MIDFIELDER Gavin Mahon is unlikely to be risked in QPR's last four games of the season, according to manager Neil Warnock.

Mahon, who has captained Rangers several times during his two and a half years at the club, has not played since he underwent knee surgery five months ago.

"It's still a possibility Mahon could play," Warnock told the Times. "He hasn't written himself out yet, he's talking about being match fit for the end of April.

"But we'll have to think seriously about it. If he's coming back a week before the end of the season, it might be better for him to think about having a good summer instead."

The 33-year-old is coming towards the end of his contract and may face an uncertain future, along with some of the players currently on loan at other clubs.

Watford have already agreed a deal to re-sign Heidar Helguson - who has been on loan at Vicarage Road since November - on a permanent basis in the summer.

But Warnock will make no snap decisions on the status of defender Fitz Hall or striker Patrick Agyemang, on loan with Newcastle and Bristol City respectively.

The pair both have a year left on their current deals at QPR and Warnock added: "Hall and Agyemang have got injuries, so I haven't seen them play yet.

"Anybody's part of my plans if they're good enough. I won't think about any replacements until I know whether they're going to play for us.
