QPR are hoping to have talented full-back Moses Odubajo back for Saturday’s clash with Rotherham, manager Mark Warburton has revealed.

The ‘R’s host the League One leaders in a third round FA Cup tie at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium with an old-fashioned 3pm kick-off. 
And Warburton is delighted to have the 28-year-old, who has impressed since arriving last summer but has been absent since the 2-1 win at Derby in November due to a hamstring injury, back involved. 
However, he also admitted the need for available bodies is high, with different selection issues culminating at the same time.
“Moses will be involved in some capacity on Saturday,” Warburton told the club website.
“It’s great to welcome him back into the squad, but it’s been a very challenging time for us.
“We have now lost the three lads to the AFCON tournament now (Ilias Chair, Seny Dieng and Ossie Kakay) and of course we still have one or two injuries among the squad, so it really is still down to bare numbers.

“But you have to do what you can, it’s as simple as that.
“We have rarely named a full bench in recent weeks, we are very limited at the moment, but the likes of Sam McCallum and Jordy de Wijs aren’t too far away and that will be a huge boost for us.”
Like many other managers up and down the football pyramid, Warburton is wary of a testing schedule, but remains determined that QPR have a successful cup campaign this season. 
He said: “We faced Birmingham last weekend and face West Brom next week, so to have a game in between is very important. You want the players to maintain some match fitness.
“But it’s more for me that we have players away with AFCON, we have World Cup qualifiers coming up with players going away and the mix between players away on international duty, injuries and the pandemic is a frustrating one.
“I don’t think the best is being done to ensure the players and clubs have the best opportunity to succeed right now.”
“But for me, we will take it (the FA Cup) seriously, we will look at availability, the needs of the players and take it from there.
“I have 18 players so I will look at what the options are, I can use up to five substitutes tomorrow which makes it a little bit easier in terms of rotation - but we are very light, that’s for sure.”
Although the QPR boss will look to name the strongest team possible, he is also wary of the threat posed by the lower league opposition. 
Table-toppers Rotherham have only lost once in League One since September 11 and advanced through the earlier rounds of the FA Cup without conceding a goal.
Warburton added: “It will be a very tough game, Rotherham haven’t changed their style from last season where they were very unlucky with their fixture congestion at the end of the campaign, they are always a tough team to face.
“They have physicality, they have directness, the likes of [Michael] Smith, [Freddie] Ladapo, [Richard] Wood - they are very good at set-pieces, you know the balls will rain into our box tomorrow and you know you will have to deal with it, it’s as simple as that.
“It’s a very good tough test, we need to get the balance right between defending our goal, defending set-pieces resolutely and then making sure we play when we get the ball.”
