Queens Park Rangers midfielder Luke Amos is edging towards a return to Championship action manager Mark Warburton reveals. 

The R’s boss has admitted the 24-year-old is already banging on his office door to see when he might be given his chance to be involved after two lengthy injuries have seen him side lined for a huge chunk of his career. 

QPR will welcome Bristol City to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday looking to build on their positive start to the new campaign and the boss could even have more options to choose from including Amos. 

“We’ve got Luke Amos very near to being available for match day squads, we’ve got Sam Field, Lee Wallace coming back strongly and they’ve been pushing really hard,” Warburton said. 

“He (Luke Amos) has played 30, 45 and 60 odd now, so he is probably ready for a full game. He’s already banging on my door in a nice way to say he’s matchday squad available, which is good to see as he’s a top class professional.

“He is a player that I know really well, and he brings a different kind of attribute. He brings pace and power you’ve seen on so many occasions. 

“Already in training we’ve seen a different kind of striker, so to have Charlie’s penalty box prowess and quality, Lyndon’s obviously qualities and goal scoring record and to then add Andre Gray is really good. 

“We need to make sure use three very good strikers wisely, whether we use one, two or even all three in certain situations. We have to do what’s best for QPR, but it’s great to get them on board.”
