QPR suffered yet another loss in the Championship last night, losing 2-0 away at West Brom. Do the team still need Ainsworth…

QPR’s woes in the Championship persisted as they suffered yet another defeat last night, with a 2-0 loss on the road against West Brom. This marks their fifth consecutive loss in the league, and they haven’t managed to secure a victory in their last eight matches. Last night at The Hawthorns, Ainsworth’s team experienced defeat, conceding two goals in the second half, especially after Jimmy Dunne received a second yellow card just before the one-hour mark. Consequently, the London-based club finds themselves in 22nd place on the Championship table.

To compound their troubles, there are concerns about a potential injury to Jake Clarke-Salter, the center-back who had to be substituted at halftime. Ainsworth commented after the game, “I don’t want to speculate on the extent of Jake’s injury, as that’s the medical staff’s domain. However, it was unfortunate that he had to come off, considering he had scored a great goal on Saturday and was a significant threat tonight.” Clarke-Salter, 25 years old, had been a consistent presence in QPR’s starting lineup for the past five matches since returning from injury, accumulating seven appearances in the Championship this season.

Unfortunately, the situation for QPR continues to deteriorate, with a series of injuries coinciding with their string of defeats. Clarke-Salter had been performing exceptionally well and had arguably been their most reliable defender in recent weeks, so if his injury proves to be serious, it will be a significant setback for both Ainsworth and the player. Furthermore, with Steve Cook and Morgan Fox already sidelined, and Dunne serving a suspension, QPR now suddenly find themselves without any available center-backs as they prepare to face league leaders Leicester City in their upcoming home game this weekend. It appears that this upcoming match could prove to be a significant challenge for QPR, with the odds favoring a victory for Leicester City.
