QPR manager Ian Holloway has confirmed that Nedum Onuoha is back in contention to feature against Leeds United when the two sides meet at Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon.
Hoops captain Onuoha has been out for almost three months after suffering a hamstring tear in the 2-2 draw with Millwall back in September but is now looking good to play against Leeds this weekend.
Holloways has hailed the 31-year-old senior player for how quickly he has been able to return to action, admitting that it is a huge boost for his side for their next Championship fixture.
“It’s really good news for us. Nedum has made a miraculous recovery really – he’s superhuman,” said Holloway, as quoted on the official QPR website.
He added: “Nedum is definitely in consideration for Leeds.”
Onuoha has been able to make just eight appearances across all competitions for the West London side this season, who are without a win in their last five Championship fixtures going into their match against Leeds.
The former Manchester City youth player has been a regular name in the QPR side since joining the club in 2012 and it is clear that they have missed his influence in defence.
The Rs have won just two games in the 12 that Onuoha has missed, while in the seven games he was available for they had won three.
That could be bad news for Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds, who have not won at Lotfus Road since 2011.
