Hulse: Recovered from injury

Rob Hulse could make his long-awaited debut for QPR after recovering from an Achilles injury.

Neil Warnock has a number of selection headaches ahead of the game, with Bradley Orr (calf), Fitz Hall, Alejandro Faurlin and Leon Clarke (all hamstring) all back in contention.

Orr could have a battle to win back his place at right-back with England Under-21 international Kyle Walker extending his loan spell from Tottenham until January.

Peter Ramage and Lee Cook remain long-term absentees with knee injuries.

Norwich defender Adam Drury is available for the game after recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered warming up for the 3-0 win at Bristol City before the international break.

It meant a first start for Steven Smith, a summer signing from Rangers, who produced a fine performance at Ashton Gate. Although he picked up a knock towards the end of the game, he is also fit.

QPR have rattled up eight wins and two draws in 10 games and have accumulated 13 points from a possible 15 at home, without conceding a goal.

Norwich, meanwhile, have scored in 32 consecutive away league matches stretching back to March 2009 and will be backed by 3,100 fans having sold their entire allocation.
