QPR team news: McClaren receives timely boost ahead of Rotherham contest

Queens Park Rangers will be looking to keep their fine Championship form going when they travel to the New York Stadium on Tuesday night.

Steve McClaren’s side will meet Rotherham United, who have not lost a home game since August and are unbeaten in their last six matches, including a last-minute draw against Sheffield United at the weekend.

The Loftus Park outfit have been pushing for a place in the playoffs and appear to have been handed a timely boost ahead of the encounter with the Millers.

According to a match preview by Sky Sports, Geoff Cameron is in line to make a return to the squad as he was ineligible for their clash with Stoke City at the weekend.

Tomer Hemed is also pushing for a place in the team after being used as a substitute in the draw against the Potters, having missed the previous two games with a groin concern.

Luke Freeman will want to cap off an excellent week with a fine performance as well, as he was just rewarded with a new long-term deal.

The Verdict:

Having Cameron and Hemed available for the game against Rotherham will be a boost for QPR on Tuesday night.

The American midfielder and the Israeli striker are both very experienced at the Championship level and could make significant contributions in the game at the New York Stadium.

Depending on other results, McClaren will know a win against the Millers will put his side just outside of the playoff spots as they look to challenge for a place in next season’s Premier League.
