Kevin Bond plays down Charlie Austin injury fears

Kevin Bond reveals that Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin suffered no lasting damage to his hamstring in the 2-1 victory over Watford at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers assistant manager Kevin Bond has revealed that striker Charlie Austin sustained no lasting damage to his hamstring in the Hoops' victory against Watford.

The 24-year-old scored a late winner for his side against the Hornets earlier today, before leaving the field holding the back of his leg.

"It was probably a bit more from fatigue - he was shattered," Bond confirmed to reporters following the clash at Loftus Road.

"I think he's OK. Charlie had a couple of opportunities before he scored and he thinks he should have done better with a downward header."

QPR remain third in the Championship table following the victory.
