QPR pair set for return, says Warburton

Lee Wallace is set to return to the QPR squad and George Thomas could soon be back in action too.

West London Sport reports that Wallace is back in training after missing the last two games and that Thomas is on the mend following a thigh problem.

Wallace could well be available for tonight’s game at Derby County, where Rangers will be looking to build on their dramatic 3-2 win against Cardiff City on Saturday.

But Niko Hamalainen is expected to keep his place at left-back, with the Finland international – who recently signed a new four-year deal – having been given an opportunity in Wallace’s absence.

“We’re hoping to have a fully fit squad apart from the obvious ones in Luke Amos, who is obviously out of the equation at the moment, and George Thomas, who is getting closer,” manager Mark Warburton told West London Sport.

Amos, a summer signing from Tottenham, is expected to miss the rest of the season with a long-term knee injury.

He was operating in the advanced midfield role Thomas could be an option in.

Warburton added: “George is still just working his way back.

“We’re probably looking for him to impact the team post-international break.”
