Cesar doubt for Villa

QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar is a major doubt for Saturday's Premier League basement battle with Aston Villa at Loftus Road.

New manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that the groin injury that forced the Brazilian off at half-time in their game against Sunderland is expected to keep him out of Redknapp's first home game in charge.

Former England goalkeeper Rob Green, who came on for Cesar at the Stadium of Light and played his part in denying the Black Cats in the 0-0 draw, looks set to keep his place against fellow early season strugglers Villa.

"Julio looks like he's done a groin," Redknapp told the club's official website.

"We'll send him for a scan on Thursday, once the swelling goes down a bit, and see what the extent of the injury is. We're lucky that we've got two top goalkeepers.

"Cesar has won everything there is to win in the game. He's a top goalkeeper. Rob is an England international keeper and made a fantastic save when he came on.

"He didn't have a lot to do apart from that, but when he was called into action he was fantastic."
