Rangers duo fit despite injury scares

Manager Harry Redknapp says QPR duo Charlie Austin and Danny Simpson are fit to face Millwall on Saturday.

Both players recently returned from injury and were substituted during last weekend’s 2-1 victory against Watford.

Simpson was struggling before going off in the second half, while Austin limped off immediately after scoring Rangers’ last-minute winner.

But Redknapp said: “Charlie is okay and has trained all week. It was his first 90 minutes for a while and I think he was just tired.

“With Danny, I just put Junior Hoilett on because we were chasing the game and he [Hoilett] offers more going forward.”

Redknapp will decide whether to rest veteran defender Richard Dunne, while Jermaine Jenas is still out with a calf problem.

“Jermaine’s improving but probably needs about another week’s training,” Redknapp explained.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto is available again after serving a one-match ban.
