QPR’s Faurlin ‘should be fine’ despite knock

Alejandro Faurlin of QPR
Chris Ramsey says he does not believe a knee problem which kept Alejandro Faurlin out of QPR’s defeat against Nottingham Forest is cause for concern.

The popular Argentine picked up a knock in training on Friday and was left out of the matchday squad at Loftus Road, where recent signing Daniel Tozser made his R’s debut.

Faurlin, 28, returned to the Rangers side at the start of the season after batting his way back from a third long-term knee injury in as many years.

And head coach Ramsey believes Faurlin will soon be back in action.

He explained: “He got a knock in training on Friday. It’s a knock on the same bad knee and we didn’t want to risk it. Longer-term he should be fine.”

Faurlin’s condition will be assessed ahead of Wednesday’s home match against Blackburn.
