QPR boss Mick Beale has confirmed skipper Stefan Johansen will be available to face Watford on Saturday and is confident Chris Willock is also fully fit.

Johansen exited the field against Rotherham looking in some discomfort after taking a kick to the knee midway through the second half, but Beale said the Norwegian midfielder has recovered and will be in the squad for the clash at Vicarage Road.

“Stefan is fine and has trained all week, it was just a bang at the time which meant he obviously couldn’t continue, which was disappointing at the time,” Beale said.

“But the good news is he has recovered. I always worry with a QPR player whenever I see them come off, so to see him back this week was a nice thing.”

Willock, who scored his second goal in as many games this season in the 1-1 draw with the Millers, is yet to complete a full 90 minutes following hamstring surgery last March.

But Beale said: “He’s fine. Chris has done really well this week.  Yesterday is the sharpest I have seen him look.

“But it’s Thursday, and I have said before players are fine (and something has happened), but at the moment everyone is.”
