Team news: Queens Park Rangers v Norwich City

21 September 2018

Daniel Farke says he will travel to Queens Park Rangers with most of the players who were part of his matchday squad for the win over Reading in midweek.

The only change for the Loftus Road travelling 18-man squad will see Michael McGovern come in for Aston Oxborough who needs a scan on a swollen hand.

Elsewhere, the City Boss delivered positive news on the fitness of Louis Thompson and Ivo Pinto.

"Louis Thompson is available, he's back in team training. He hasn't lost so much fitness because he's been able to do some running," said Farke.

"Ivo is back in team training as well but he has missed quite a bit of football so far. He missed all of pre-season so he will play some minutes for the Under-23s on Friday.

Ben Marshall missed the visit to the Madejski Stadium through illness, and on his situation, Farke said: "Ben has been away most of the week. He was in today but the Doctor said we had to careful so he did some bike work this morning and is not available."

On Kenny McLean, whose been missing since mid-August, Farke said: "Kenny has had slight problems with his ankle. We aren't too concerned but he still has some problems when he does multi-directiional movements. We will have to do without him.

To finish, Farke updated the local press on the fitness of Onel Hernandez who underwent hernia surgery last week.

"Operation is done and was successful. He is already back and the Doctor is pretty pleased. He could be back soon. He's desperate to come back as soon as possible."
