QPR boost with Dunne comeback
RICHARD Dunne is now in line to make a return to action and help out in QPR's battle to avoid relegation after he made a successful comeback for the club's reserve side.
The former Ireland defender has been out since February with a knee injury which looked like to end his season.
But Dunne has made rapid progress in his rehab and he took a major step towards full fitness yesterday when he started, and played for 81 minutes, for the Rangers' U21/reserve side, against Millwall.
Irish youngsters Jake Mulraney and Ryan Manning also featured for the QPR side but all eyes were on Dunne.
The Dubliner has featured for the first team just once under new boss Chris Ramsey and Dunne is eager to prove his fitness by appearing before the end of the season. Dunne, 35, has made 18 appearances for QPR this season.
Meanwhile, ex-Derry City man Michael Duffy has scored his first goal since his move to Scotland, Duffy on target for Celtic's U21 side against St Johnstone.
