Championship: QPR v Watford team news

QPR are without Benoit Assou-Ekotto for Easter Monday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Watford at Loftus Road.

The full-back serves a one-match ban after he was sent off during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at leaders Leicester.

With one eye on the play-offs boss Harry Redknapp rested the likes of Richard Dunne, Tom Carroll, Ravel Morrison and top scorer Charlie Austin against the Foxes so they could all return.

Redknapp will check the fitness of Clint Hill (ankle) and Joey Barton (thigh) while Kevin Doyle (knee) should be available but Jermaine Jenas (hamstring) is set to miss out again.

Watford central defender Marco Cassetti will return to contention following suspension.

The Italian has served a two-game ban after reaching 10 yellow cards for the season and hopes to feature, but Park Chu-Young (toe) remains sidelined.

Cristian Battocchio and Lloyd Doyley returned to the squad for Saturday's home win against Ipswich following respective knee and ankle injuries.

Battocchio, who stepped off the bench for the final 10 minutes, and Doyley, an unused substitute, are both pushing for recalls to the starting line-up as the Hornets, unbeaten in six, bid to keep their outside play-off hopes alive.
