QPR v Bolton

Loftus Road
Kick off:
15.00 BST
Last season: N/A

QPR return to the top-flight for the first time since 1996 and harbour the most realistic hopes of the three promoted sides of staying up.

Neil Warnock has added strikers Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell as well as defender Danny Gabbidon and walking sick-note Kieron Dyer.

Bolton, meanwhile, have regressed after impressing in the first half of last season. Owen Coyle has sold Johan Elmander to Galatasaray, and lost Tyrone Mears and Lee Chung-Yong to injury.

QPR's Rob Hulse is absent with a knee injury, with forward Jamie Mackie set for a return from a broken leg.

For Bolton, Nigel Reo-Coker and Chris Eagles could both make their debuts.
