Balogun looks likely to miss rest of season

Leon Balogun is expected to miss the remaining matches of the season after suffering a hamstring injury during QPR’s 3-0 defeat at home to Coventry.

Rangers had made all their substitutions when Balogun had to go off in the final couple of minutes, leaving them down to 10 men.

The veteran defender, signed on a one-year contract by ex-R’s boss Mick Beale, has been unavailable for most of the season and recently returned to action after more than four months,

He now appears to have made his final appearance for the club.

Head coach Gareth Ainsworth said: “With three weeks of the season left, if he’s pulled his hamstring then it’s probably looking bleak that he’ll be back. But we live in hope.”

The injury-plagued Luke Amos missed the game – also with a hamstring problem.

Rangers have been beset by muscle injuries this season.

Ainsworth said: “Losing Leon Balogun to a hamstring again. I lost Luke Amos to a hamstring as well.

“It’s just compounding what’s happening here and things don’t seem to be getting any better on that front.”

Meanwhile, Ainsworth stood by his decision to take off Ilias Chair midway through the second half.
