6 injured and 1 doubtful for QPR ahead of West London derby clash with Brentford

Queens Park Rangers could be without seven first team players for Monday night’s clash with Brentford, according to a report by local media outlet Get West London.

QPR prepare to take on Brentford in a West London derby clash at Loftus Road on Monday night with both clubs currently wallowing in mid-table.

But QPR go into the game with a heavily depleted squad.

Six players have been ruled out with injury and Jordan Cousins is also a doubt for the match.

Ian Holloway will run the rule over Cousins and assess his fitness, despite the midfielder’s insistence that he is available to play.

Joel Lynch is also out of the game after twisting his ankle in the 2-0 defeat against Derby County in the week and he is expected to be out for a prolonged period.

Darnell Furlong will also miss the West London derby with injury.

Meanwhile, long term absentees Grant Hall, Nedum Onuoha, Steven Caulker and James Perch all remain sidelined and will miss Monday’s game.

However, the one piece of good news is that Australian international Massimo Luongo has been passed fit.

The talented midfielder missed the midweek loss at Derby County but he has since recovered from his illness.

The Verdict

It seems like QPR have a bit of an injury crisis at the back.

Hall, Lynch, Onuoha, Perch, Caulker and Furlong’s injuries mean that QPR are without six defenders for Monday’s game.

This is a figure that would be likely to stretch any team in the division and Holloway will be thoroughly considering his alternative options.
