Adel Taarabt returns for QPR when the leaders host Neil Warnock's former club Sheffield United.

The Rangers skipper and Championship player of the year missed his first game of the season at Doncaster before the international break after a family bereavement.

Taarabt, who has hit 15 goals this term, 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.

Warnock, who managed the Blades for eight years until 2007, is still without defender Peter Ramage (cruciate) and striker Jamie Mackie (broken leg).

But Ishmael Miller and Matt Connolly are pushing to return the squad 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.

Striker Henderson was sidelined for the 2-0 win over Leeds last time out due to a one-game ban, while defender Collins missed out against his former club 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's stop-start season continues as he serves the second game of a four-match suspension.

Defender Johnny Ertl is expected to miss out again due to a knee injury and Wolves striker Sam Vokes briefly returned to his parent club this week before starting a loan spell at Norwich.

Midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise is pushing for a return to the starting line-up after stepping off the substitutes' bench against Leeds, but long-term absentees Chris Morgan, Ryan France and Andy Taylor remain sidelined.
