QPR defender Joel Lynch is a doubt for Friday’s FA Cup game against Watford.

Lynch picked up a back injury during Saturday’s 4-3 defeat at home to Birmingham and missed Tuesday’s 2-1 loss at Bristol City.

He is still struggling with the problem and could also be unavailable for the fifth-round tie at Loftus Road.

Grant Hall has played the last three matches and recently told West London Sport he believes he has fully recovered from the knee complaint which kept him sidelined.

“I feel great. I don’t see there being any issues with my knee from now on,” R’s defender Hall said/

“Physically I feel fantastic – it’s the best I’ve felt in a long time – and now it’s just about getting back into game action.”
