After missing four consecutive games owing to injury, former Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel may return to action for Stoke City in their Sky Bet Championship clash against Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday

Stoke City manager Michael O’Neil while speaking with reporters on Monday revealed Mikel will be assessed ahead of the crucial midweek game.

 “We’ll assess John Obi (Mikel) today. He trained for part of the session yesterday, but the important thing is not bringing players back too early and risking re-injury,” O’Neil stated during his interaction with the media on Monday afternoon.

“I suppose the big positive for is that no one added to our injury list from the game on Saturday”.

Mikel has made 14 league appearances for promotion-chasing Stoke City this season.
