Ali Faurlin's season may have only lasted three games before another cruciate ligament injury struck, but he could still be a great help to his QPR team-mates this weekend.
The Argentine midfielder may well be able to give the lowdown on two of his compatriots, who will be key to Leicester City's hopes at Lotfus Road tomorrow.
In fact, Esteban Cambiasso and Leonardo Ulloa have been identified as two of City's three to watch by Rob Tanner of the Leciester Mercury.
Cambiasso, who has more than 50 international caps to his name, joined Leicester in the summer from Inter Milan, where he had spent a decade, following previous spells with Independiente, River Plate and Real Madrid.
Tanner said: "The experienced Argentina international has added composure and know-how to City’s midfield. He will sit in front of the City back four and as well as screening the defence he will also launch attacks with his near faultless distribution.
"His experience has also been invaluable within the entire squad because there are very few players within the city camp who have ever played at this level."
Ulloa, meanwhile, was also a summer signing, but from the less illustrious surroundings of Brighton & Hove Albion - although he has more than made his mark with five goals in 10 games.
Tanner said: "Another Argentine who has made a big impact at City. City’s record signing, he made an instant impact scoring five times in his first five games but as City have struggled to create chances of late the goals have dried up for Ulloa. Regardless, he plays a vital role as City’s targetman and has the ability to bring others into play. City’s ability to get support up to Ulloa will be vital at Loftus Road."
Leicester's third key man is defender Wes Morgan, who spent a decade with Nottingham Forest before joining City two years ago, and also has 10 international caps for Jamaica.
Tanner added: "Leicester City’s captain has been a rock at the back and the statistic of just two clean sheets this season doesn’t do his performances justice.
"Statistically, he has been more effective this season than Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany in terms of tackles and blocks made in games. Morgan has waited his whole career to play in the Premier League and is determined to take this opportunity."
