ROWAN Vine is set to make his long-awaited comeback next week in the reserves.

The QPR forward has been out of action for almost an entire year since breaking his leg in a freak training ground collision with ex-Rs goalkeeper Matt Pickens.

But Vine has been back in full training for the last few weeks and should feature in either Wednesday's reserve game away to Charlton or the following week at Brighton.

"Players like Vine and [Akos] Buzsaky are high quality and I don't have a Vine or Buzsaky," said Rangers boss Paulo Sousa.

"Two players in the team can make a big difference. When you lose important players it's not easy."
