Last time out Derby bounced back from their defeat to Wolves with a 2-0 win at home to Huddersfield. Goals from Chris Martin, his third in four games, and substitute Johnny Russell sealed the points.
Russell is line to start midweek after his goal-scoring appearance while another sub, Craig Bryson is also poised to start after he too impressed. Stephen Warnock, once of Liverpool, has left the club for Wigan Athletic after falling out of favour while Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann will hope for more action after being unused last time out.
Derby have a good record at Rangers. The club have won 5 and drawn 5 of their last 11 meetings although they did lose their last encounter at Loftus Road, going down 2-1 in November 2013.
While QPR beat Birmingham in their last home game they have not won back to back home games this season and last achieved this feat in December 2014. The club lost 2-0 to MK Dons in their last game and have won just one of their last five games.
Their collapse at the hands of the Dons irked their manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink with the former Chelsea striker slamming his players for their recent form.
“We know we are a lot better than this – but we know we have to show it in every game – again, and again, and again. We cannot be up and down. We have to be consistent.”
Hasselbaink could be without centre-back Grant Hall, who suffered a foot injury while Alejandro Faurlin is fit after a thigh injury.
