Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway has confirmed that defensive trio James Perch, Nedum Onuoha and Grant Hall have all returned to first-team training, and should be involved in match-day affairs in the coming weeks.
The trio have been sidelined for extended spells following injury, with Hall yet to appear this season after suffering from tendonitis in his knee.
Perch and club captain Onuoha were carted off through injury in the R’s 2-2 draw with Millwall at Loftus Road back in September, with the former dislocating his knee and the latter tearing his hamstring from the bone.
Both gruesome injuries, the pair have done well to return as quickly as they have, with Onuoha in contention to face Leeds United at Loftus Road this weekend.
Hall will be assessed today ahead of the tie, with Perch not quite ready to return to first-team action.
The trio came through a 60 minute training match at Harlington on Tuesday unscathed, giving Holloway belief that his injury crisis has almost come to a close.
What a relief this is for QPR and their fans.
A devastating injury crisis with three of their starting back-four ruled out for extended spells, Holloway will hope to have the trio back to full-fitness and available for selection very soon.
Onuoha’s recovery has been nothing short of remarkable, with the former Manchester City youngster showing excellent character to fight back from what is a very difficult injury to recover from.
Holloway will be delighted to have the trio back in action approaching the busy Christmas period.
R’s fans, which of the three has been the biggest loss in recent months? Have your say below…
