QPR v Atalanta: Austin sits out friendly

Neither Charlie Austin nor Leroy Fer have been included in QPR’s matchday squad for their pre-season friendly against Italian side Atalanta at Loftus Road.

Austin, who has been linked with the likes of Newcastle, and Fer, who is reportedly a target for Sunderland, have both been carrying minor injuries. Rangers say neither player is fit enough to feature in Sunday’s game.

Tjaronn Chery and James Perch start for the R’s, as do fellow new signings Ben Gladwin, Massimo Luongo and Sebastian Polter.

Trialist Grant Hall is among the Rangers substitutes, as is Oscar Gobern.

Midfielder Gobern has featured in previous pre-season friendlies, while Tottenham centre-back Hall has also joined QPR on trial.

QPR: Green, Onuoha, Hill, Phillips, Chery, Gladwin, Polter, Faurlin, Luongo, Perch, Kpekawa.
Subs: Lumley, Diakite, Hall, Grego-Cox, Comley, Blackwood, Doughty, Gobern, Emmanuel-Thomas, Henry, Furlong, Hoilett.
