Team News: Brighton

Vital QPR deliver you with exclusive team news ahead of our home fixture with relegation strugglers Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Rangers have no new injury worries and should name an unchanged squad from last weekend's 1-1 draw at Hillsborough.

Matthew Rose and Paul Furlong will both have late fitness tests after picking up slight knocks against the Owls, both should be fine and the R's medical side are confident they will play a part after coming through training unscathed.

Scott Donnelly will be added to the squad after an impressive display in the Reserves defeat at home to Aldershot on Tuesday. Donnelly swung in a delightful free-kick and played a crucial part in Sammy Youssouf's equaliser before the R's gave way in the final minute to a spirited fight from the Shots.

Youssouf may also be included but Georges Santos will not be included and is attracting interest from Championship outfits Plymouth and Hull.

Gary Waddock is still unable to call upon the services of Marc Nygaard who is still recovering after injuring his hamstring in the away win at Sheffield Utd.

As for our visitors Brighton, Jason Dodd is pushing for a recall to the side after coming through over an hour of the behind-closed-doors friendly with Arsenal in midweek.

Florent Chaigneau (knee) and Federico Turienzo (hamstring) have both trained all week but neither will feature against us.

Skipper Charlie Oatway (broken ankle)will also be unavailable and is a long-term absentee for the Seagulls.

Wayne Henderson will start in goal for the south-coast outfit, Henderson was a target for Ian Holloway when he was a youth team player at Aston Villa. Since joining Brighton on loan he has claimed the number one spot in goal and has been in impressive form.

Elsewhere, Colin Kazim-Richards will be a man to watch. The player dubbed the 'Coca-Cola Kid' was signed from Bury after Albion were awarded Ł250,000 from the Coca-Cola Win a Player competition.

The youngster was the subject of various Premiership and Championship clubs interest before signing for Brighton and has hit 6 Championship goals this season.
