Injury worry for QPR defender

QPR’s Jack Robinson is being assessed after suffering another injury.

Left-back Robinson, who spent over a year on the sidelines with a knee injury, did not appear for the second half against Norwich because of a hamstring problem.

He was hurt during the first half of the game at Loftus Road, where Rangers won 2-1 in their first match since Ian Holloway’s return as manager.

“It’s his hamstring. Let’s hope that’s not serious,” Holloway told West London Sport.

“I thought Robbo coming off hurt us a little bit because he’s so good going down that side with his pace.”

Robinson’s withdrawal meant Sandro, an outcast under Holloway’s predecessors, was brought on for the second half against the Canaries for his first league appearance of the season.

It also meant that Joel Lynch was moved across from centre-back to replace Robinson at left-back.

Lynch was impressive, producing a number of surging runs and crosses on the left-hand side.

“Sandro hasn’t put a foot wrong all week. I’m not going to ignore that,” Holloway said.

“I thought Lynchy was absolutely outstanding. He was dancing down the wing like he was (Alfredo) Di Stefano. It was unbelievable.”
