IAN Holloway has played down an incident in which Mark Beevers was kneed in the back by a QPR fan after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.
Hoops supporters invaded the pitch at the final whistle to mark their last home league game of the season but one slid into Beevers while he was lying on the ground injured.
Beevers, who had been playing with a glute problem, had to be helped to the dressing room by Lions medical staff.
The defender told NewsAtDen: "I couldn't move during the last ten minutes.
"I've been feeling my glute all week – it's like a dead leg. It's very sore every time I land on it.
"I did it in the first half and had to ice it at half time. At the final whistle, I sat down because I could barely stand up. I was obviously tired and my leg was sore.
"I was facing towards the dugout when the fans started running on. One of them steamed in and slipped, on his knees, and his knees went straight into my back, full force.
"I was shocked because I didn't see him coming and I wasn't braced for the impact. It was really sore."
When asked about the incident in his post-match press conference, Holloway saw the funny side.
He said: "Someone ran on and slipped over. The lads are laughing at Beeves because he got done by a 12-year-old!
"He's a practical joker anyway. He had a bag of ice on his back – God knows what happened.
"I don't blame QPR fans for running on the pitch. Beeves will be fine for the next game.
"People get a bit excited and maybe they shouldn't run on the pitch, but I can tell you that pitch is pretty slippery!"
