Diakite set to miss crunch clash
Queens Park Rangers,
QPR are set to be without key midfielder Samba Diakite for their last day decider at Manchester City on Sunday due to a virus.
The January signing from Nancy could be joined on the sidelines by a host of other Rangers stars as Mark Hughes' men look to claim an unexpected point to guarantee their Premier League survival.
Shaun Derry is also struggling with a dead leg while fellow midfielder Akos Buzsaky is having treatment for a hamstring strain, with the pair both rated doubtful for the Etihad Stadium encounter which City need to win to definitely clinch the title.
Rangers' options in the middle of the park are further depleted by the absence of Alejandro Faurlin, who is a long-term casualty after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage.
