Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink confirms Queens Park Rangers' defender Jack Robinson's fitness

Jack Robinson has still not made his debut for Queens Park Rangers, despite signing for the club back in 2014.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has confirmed to Queens Park Rangers' official site that Jack Robinson could finally make a return to action at the weekend.

Robinson joined QPR back in 2014, but he has still not made his debut for the London club.

The left-back was sent out on loan to Huddersfield Town during his first season with Rangers, and during his temporary spell he damaged his cruciate ligament, leaving him sidelined for the past 12 months.

However, after the former Liverpool man made it through two reserve matches in as many weeks, Hasselbaink has seen enough from Robinson to suggest he could have a part to play against Ipswich Town.

“Everybody is fit,” Hasselbaink confirmed. “It looks like Jack is going to be available for selection, too. He came through training, so I have a full squad to choose from.”

Robinson’s return will be a boost for QPR, and he fits the criteria for the squad which Hasselbaink is trying to build at Loftus Road.

The Dutch boss has already expressed a desire to create and English core to his team, with young players targeted.

Robinson is already of proven quality in the Championship, and he should add serious competition for places in defence at Rangers.
