ROLANDO Aarons is ready to make his long-awaited Newcastle United comeback – after putting in some hard yards on the training field.
Aarons – who was sidelined for six months with hamstring and thigh injuries – was an unusued substitute last weekend.
And the 19-year-old will be on the bench again at Loftus Road on Saturday for the relegation-threatened club’s hugely-important game against Queens Park Rangers.
Head coach John Carver feels the winger can have an impact in the final two games of a troubled season.
“We kept him out of the Under-21 game because we felt that he would get more benefit from the training this week,” said Carver.
“He’s certainly a lot fitter and stronger than a week ago.
“He’s been quite bright, and he’s give me a little bit of a headache now because the bench is getting stronger.
“If the opportunity arises where I need to put him on, then I won’t have any hesitation.”
