QPR will check on Adel Taarabt ahead of the visit of champions Newcastle.

The on-loan Tottenham midfielder missed last Saturday's 1-0 win at Barnsley after limping off against Watford the previous week with a heel injury.

Youngster Josh Parker made his full debut at Oakwell in place of Taarabt and will be in line for another appearance if the Moroccan misses out.

Midfielders Martin Rowlands and Gavin Mahon (both knee) are still sidelined along with defenders Damion Stewart (fractured skull) and Matt Connolly (ankle)

Therefore Peter Ramage will line up at centre-half against his former club.

Amazingly, Rangers could end a troubled season with a top-half finish if they win and Doncaster lose at Swansea.

Defender Steven Taylor has not made the Newcastle squad.

The 24-year-old has been out since January with a knee injury and was reportedly hurt in an incident at the training ground as he prepared to make his comeback.

He was included in the squad for last weekend's clash with Ipswich but will not be risked this time around.

Fitz Hall is sidelined against his parent club by a hamstring problem while Tamas Kadar is a doubt after picking up a minor knock on reserve team duty during the week.

Keeper Tim Krul has been promised some involvement having made just five appearances to date this season, two of them as a substitute.

However, winger Jonas Gutierrez has been allowed to return to Argentina ahead of his expected inclusion in his national squad for this summer's World Cup finals.
