The midfielder missed the 2-2 draw at Peterborough with a groin injury, but has shaken off the problem and could resume at Loftus Road.

Defender Rhys Williams was also missing at London Road through suspension, but is available again as Boro attempt to secure a first win for their new manager at the fifth attempt.

Defender Chris Riggott, an unused substitute at Peterborough, will hope for his first senior action since February after recovering from a second ankle operation.

However, Jeremie Aliadiere is still out as he continues his own comeback from ankle surgery, while Seb Hines (knee), Caleb Folan (hamstring) and Matthew Bates (cruciate ligament) remain on the sidelines.
