fer dddIn the 17th minute of Tuesday’s match, Leroy Fer headed home the opening goal, which would lead his struggling QPR to their first away win of the season. Unfortunately, a 75th minute knock to his knee will see him out for two months. Fer has been an important player for Queens Park Rangers, and will be sorely missed during his absence, which will only see him return for the tail end of the season. QPR will likely be in a battle to avoid re-relegation to the Championship League. Fer, a large, powerful presence will be a void they have to fill.

Fer is also on his way to becoming a regular within the Dutch national side squad, and will miss out on selection of the upcoming games in March: a Euro 2016 qualifier against Turkey on March 28, and a friendly against Spain on March 31.

Having joined QPR from Norwich City this season, Fer has made 23 appearances and scored 4 goals. We wish him a speedy recovery, and look forward to having him back on the pitch.
