QPR dealt fresh injury blow ahead of Leeds United trip.

QPR defender Morgan Fox is poised to miss Wednesday evening’s trip to Leeds United after picking up a knee injury against Coventry City last weekend.

The defender was forced off after just five minutes in Saturday’s loss and QPR boss Gareth Ainsworth admits the player is unlikely to be available against Leeds.

He said: “He limped off in quite a bad way, he has jarred his knee. We will look at that and make a decision on Morgan but what that does is open the door for other people, which is great timing.

“We have got some good options if Morgan is unavailable and we will go from there. I was gutted to see him come off as he played a big factor in the game. We need to make sure we look after Morgan and get him back as quick as we can.

Ainsworth added: “Jimmy is in the squad which is a big bonus. He is a big character so having him around will add to the group.”

Former Sunderland and Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback is set to return to the QPR squad after completing his three-game ban for a red card picked up against the Black Cats last month.

“He has a lot of experience, he has played at the top level for quite while and having him back in the squad is a big boost.”
