Diakite looks likely to miss Man City game

Samba Diakite appears to be losing his battle to be fit for QPR’s crucial clash with Manchester City on Sunday.

And Rangers are facing a possible midfield crisis for the big game, as Akos Buzsaky and Shaun Derry are both doubts.

Buzsaky is nursing a hamstring problem, while Derry missed training on Friday because of a thigh strain.

Diakite’s continued absence would be a big blow for Rangers ahead of a match they know they need to avoid in if they are to be sure of Premier League survival.

The Mali international is still feeling the effect of a recent virus and has not been able to train fully this week.
