QPR winger Junior Hoilett has recovered from his hamstring injury and should feature against Leeds United on Saturday.
Hoilett limped out of Rangers’ 1-0 Championship win over Ipswich two weeks ago, missing the league win over Bolton and the Capital One Cup defeat to Swindon Town.
However, the winger trained with the first team on Friday morning, and the 23-year-old is expected to travel with the squad to Elland Road.
Meanwhile, new signing Matt Phillips will see a specialist today as he continues his recovery from a broken arm.
Phillips, who joined QPR on a four-year deal from Blackpool, suffered the injury in the first week of the Tangerines’ pre-season campaign.
He could be in line to make his debut against Birmingham at Loftus Road on September 14.
Redknapp said: “He’s a couple of weeks away, he’s going to see a specialist in Manchester today, and hopefully he will get the all clear.
“He’s been training, he just can’t have any contact. He can work with the fitness coaches, and do shooting and running. He joins in the game as well, he just has to be careful.”
