Rangers short up front

QPR remain short of strikers ahead of the clash with Yeovil at Loftus Road.

Top scorer Charlie Austin (shoulder) will be out for a few more weeks, Wolves loanee Kevin Doyle (knee) and Andy Johnson (ankle) are still sidelined and Bobby Zamora has struggled with injury all season, although he did play for the reserves in midweek.

Boss Harry Redknapp will have to assess full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto after he limped off during Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat at Brighton.

Midfielder Ale Faurlin (cruciate), winger Matty Phillips (ankle) and right-back Danny Simpson (back) remain on the sidelines.

Yeovil look set to be without Joel Grant.

The winger has been suffering with a back spasm having been caught in last weekend's 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday and he was not fit enough to be involved on Tuesday night against Ipswich and could miss out against Harry Redknappp's men.

Manager Gary Johnson revealed that the substitutions of Ishmael Miller and James Hayter at half-time against the Tractor Boys were tactical moves and the pair are available at Loftus Road.

One player who will miss out is midfielder Joe Ralls who serves the third match of a three-game suspension while Everton loanee John Lundstram has returned to his parent club.
