QPR club captain Martin Rowlands will step up his comeback this week with a game for the reserves.
The midfielder, who has been out for 10 months with the knee injury he suffered on international duty for the Republic of Ireland, will play in a second-string friendly against West Ham.
"Martin is excited at the moment - he's absolutely busting a gut in training," said boss Neil Warnock.
"It will feel like a fantastic signing when he is back. I couldn't buy anyone better than him."
