Matt Connolly has recovered from an ankle injury quicker than first thought, with the defender set to make a return to the squad within two weeks to face Stoke.


Connolly suffered a blow to his ankle in a training session, colliding with Shaun Wright-Phillips at the start of October. It was feared that he might need surgery, but Neil Warnock revealed today that the 24-year-old is getting better quicker than expected.


"They thought Matt was going to need an operation but the surgeon said not, and I expect him to step up training this week,” he said.

"He might only be a couple of weeks away."


A return after the international break next weekend has been penciled in for Connolly, when QPR face the Potters at the Britannia Stadium.

The side are currently 11th in the Barclays Premier League table, and desperately need to bolster their defence with a current goal difference of -10.


And after two straight losses to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City respectively, Warnock won’t want to allow Stoke to use their home ground as an advantage when the two face off on November 19th.
