Queens Park Rangers manager, Michael Beale has confirmed Leon Balogun is in contention to face Cardiff City in today’s Sky Bet Championship, reports PNO Sports.

Balogun picked up a knock in QPR’s 3-1 defeat to Luton Town last Saturday.

The 33-year-old was replaced by Sierra Leone defender, Osman Kakay on 14 minutes.

There were fears the centre-back could be set for a spell on the sidelines, but Beale has revealed he is available for the game.

“Leon Balogun is fine, he is back training and available for the game,” Beale told a press conference.

The experienced defender moved to QPR on a free transfer this summer.

He has made six league league appearances for the club.
