Yet more injury worries for QPR ahead of Wolves clash

QPR have a number of injury worries ahead of their New Year’s Eve game at Wolves.

Without the suspended Nedum Onuoha and the injured Steven Caulker, Rangers now also have doubts over Massimo Luongo, Tjaronn Chery, Sebastian Polter, Joel Lynch and Jordan Cousins.

Chery and Polter missed the recent defeat at Brighton with knocks, as did defender Lynch, who has a rib injury.

And Rangers’ injury woes have increased as Luongo has been struggling with a groin problem and Cousins is still being hampered by hamstring trouble.

The five players will have fitness tests before boss Ian Holloway names his starting line-up at Molineux.

The injury concerns are the last thing QPR need after a run of six consecutive defeats that has seen them drop to 21st in the Championship table.

“There’s never a good time to have injuries but it’s really hard at this time of the year because there is such a short turnaround between games,” first-team coach Marc Bircham told the club website.

“So it is a difficult period for us now but that’s the way football is, and we’ve got to get on with it.

“For the lads who haven’t played that might get a chance, it is up to them to grab their opportunity with both hands.”
