QPR V Wigan at Loftus Road Stadium : Match Preview

Duo eyeing Rangers recalls

QPR pair Nico Kranjcar and Kevin Doyle are both pushing for recalls for the return leg of their side's play-off semi-final against Wigan.


Midfielder Kranjcar and striker Doyle were both second-half substitutes in Friday's first leg, which ended in a goalless at the DW Stadium, and boss Harry Redknapp could be tempted to hand them bigger roles.


Redknapp has no major new injury worries, while Clint Hill is understood to have escaped any retrospective action after referee Mike Jones viewed video footage of the off-the-ball incident on Friday night when the defender appeared to elbow Rob Kiernan.


Rangers are unbeaten in their last four games as they bid to reach the final at Wembley on May 24.


Uwe Rosler could consider attacking changes to his Wigan side.


Latics have not scored in three of their previous five contests and battled to a 0-0 draw against Rangers at the DW Stadium on Friday with striker Marc-Antoine Fortune, who has scored just five times in 49 games, preferred to Martyn Waghorn and Nicky Maynard.


Top scorer Nick Powell was again not in the squad and the Manchester United loanee, who has had hamstring and illness problems in recent months, has not started any of the last eight fixtures.


Scott Carson has started three successive games now and appears to have dislodged Ali Al Habsi as Rosler's first-choice goalkeeper. Both Ben Watson (broken leg) and Chris McCann (knee) will not play again this season.
