Good news for QPR finally after Onuoha blow earlier in the week

Published

on

After suffering yet more bad news in the week when Nedum Onuoha was ruled out until the new year, QPR have finally had some good news on the injury front.

That’s because midfielder Josh Scowen and forward Conor Washington have returned to training and are in contention to feature against Burton Albion on Saturday, according to West London Sport.

In more good news, the influential Luke Freeman should also be free to play having picked up a knock against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Even though the returning players will delight manager Ian Holloway, it’s still in defence where the R’s look really light.

Onuoha requires surgery on a torn hamstring which could see him miss more than the initial diagnosis of three months.

He joins fellow central defenders Grant Hall and Steve Caulker who are unavailable whilst the versatile James Perch has a long-term knee injury, although Joel Lynch should return soon.

Those defensive deficiencies were exposed at the Riverside on Saturday with Boro edging a five-goal thriller, although Holloway was proud of how his team fared against much-fancied opponents.

QPR are back at Loftus Road on Saturday where they will be looking to defend their unbeaten home record against Burton.

The Verdict

It’s been a fairly impressive start to the season by Ian Holloway’s men, particularly with the injuries they’ve had to contend with.

The lack of depth in defence is worrying, however the return of Washington and Scowen in particular will certainly boost the team.

With an international break coming up, Holloway will be hoping the injuries clear up after that.
