Wolves v QPR preview
Last Updated: 09/02/18 12:53pm
Romain Saiss will be assessed by Wolves for the visit of QPR as he battles a hamstring injury.
The midfielder has missed the last two games and Alfred N'Diaye has deputised for the Morocco international. Saiss is also a booking away from a two-game ban with Ruben Neves as the pair have collected nine yellow cards each.
Benik Afobe is likely to remain on the bench after making his return on loan from Bournemouth in last week's 3-0 win over Sheffield United.

QPR will be without Ryan Manning through suspension. The midfielder starts a three-match ban after he was sent off towards the end of last weekend's 1-0 win at Barnsley.
Jamie Mackie, David Wheeler and Grant Hall are long-term absentees for Rangers. But Paul Smyth is pushing to return after a quad strain.
Wolves haven't beaten QPR at Molineux in a league game since April 2009 - they've lost all three since.
The Hoops have kept one clean sheet in their last 13 league visits to Molineux, with Paddy Kenny in goal for a 3-0 win in September 2011.
Although only Matej Vydra has had a hand in more goals (19) in the Championship this season than Leo Bonatini (17), the Brazilian hasn't scored or assisted in any of his last 10 appearances.

QPR's last away Championship win against a team starting that day top came in November 2006, when they won 1-0 at Cardiff City under John Gregory.
Wolves have kept 17 clean sheets in the Championship this season, four more than they managed last season (13).
The Hoops have won three of their last five league games, as many as they'd won in their previous 19 combined.
Wolves looked a cut above the rest against Sheffield United last week, it's as simple as that. Any fears of a dip have been put to bed with back-to-back wins and they regained some of their swagger against the Blades.
QPR, meanwhile, got a very important win against Barnsley last week and will be brave enough under Ian Holloway to go for it at Molineux, but that could well be their downfall.
David Prutton predicts: 3-0 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
