Jake Clarke-Salter and Tim Iroegbunam could return to the QPR side for Wednesday’s vital home match against Norwich.

Clarke-Salter has missed much of the season since being signed on a free transfer last summer after being released by Chelsea.

He has started just 12 matches for the R’s and his most recent appearance came in a 1-1 draw at Huddersfield in early February.

But Clarke-Salter recently returned to full training and might feature against Norwich – possibly at left-back.

Iroegbunam has also returned to training after a recent injury and boss Gareth Ainsworth hopes to include him in the squad.

But Rangers expect to be without Leon Balogun, who limped off during the 3-0 defeat by Coventry.

Meanwhile, Tyler Roberts, who was named on the substitutes’ bench for that game, reported an injury in the warm-up so was not involved.

Ainsworth explained: “Tyler was down as a substitute and unfortunately he pulled up in the warm-up.

“That was tough to take. We wanted extra forwards and Tyler is a good forward.

“It was difficult because I wanted to maybe stick him on at some stage and see what Tyler has been giving us in training – he’s been looking quite good.

“Hopefully he might be involved on Wednesday. It would have been a risk to put him on on Saturday.”
