QPR manager Chris Ramsey has admitted that he is having his fingers crossed about the fitness of defender Paul Konchesky, who has been brought to the club on a season-long loan deal.
The 34-year-old is the only fit left back to the club. Even though Ramsey has two other options, they both are injured thus leaving Konchesky to fill this key position. The manager would not have envisaged such a situation at the club given that he had three left backs at his disposal. Armand Traore and Yun suk-Young are the other two options, but Ramsey has confirmed that they are unlikely to be available within the next couple of weeks.
After making a poor start by failing to win the opening two games, QPR have managed to win the last three games in succession. This has put them near to the top of the table. Due to mounting debts, QPR will struggle a lot if they are not promoted to the Premier League at the first time of asking. However, they face a strong competition from the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion and Hull City. Both these teams have been the best in the Championship so far and it will take a lot of effort to overcome them.
“We hope Paul stay’s fit; we wouldn’t want to chuck Cole in at the deep end.Yun’s two or three weeks away.He’s training quite well, and I hope it’s going to be sooner rather than later.Armand’s in the same boat. He’s a very talented boy, and if I can just get him on the pitch. I’m sure he’s going to want to show what he can do. After all, he’s in the last year of his contract,” said the QPR manager ahead of the game against Yeovil Town.
