QPR defender Gabbidon ruled out

QPR defender Danny Gabbidon has failed in his attempt to be fit for Saturday’s game against Blackburn.

Gabbidon is still nursing the hamstring problem that ruled him out of the 6-0 defeat at Fulham prior to the international break.

Matt Connolly, who also missed that game after suffering a twisted ankle in training, faces a late fitness test and his chances of being available are rated at 50-50.
