American missed Rs’ draw at parent club Stoke City on Saturday
Geoff Cameron could be restored to the Queens Park Rangers’ starting XI for their trip to Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday night.
The versatile USA international, who is on loan at Loftus Road, missed Saturday’s 2-2 away to parent club Stoke City.
Jordan Cousins came into the line-up in Cameron’s place, but was unable to offer the same level of physicality the 33-year-old does.
Cameron could we be recalled to the XI for the trip to the Millers, but QPR boss Steve McClaren still had praise for Cousins display at Stoke on Saturday.
“I thought Jordan came in and did a great job,” said the 57-year-old following the draw at the bet365 Stadium.
“Massimo Luongo only landed on Wednesday after a trip to Australia and he got better as the game went on.
“It’s a squad game, we’ve always said that and the squad played its part on Saturday. The substitutes who came off the bench made sure we got the result.”
Tomer Hemed could be another to come into contention to start for QPR at Rotherham as he continues to return to full fitness.
The 31-year-old, who is on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, has not started a game for the Rs since October 26.
However, Hemed featured for Israel during the international break and also came off the bench for the Loftus Road club at Stoke on Saturday.
McClaren knows it is a gradual process to get the attacker back to full fitness, but remains patient with Hemed’s progress.
“Tomer will continue to work his way back to full fitness, but you’ve seen what a threat he can be,” he added.
