Adel Taarabt

The mercurial pair will be hoping to help QPR in their relegation battle.

QPR take on Crystal Palace in the early kick-off tomorrow afternoon, hoping to get a vital three points at Selhurst Park in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.

Chris Ramsey’s side are currently 18th in the Premier League and three points adrift of safety, with Aston Villa just ahead of them in the fight for survival.

QPR’s recent form has simply not been good enough. They have lost their last three games in the league, with a 2-0 win at Sunderland now seeming like a distant memory.

Of course they have had to play three tough games. Hull City away and Tottenham and Arsenal at home - not much was expected from those games. But they must start picking up the results soon or risk a drop to the second tier once again.

They could probably do with a little extra guile, creativity and unpredictability - Adel Taarabt brings that in abundance.

The Moroccan has not featured for QPR since the defeat against Southampton in February. The controversial playmaker has played just six times this season, missing the last month of action with a groin injury.

But he is now back in action. QPR released photos of him in training this week, as he aims to make it back into the first-team for the Palace fixture.

He was not the only player back in training. Chilean Eduardo Vargas also returned. He has not played since that Southampton game either and QPR will hope to see him back in action shortly.
