QPR boss Mark Hughes is confident Alejandro Faurlin's injury isn't serious after their Capital One Cup defeat to Reading.

The Argentinian midfielder has only just recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury but Hughes believes he has avoided another serious blow.

"I have not had an update, in fairness," Hughes said. "I think he landed on his hip.

"As a consequence, he was struggling to walk because he might have banged a nerve or something but I am pretty sure it was not his knee, thankfully."
