Brentford v QPR line-ups: Bees duo return, no Robinson as Rangers make six changes

Lewis Macleod and John Egan return to the Brentford side for the derby at Griffin Park.

QPR are without Jack Robinson and make six changes, with young defender Osman Kakay making his first league start for the club and his first senior appearance of the season.

Robinson has been ill and his absence is a blow for Rangers, who were already without the injured Joel Lynch and Grant Hall and the suspended Nedum Onuoha.

Alex Baptiste, who has been nursing a knee problem, has been passed fit to play. Jake Bidwell captains Rangers against his former club.

Matt Smith is among those dropping out of the R’s starting line-up. Luke Freeman and Josh Scowen are recalled, as are Paul Smyth, Idrissa Sylla and Pawel Wszolek.

Brentford: Bentley, Dalsgaard, Mepham, Egan, Barbet, Jozefzoon, Woods, Sawyers, Canos, Macleod, Watkins.
Subs: Daniels, Bjelland, Yennaris, Maupay, McEachran, Mokotjo, Clarke.

QPR: Ingram, Kakay, Furlong, Baptiste, Bidwell, Scowen, Luongo, Freeman, Smyth, Sylla, Wszolek.
Subs: Smithies, Perch, Cousins, Manning, Osayi-Samuel, Smith, Eze.
