Neil Warnock has endured a frustrating summer with owners reluctant to spend and his star player, Adel Taarabt, expressing an interest in moving away from Loftus Road.
The majority of Warnock's dealings have been in the free transfer market as back-up goalkeeper Brian Murphy, striker Jay Bothroyd and former West Ham duo Kieron Dyer and Danny Gabbidon have all been brought in for no fee.
QPR's only outlay in transfers this summer has been on former Blackpool forward DJ Campbell.
Warnock will be buoyed by Taarabt's stay, and the QPR boss will be hoping the Morocco international can propel his side to safety.
Owen Coyle's pre-season preparations were hampered as influential winger Chung-Yong Lee broke his leg during a friendly. One of the Scot's summer signings, Tyrone Mears, suffered the same fate a week ago in training.
Bolton have seen three other arrivals this summer in Chris Eagles, Darren Pratley and Nigel Reo-Coker and all three are in contention of a place in the starting line-up at Loftus Road this Saturday.
Stuart Holden, who resumed training this month after missing five months with a knee injury, is not expected to make the match.
