Taarabt back for QPR

QPR are able to welcome back Adel Taarabt for Sunday’s vital Premier League clash with Stoke.

The Morocco international missed last week’s 6-1 thrashing at west London rivals Chelsea through suspension, but is available for selection to face the Potters.

Samba Diakite is a doubt as he struggles with a virus, although manager Mark Hughes hopes he will be an option for the Loftus Road encounter.

Provisional squad: Kenny, Cerny, Murphy, Young, Gabbidon, Onuoha, Ferdinand, Taiwo, Hill, Derry, Diakite, Barton, Buzsaky, Smith, Mackie, Wright-Phillips, Taarabt, Hulse, Cisse, Bothroyd, Zamora, Helguson, Campbell.
