Charlie Austin fit for Queens Park Rangers' trip to Hull City

Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey confirms that Charlie Austin is "back in contention" for Saturday's match against Hull after recovering from a foot injury.

Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey has confirmed that Charlie Austin is fit to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City at the KC Stadium.

There were initial fears that Austin could miss the rest of the season with a foot injury, but the player himself calmed talk over the length of time on the treatment table.

The 25-year-old suffered the problem during his side's 1-0 defeat to Southampton at Loftus Road on February 7, almost three weeks ago.

Ramsey, who is trying to distance QPR from the relegation zone, told reporters in this morning's press conference that Austin is "back in contention".

QPR have taken 22 points from 25 matches this season.
