Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is waiting for news of key duo John O'Shea and Lee Cattermole ahead of tomorrow night's Barclays Premier League clash with QPR.

Central defender O'Shea limped out of Saturday's 4-2 home defeat by West Brom with a calf problem and is a major doubt, while midfielder Cattermole's chances of playing are not a great deal better after he aggravated a knee injury during the same game.

O'Neill also admitted he has a series of other knocks which are a concern, but declined to elaborate as he prepared his side to face a team managed for a first game by Harry Redknapp.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O'Shea, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Bramble, Rose, Cattermole, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Sessegnon, Saha, Fletcher, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden.
