The Welshman picked up a shin injury during the first half of Blues’ 1-1 draw with Doncaster on Saturday.

Donohue suffered a bad cut and was replaced by debutant James Vaughan at the interval.

Boss Kenny Jackett revealed the former Chesterfield midfielder’s setback will at least require stitches.

Donohue will undergo a scan and Pompey await news if he’ll be able to feature at Loftus Road.

Jackett said: ‘Donohue’s injury is a shin injury which is quite a bad cut and will at least need stitches, although they are taking a precaution to scan him, making sure there are no broken bones in there.’
