Fit-again Hemed back in QPR’s squad

Tomer Hemed has been passed fit for QPR’s trip to Stoke.

The on-loan Brighton striker has missed Rangers’ past three games because of a niggling groin problem.

But he has since been on international duty with Israel and has trained fully since his return to London.

QPR boss Steve McClaren told the club website: “Hemed has come back fitter he played a little bit for Israel and has trained with us so he comes back into the squad, which has been a huge help.”

McClaren will be without on-loan Stoke midfielder Geoff Cameron, who is ineligible to play against the Potters. Josh Scowen or Jordan Cousins will therefore start in midfield.

“With Cameron missing out we are going to use someone else,” McClaren said.

“Josh and Jordan have all played there and we have gone on to get positive results.

“So we will have to make what is a tough decision as both of them are good players and are doing well.

“We will miss Geoff but it’s a squad game and people have to be ready to do the job and I’m confident they will be.”
