Queens Park Rangers defensive duo Jack Robinson and Jake Bidwell face late fitness tests today ahead of this evening’s Championship clash with Sheffield United.

Robinson picked up a minor toe injury in the two nil victory over Bolton Wanderers at Loftus Road on Saturday and Bidwell jarred his shoulder in the game and both are now doubts for the trip to Bramall Lane this evening.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media to preview the game on Monday, manager Ian Holloway explained that a late decision would be made on both to see if they could come into contention for the match.

‘We`ll take a look at them both ahead of the game. Bidwell hurt his shoulder and Robbo hurt his toe. Robbo is looking the more unlikely of the two at the minute, but we`ll assess where they are and make a decision from there.’

With QPR facing three games in a week with how the fixture list has us set up, Holloway explained that he was reluctant to make too many changes but would obviously be led buy injuries as he feels momentum is building nicely in the group and he doesn’t want to disturb that.

‘We`ve had a few clear weeks in a row, so in general the lads are in a good bill of health. We`ve managed to manage the injuries we`ve had and cover them well. Mackie is out; Wheeler is out; Hall is out – they`re longer term than the others.’

He added.

‘Sylla tore his calf twice so he`s not available, but he`s getting closer. We`ve covered Smyth being out recently, but now he`s fit and back playing. Perch is fit again, so if Robbo or Bidwell are missing, then we`ve got cover.’
