Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has revealed that Moses Odubajo is set to undergo a scan on an injury that he suffered during yesterday’s meeting with Derby County.

Odubajo was substituted in the 58th minute of this fixture after picking up an issue with his calf at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Following the full-back’s withdrawal, QPR went on to secure all three points in front of their supporters thanks to a late goal from Luke Amos.

The midfielder was played through by Lyndon Dykes and produced a composed effort as he slotted past Derby goalkeeper Ryan Allsop.

The Rams were reduced to ten-men in stoppage-time as Tom Lawrence was shown a second yellow card for a challenge on Charlie Austin.

QPR moved to within striking distance of the play-offs as a result of this win and will be keen to back up this display by defeating Stoke City this weekend.

After his side’s clash with Derby, Warburton shared an injury update on Odubajo.

Speaking to West London Sport about the full-back, Warburton said: “It’s a calf problem, so we’ll see how he is.

“A calf might be seven to 10 days or it might be 10 to 12 days.

“We don’t know.

“He’ll get scanned and see how it is.”

The Verdict

With QPR set to take on Stoke on Saturday, Odubajo is almost certain to miss this fixture if Warburton’s assessment turns out to be correct.

In the absence of the full-back, the R’s will need to turn Osman Kakay for inspiration at the bet365 Stadium.

Kakay made his 10th league appearance of the season yesterday as he helped his side keep a clean-sheet in their showdown with the Rams.

Currently averaging a relatively underwhelming WhoScored match rating of 6.21 in the Championship, the defender will have to step up to the mark if he is to make a positive impact this weekend.

As for Odubajo, he will be hoping to be fit enough to feature in QPR’s upcoming clashes with Sheffield United and Swansea City.
