip) also got a run-out.

Argentine midfielder Alejandro Faurlin remains a long-term absentee as he recovers from a cruciate injury.

Huddersfield's leading goalscorer James Vaughan hopes to return from injury and latest signing Nahki Wells could make his full debut.

Vaughan has been sidelined since December 21, missing the last five games due to an ankle injury, while Wells stepped off the bench to score Huddersfield's last-minute winner last week following his B#1.3million switch from Bradford.

Boss Mark Robins, who must decide whether to partner Vaughan and Wells together up front or retain Martin Paterson, is still without defender Joel Lynch, who has missed the last two games due to a hip injury.

Skipper Peter Clarke remains sidelined following knee surgery as Town chase their first league win on the road in four matches.
