Football - Benayoun banned for Blackpool game

QPR will be without Yossi Benayoun when they host Blackpool.

PA Sport Report

Benayoun scored Rangers' goal in their 1-0 win over Wigan on Tuesday night, but he was sent off in the closing stages and serves a one-match ban.

Boss Harry Redknapp could be further depleted in midfield after Niko Kranjcar tweaked his hamstring in the first half and Joey Barton limped off towards the end.

Fit-again right-back Danny Simpson (back) was on the bench in midweek and could be involved but Kevin Doyle (knee), Charlie Austin (shoulder), Matty Phillips, Andrew Johnson (both ankle) and Ale Faurlin (cruciate) remain on the sidelines.
