Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish does not expect Craig Bellamy or Glen Johnson to have recovered from injury in time to feature against Queens Park Rangers.
The Anfield club travel to Loftus Road on Wednesday when they will be aiming to follow up the weekend's FA Cup quarter-final win over Stoke.
Sunday's success was achieved without Bellamy, who also missed last week's Merseyside derby win with what has been described throughout as a 'niggle'.
Johnson was also absent having not played since scoring in the penalty shoot-out victory over Cardiff in February's Carling Cup final.
And Dalglish on Tuesday morning said of the possible return of the pair to face QPR: "I don't think Glen will be available and maybe not Bellers (Bellamy) either, but we'll wait and see.
"The boys who played on Sunday haven't really trained since, so we'll see how they are this morning. They're coming in later on and we'll analyse what we've got."
