QPR boss Mark Hughes is happy to have Samba Diakite again available.

Hughes is confident the 23-year-old is close to getting back to his best.

"We needed to give him some game time," he said.

"He's been struggling as we know but he's been really positive and is looking more like the Samba we saw last year. We're hopeful he's over the issues he had and is going to be a factor for us."
