Adel Taarabt returns for QPR after missing his first game of the season at Doncaster following a family bereavement. Taarabt has since played for Morocco and is ready to reclaim his place in midfield.

Hogan Ephraim could be the man to drop out despite hitting the winner against Rovers.

Neil Warnock is still without defender Peter Ramage (cruciate) and striker Jamie Mackie (broken leg), but Ishmael Miller and Matt Connolly are pushing to return along with former skipper Martin Rowlands, who is back from his loan spell at Millwall.

Sheffield United pair Darius Henderson and Neill Collins will give manager Micky Adams a boost by returning to the squad.

Henderson was sidelined for the 2-0 win over Leeds last time out due to a one-game ban, while Collins missed out with a knock.

Adams could also include Stephen Jordan in his squad following the defender's return from his loan spell at Huddersfield, but midfielder Lee Williamson serves the second game of a four-match suspension.

Johnny Ertl (knee) is expected to miss out, while long-term absentees Chris Morgan, Ryan France and Andy Taylor are also sidelined.
