Mark Warburton confirms fresh injury blow at QPR



Injuries have really harmed Queens Park Rangers‘ play-off push at the worst possible time this season.

Huge players like Chris Willock, Rob Dickie and Seny Dieng have missed crucial parts of the campaign, while first choice striker Lyndon Dykes has struggled for consistent availability all season.

Rangers will be hoping for better fortunes next season, but for now it is going from bad to worse.

Mark Warburton confirmed a fresh injury blow when he spoke to the club’s media team this morning.

He said: “Moses (Odubajo) is out for three months.

“It looked to be an innocuous injury, but unfortunately it’s more serious than that.”

Odubajo has been in and out with fitness problems for the majority of the season as well, and that side of his game is possibly part of the reason why he was available on a free transfer last summer.

The 28-year-old is a very competent Championship full back, but there is some uncertainty over his future now with his contract up in the summer, having only started 23 games in the league this term.

There were some other updates as well, Yoann Barbet faces a late fitness test ahead of the club’s trip to Stoke City on Saturday, Lee Wallace has been ruled out, Jeff Hendrick is a doubt and it comes just too soon for Seny Dieng.

However, the Senegalese goalkeeper is poised to return before the end of the season.

The Verdict

Only die-hard QPR supporters will get at least 20/25 on this higher or lower quiz

What is the capacity of the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium?

Nothing will surprise Warburton at this stage, given what has gone against them in the last few months, but to lose Odubajo will hurt.

The former Hull City man should earn a one year extension in the summer, to which the club have an option to trigger, but the injury looks like it could also impact his preparations for next term.

Rangers will be looking forward to freshening up the squad in the summer to generate some optimism around West London, that they can compete in and around the top six once again.

Still just three points off the play-offs, it is not over until it is over and Rangers have a fairly kind trio in taking on Stoke City, Sheffield United and Swansea City to end the season with a flourish.
