QPR boss Neil Warnock is planning to make changes for his side's clash with Watford.

With Rangers now assured of survival in the Championship, Warnock wants to give some of the club's youngsters a chance so Antonio German, Angelo Balanta and Josh Parker could get run-outs.

Damion Stewart is recovering from a fractured skull and Matt Connolly is sidelined with an ankle injury so Peter Ramage continues as makeshift centre-half.

Midfield duo Martin Rowlands and Gavin Mahon are still missing with long-term knee injuries.

Any lingering fears of relegation at Loftus Road were extinguished when Sheffield Wednesday could only draw with neighbours United on Sunday.

The Owls meet fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on the final day of the season and both teams cannot finish above Rangers.

Watford will be without Heidar Helguson for the short trip.

The Icelandic striker, who has been struggling with a groin injury, is ineligible to face Rangers under the terms of his loan deal from Loftus Road.

Danny Graham is likely to start in attack with on-loan Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury tucked in behind.

Skipper Jay DeMerit came off with a knock during Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Leicester and could miss out, with Martin Taylor his likely replacement at centre-half.

Full-back Lloyd Doyley and winger Will Buckley remain doubtful with hamstring injuries.

Rookie wideman Michael Bryan put in an impressive cameo from the bench at the Walkers Stadium and will hope to be involved again.
