Match Preview

Taarabt back in the running QPR could be unchanged as they attempt to move a step closer to promotion against Derby. Skipper Adel Taarabt has been suffering with stomach cramps recently, but still managed 70 minutes of Tuesday night's 1-0 win at Barnsley. The midfielder, who took his goal tally for the season to 16 with the first-minute winner, was taken off as a precaution but will be fit to face the Rams. Recalled centre-half Matt Connolly should have done enough to keep his place ahead of Dan Shittu and Fitz Hall. Full-back Peter Ramage played for the reserves this week after seven months out with a cruciate injury, but will not be considered yet. Striker Jamie Mackie is still recovering from a broken leg. Derby have no new injury problems ahead of the trip. Gareth Roberts, who made a surprise return from a knee injury in the win against Leeds on Tuesday night, has since missed some training as a precaution but is expected to be available for the televised game. "Gareth made a big difference to the balance of the team against Leeds," said Clough. "Having him at left-back meant we were able to move John Brayford back to right-back and that helped us look more solid. "Coming back so soon also highlighted Gaz's character, when medically perhaps he shouldn't have played." Stephen Pearson set up both Rams goals in the 2-1 win against Leeds after playing in an unfamiliar left midfield role, and Clough admits he faces a selection dilemma over where to play the Scotland international. "Stephen would rather play in central midfield, while we think he can do a job out wide on the left," said Clough, who could have Polish forward Tomasz Cywka available again after a knee injury.

Match Report

Savage stars as leaders held Robbie Savage put the brakes on QPR's promotion charge as Derby frustrated the leaders to claim a goalless draw. The veteran Welsh midfielder, who is retiring at the end of the season, succeeded where many have failed this term with a man-marking job on Rangers captain and top scorer Adel Taarabt. Savage followed the Moroccan's every move, chipping at his heels and chirping in his ear and with their star turn kept quiet, Rangers could not find a way through. They are already selling 'We are Premier League' t-shirts in the stalls outside the ground, and while that may be slightly premature, they should prove a sound investment with Neil Warnock's side nine now points clear of Norwich in third. There is still the small matter of an FA charge hanging over the club regarding the transfer of Alejandro Faurlin, but a points deduction remains an unlikely outcome. Certainly no-one seemed too concerned at a sold-out Loftus Road, although they will have to wait a little longer for their promotion party. Savage may be winding down his career but he has not lost his knack of winding up players and fans alike. He boasted after last season's meeting between the sides that he had kept Taarabt in his pocket. And it was not long before Savage had reintroduced himself to the 16-goal midfielder, lunging into a reckless challenge before kicking the ball against his grounded opponent to earn a booking after only 12 minutes. Taarabt was eventually put out of his misery when Warnock hauled him off with 20 minutes to go, and he took his frustration out on a water bottle. But Rangers still had plenty of chances to take all three points. They almost took the lead after just five minutes when Clint Hill flicked on Taarabt's corner and Heidar Helguson stabbed the ball inches wide at the far post. Wayne Routledge should have put the hosts ahead five minutes later when Faurlin's chip left him with just Rams keeper Brad Jones to beat but he poked his shot wide. Tommy Smith also headed a good chance too high and Jones tipped Taarabt's audacious curler over the top. Derby are still not mathematically safe from relegation, although last weekend's win over Leeds has given them plenty of breathing space. Theo Robinson and James Bailey went close for them in the first half, and they could have snatched a shock victory after the break but for Paddy Kenny. Much has been made of Taarabt's contribution this term but Kenny's has been just as vital. And the keeper ensured he kept his 24th clean sheet of the campaign, a club record, and secured a point for the hosts with a stunning one-handed save to deny Stephen Pearson from 12 yards.
