QPR manager Ian Holloway has blamed concussion for Pawel Wszolek's absence against Bristol City, and insists he will remain at Loftus Road.

The Poland international was deemed to be fit to face the Robins despite receiving a blow to the head in Monday's under-23 match, but according to Holloway he started feeling the effects later in the week.

Explaining his absence, Holloway said: "He’s injured. He smashed his head on Monday and got concussion.

"He ain’t going nowhere, it’s not that at all, he’s concussed. He came in on Thursday wobbling around, so he might be out for quite a bit with that.
