QPR manager Harry Redknapp has played down the seriousness of injuries to Rangers duo Stephane Mbia and Samba Diakite in their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Cameroon international Mbia was stretchered off and taken to hospital after receiving treatment on the pitch for several minutes following a collision with Gabby Agbonlahor.

Mbia’s injury threatened to put a cloud over the contest but Redknapp says he was sent to hospital merely as a precaution, while Diakite’s second half substitution was merely down to a minor injury.

On Mbia, the QPR boss said: “He’s not too bad he’s just got a neck injury, he shouldn’t be too bad.

“They’re just going to have a look at him [at hospital] and make sure he’s ok but they don’t feel there’s any problem.”

He added: “I didn’t see what happened. I followed the ball. I think they just ran into each other.”

Mbia has since written on Twitter: “Actually in hospital ;( i want and i will come back soon as i can! #QPR”

On Diakite, Redknapp said: “Diakite got a little kick on the calf. Not too much wrong with him I don’t think.”
