QPR receive double boost, Millwall dealt injury blow & Watford eyeing January signing

It was a perfect weekend for QPR, Millwall and Watford as they all picked up wins. The Hoops beat Wigan Athletic, Millwall saw off West Brom and Watford thrashed rivals Luton Town.

All three teams return to the action this weekend. In the meantime, here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the trio...


QPR have received a boost on the injury front with Chris Willock and Tyler Roberts both closing in on a return from their respective injuries. Their boss Michael Beale has provided this injury update and has told West London Sport: “He (Willock) has been out running and the plan was for him to be available for Birmingham or the game against Norwich. It’s safe to say I won’t take any risks if he’s not ready for Birmingham, because we still have four games after that before the World Cup.”

Beale is not in the running for the Aston Villa job. He has said, as per talkSPORT: “No chance. They’re a great club with great history and good people behind the scenes.”


Millwall have been dealt a blow with Shaun Hutchinson ruled out with a hamstring problem. As per a report by London News Online, the defender could be sidelined now until after the World Cup.

Lions boss Gary Rowett had this to say to the Southwark News after Saturday’s win: “My focus really is on the next game and see if we can maintain the energy levels, I think that’s the most important bit. If we play with that same energy and that same desire, then some games we won’t play with the right quality but we’ll be really hard to beat and to play against. I think that’s what we’ve proved this week.”


Watford are believed to be keeping tabs on Blackpool striker Jerry Yates. According to a report by The Sun, the Hornets have been watching the former Rotherham United and Swindon Town man in action along with the likes of West Brom, Bournemouth and Brentford.

Keinan Davis was delighted with the victory over Luton and told the official website: “It’s an amazing day to have been involved in. We knew coming into to it, it was derby day, fans got here early, and we were up early as well. We knew how important it would be to the supporters to perform.”
