QPR manager Mark Hughes is a worried man as the R’s injury crisis worsens.
The west Londoners have already lost Andy Johnson for most of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury and Jose Bosingwa is set to miss the next couple of weeks with a hamstring strain.
Julio Cesar and Ryan Nelsen were only just fit enough to play because of injury and illness.
“We’re really depleted at the moment,” he said.
“Even before the game Ryan was suffering from an ear infection and a little bit of vertigo. I’m not quite sure how he got through the game to be honest, because he was laid up in a hotel room for the last two days.
“Julio hasn’t trained for the last few days with a back spasm and then we lost Jose inside three minutes, so you have to wonder how bad your luck is.
“Jose’s looks like either a grade one or grade two hamstring injury, so we’ll wait for the results of the scan and see where we are with him in the next 48 hours or so.”
