Robinson close to return to action


Jack Robinson is close to a return to action after 10 months on the sidelines with a knee injury.

The 22-year-old left-back, who joined QPR in the summer of 2014, suffered cruciate ligament damage last March while playing for Huddersfield.

He is yet to make a first-team appearance for Rangers, having joined Huddersfield on a season-long loan immediately after being signed from Liverpool.

Robinson, a former England Under-21 international, was considered for selection for a friendly against Reading last week.

In the end he did not feature in the match, but he could play some part in another QPR friendly on Tuesday – again against Reading.

Italian right-back Marco Motta, who is on trial with the R’s, is expected to feature in the game.
