QPR expect to have Osayi-Samuel back for Watford game

QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel is expected to be available for Saturday’s game against Watford.

Osayi-Samuel picked up a groin injury prior to the international break and missed the 3-1 defeat at Blackburn.

But he has since returned to training without any problems.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton said: “He’s all good. He’s back training with us and there’s been no negative reaction. I hope he’ll be available for selection.”

Meanwhile, summer signing George Thomas has finally returned to full training following a thigh problem.

Thomas, seen by Warburton as the natural replacement for the injured Luke Amos, has been out for almost two months.

He has been lined up to play for QPR’s development side before making a long-awaited first-team return.

“He’s back training with us,” Warburton said.

“He’s had a longer break than we expected – it was a nasty little injury.

“It looked innocuous at the time, but it wasn’t and the medical team have been working hard and he has as well.

“He was out training with us on Tuesday and again today (Thursday).

“I’d like to get an Under-23s game into his legs, but we’ll keep working with him.

“He’s shown a great attitude – a really hardworking attitude – and we’ve undoubtedly missed him, especially after losing Luke Amos as well.”
