Amos could feature for QPR against Stoke

Luke Amos could be in line to feature against Stoke City on Saturday as QPR look to head into the international break on a positive note.

Amos has been sidelined since the second game of the season with a hamstring problem but returned to full training last week and Rangers boss Mick Beale says the former Tottenham man will give him further options for the visit of the Potters.

Beale admitted he made mistakes in the recent defeat at Swansea, where he opted to keep a winning team following a midweek victory over Hull, and hinted Amos could play a role for the visit of Alex Neill’s side.

Rangers won 2-0 at Millwall on Wednesday and Beale took Chris Willock, Tyler Roberts and Tim Iroegbunam off in the second half with Saturday’s match very much in mind.

“I have learnt a lesson from the Swansea game that I may need to keep a little bit in one or two of the player’s legs, which is why I made those substitutions,” Beale said.

“There are not too much changes you want to make. Some players who were not involved at Millwall will go and play for the B team at Cardiff (On Friday).

“We will have the similar squad with maybe the addition of Luke Amos, and it will be nice to see him back because if he can repeat his performance from his one start this season, against Middlesbrough, that brings a lot of energy which we have had missing.”

Rangers will have a 10-day break until they travel to Bristol City on October 1 for the first of seven matches in 28 days.

“It’s important we go into the international break in a good place because after it our schedule is just crazy,” Beale said.

“We go to Bristol City then to Sheffield United on the following Tuesday before playing Reading on the Friday night and that is tough.”
