QPR striker Rob Hulse will miss the Premier League opener with a knee injury.

Hulse is three weeks away from recovery, but forward Jamie Mackie may soon come into contention as he continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg.

Otherwise manager Neil Warnock has a fully fit squad to select from, with Danny Gabidon, DJ Campbell, Jay Bothroyd, Bruno Perone and Kieron Dyer all poised for debuts.

Tuncay is unlikely to make his debut for Bolton.

The Turkey international is yet to be granted a work permit and will be forced to watch his new team-mates from the stands at Loftus Road.

Nigel Reo-Coker and Chris Eagles could both make their debuts in midfield but Tyrone Mears and Lee Chung-yong are ruled out with broken legs.

QPR (from): Kenny, Cerny, Murphy, Orr, Hill, Derry, Hall, Gabbidon, Taarabt, Dyer, Campbell, Bothroyd, Faurlin, Gorkss, Buzsaky, Connolly, Hull, Smith, Helguson, Moen, Agyemang, Shittu, Ephraim, Doughty, Hewitt, Jones, Perone.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Lainton, Steinsson, Riley, Cahill, Knight, Wheater, Robinson, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Muamba, Pratley, M Davies, Eagles, Alonso, K Davies, Klasnic, Blake.
