Mark Warburton shares encouraging Sam Field update ahead of QPR’s clash with Nottingham Forest

Published

on

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has revealed that Sam Field could be in contention to make his return to action in the club’s upcoming clash with Blackpool.

The midfielder has yet to feature for the Hoops’ senior side this season since sealing a permanent switch to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium earlier this year.

Field picked up a serious knee injury during pre-season and thus has been forced to watch on from the sidelines in recent months.

Having stepped up his recovery from this issue by featuring for the club’s Under-23 outfit earlier this week, the midfielder could potentially make his return to action on November 6th when QPR head to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool.

The Hoops will be hoping to deliver a response to their recent defeat to Sunderland in the League Cup when they host Nottingham Forest in the Championship this evening.

QPR will move up to fourth in the second-tier standings if they beat Steve Cooper’s side.

Ahead of this clash, Warburton has provided an update on Field.

Who does former QPR man Tom Carroll play for now?

Speaking to QPR’s official website about the midfielder, Warburton said: “It was great to see Sam playing 45 minutes against Bristol City for the Under-23s on Tuesday and again he will get more minutes this week, and hopefully be ready for Blackpool and then after the international break.”

The Verdict

This is an encouraging update for QPR as Field could potentially help them to push on in the Championship when he is fit enough to feature.

Whilst Warburton will not be looking to rush Field back into action, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the midfielder ends up making a cameo appearance against Blackpool.

During his time on loan at QPR last season, the 23-year-old managed to show some real signs of promise in the Championship as he made 1.1 tackles per game, 1.1 interceptions per match and recorded a pass success rate of 81% at this level (as per WhoScored).

Providing that he is able to make considerable strides in terms of his development under the guidance of Warburton in the coming months, Field could potentially become a key player for QPR as they look to launch a push for a top-six finish.
