QPR striker Jordan Hugill ruled out of derby clash with Brentford

QPR boss Mark Warburton will be without joint top goalscorer Jordan Hugill for the west London derby against Brentford on Monday.

The on-loan West Ham striker scored his seventh Sky Bet Championship goal of the season during the 2-2 draw against Reading on Tuesday, but also picked up his fifth booking of the campaign so will be suspended for the Bees clash.

Hugill replaced Bright Osayi-Samuel in the starting line-up against Reading, so the 21-year-old winger is likely to be restored in attack.

Warburton has no other injury or suspension worries but may rotate his squad against Brentford, with Todd Kane coming on for Angel Rangel at half-time on Tuesday evening just one option.

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank may stick with an unchanged line-up for the short trip to The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium as they search for their third successive win.

Young midfielders Josh Da Silva and Bryan Mbeumo rewarded Frank’s faith in them with a goal apiece during their 3-0 win at Swansea after making an impact off the bench against Millwall last weekend.

Striker Nikos Karelis was carried off on a stretcher with an injury to his right knee as he made his debut against Millwall and will remain sidelined with his problem still unclear.

Defender Luka Racic has returned to full training but is unlikely to be risked having not played since August, while Sergi Canos (knee) is a long-term absentee.
