Leeds handed injury boost with 27-year-old fit for QPR clash, three first-team players out

Eunan O’Kane is fit to face QPR in Leeds United’s trip to Loftus Road on Saturday, Thomas Christiansen has confirmed.

The 27-year-old midfielder sat out of only his second Championship game of the season last week when he was forced to miss the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa due to a hip injury.

However Christiansen has detailed that O’Kane is now ready and available to get back into the squad this weekend when Leeds travel to West London to face Ian Holloway’s QPR.

Christinasen was indirectly quoted by BBC journalist Adam Pope, who was at his press conference on Friday, on his personal Twitter account as saying the Republic of Ireland midfielder is “available”.

However there is also bad news for Leeds with three first-team players ruled out of their trip to QPR.

Pope added that Christiansen revealed Pablo Hernandez, Stuart Dallas and Pierre-Michel Lasogga would all miss the upcoming Championship clash due to injuries.

Leeds go into their clash with QPR having not won at Loftus Road since 2011 when Ross McCormack and Max Gradel were on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win.

However the Whites have been in decent form recently, earning seven points out of the last 12 available while Holloway’s men have not tasted victory in their last five Championship outings.
