Roberts could return to QPR squad for Sunderland game

QPR will assess Tyler Roberts ahead of Tuesday’s game against Sunderland. 

Roberts trained on Friday but “didn’t feel ready” for Saturday’s match against Millwall, according to R’s boss Neil Critchley.

“We’re hopeful he will be in the squad for tomorrow night,” Critchley added.

Meanwhile, Jake Clarke-Salter faces another spell on the sidelines. 

The former Chelsea man has started just 12 games since joining in June.

“It’s a calf injury and he won’t back in the short term, that’s for certain,” said R’s boss Neil Critchley.

With Leon Balogun also unavailable and Conor Masterson out on loan, Rangers are now somewhat low on options in a position in which they were previously overloaded.

Balogun, Clarke-Salter, Roberts and Taylor Richards – key signings made prior to Critchley replacing Mick Beale at Loftus Road – have all been unavailable for much of the season.

Chris Willock was also being assessed on Monday morning after going off with more hamstring trouble soon after coming on as a substitute against Millwall.

Striker Sinclair Armstrong went off during that game because of cramp but is expected to be in the squad for Tuesday’s home game.
