Rangers defender Perch to return for Derby clash

QPR will welcome back James Perch to their squad for the visit of Derby.

The full-back sat out the 1-0 loss at Rotherham, which was the Hoops' third successive defeat, having been sent off against Wolves.

Neither Steven Caulker (hip) or Jack Robinson (hamstring) were ready to feature at the weekend and will be assessed again before the quick turnaround.

Jamie Mackie (ankle) played for the development squad on Monday in a 67-minute cameo, but must build up his fitness after a long lay-off.

Derby will be missing both Max Lowe and Ikechi Anya for the trip to Loftus Road.

Teenage defender Lowe has been absent for the Rams' past two games due to a groin strain and boss Steve McClaren confirmed he is not ready to return yet.

Scotland international Anya is another to have missed the previous two fixtures with a bout of illness he is not yet over.

The Rams, on a six-game winning streak, remain without long-term absentee Nick Blackman (knee).
