It seems that QPR did not tie up Routledge`s signature in time for him to be registered to play for us in the 3rd round of the FA Cup – and that means the 3rd round replay, too!
According to the London Informer, both sides were still considering the terms of Routledge`s contract at the noon deadline for registering players as imposed by the F.A.
Routledge finally put pen to paper at about 3.00pm on Friday 2nd January – but that was 3 hours too late for him to be eligible for the 3rd of the FA Cup.
It remains to be seen whether Lee Cook will in fact feature for the Rs tomorrow night, following his absence on Saturday due to a nasty virus which meant he had to be substituted against Burnley in the game at Loftus Road ten days` ago. With both wingers absent, Sousa may have to re-think the team’s shape to accommodate those players coming into the side.
Elsewhere, the Club have announced that Patrick Agyemang`s exploratory surgery was a great success. Head Physio, Paul Hunter, told the QPR official website that “the early signs are very positive in terms of rehabilitation.”
Hunter confirmed that Agyemang has “already began light rehab work and we will continue to monitor his progress over the coming weeks.”
The problem with this last statement is that it is rather vague – just how many “weeks” will Agyemang be out for, Mr Hunter?
