Team news: Dajaku set to miss QPR

Sunderland are set to be without Leon Dajaku when they face Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Alex Neil provided an update on the German's fitness on Friday, explaining the forward has suffered a recurrence of a thigh problem after coming off the bench in last weekend's victory at Bristol City.

The Lads have no other fresh injury concerns ahead of this weekend's Stadium of Light match-up, as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the league campaign.

Speaking ahead of a return to Wearside action, the Head Coach provided the latest news from the treatment room.

“I doubt it," said Neil when asked if Dajaku could feature against QPR.

"He’s got a recurrence of a thigh problem he had and that’s what ruled him out the other night."

He added: "As far as I am aware at the moment, yeah, there are not too many concerns.

“The group that played warmed down yesterday and other group that didn’t start trained - and everybody has come through fine."
