Rovers have no new injury worries ahead of Wednesday night's trip to Loftus Road.

The same squad that made the journey to the capital at the weekend are expected to travel once more as Rovers take on Queens Park Rangers.

Rovers will be without Jason Lowe (foot) and Chris Brown (knee), but whilst Chris Taylor is well on his way to a return following his groin operation, he won't be ready in time for tomorrow night's league match.

"We'll the be the same as we were on Sunday in terms of being without Chris Brown, Jason Lowe and Chris Taylor - who is coming back now which is great news for us," said Bowyer.

"Chris Brown and Jason Lowe just had reactions from the injuries that had kept them out a while. With Lowey we are just monitoring it now just to see how we can help him through.

"We always knew that there was going to be a settling in period and a time thing following his operation so it is just managing his load a little bit.

"The rest are all fine so that is good."

Jason Steele could retain his place in goal after impressing on his return to the starting XI on Sunday.

The keeper made his first league start of the season in the narrow loss at Fulham, with Bowyer pleased with his performance.

"I thought Jason Steele did ever so well on Sunday," added the Rovers boss.

"He made a decent save in the first half but then was let down by the defenders after making two great saves before Dembele was there to put it in.

"In the second half he has only the one save to make from Dembele late on so he can be really pleased with how he performed on Sunday.

"We are very fortunate that we have three very good goalkeepers. The competition is rife there and it can only be of a benefit to the team."
