QPR will be back in W12 on Wednesday evening for their midweek clash with Alex Neil’s Preston North End.
After returning from the international break with a strong performance away at AFC Bournemouth on Saturday, the R’s will be keen to tackle their second game in a matter of days.
Last time out, the R’s produced a positive performance on the south coast and Warburton’s men will be aiming to go one better against the Lilywhites.
Opponents Preston, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back, following their disappointing weekend defeat to Cardiff City.

Head to head
QPR wins: 12
Preston North End wins: 17
QPR: Luke Amos will miss the clash with the serious knee injury he sustained at AFC Bournemouth on Saturday. Lyndon Dykes and George Thomas are doubts for the R’s.
Preston: Ben Pearson in a doubt with a groin injury and Darnell remains sidelined with a hamstring problem. Louis Moult has a knee injury.
QPR manager Mark Warburton: “Preston are a very good team. Alex [Neil] will always prepare his team very well and they have strength in depth. There is no doubt about their quality, it’s early days in the league, but they pose a real threat.”
Preston manager Alex Neil: “QPR is always a difficult game. Mark’s got them set up really well. I think they’ve got good patterns, they know exactly how they’re going to play and we need to perform well on the day to beat them.”
QPR 4-0 Preston North End: 17th October 2009
A stunning Adel Taarabt strike in the first half stole the headlines as a rampant Rangers side continued their fine form, as they stormed up the Championship table.
Jim Magilton’s QPR team started this one in 10th position but, having only lost twice all season, remained confident.
The R’s took the lead through Taarabt’s fantastic strike, before Akos Buzsáky, Jay Simpson and Wayne Routledge completed the scoring in W12.
This impressive win over the Lilywhites set Rangers on their way to a fine run of goal-scoring form, with emphatic victories over Reading and Derby County to follow - a run of form that only highlighted QPR’s promotion credentials.
QPR Starting XI: Cerny, Ramage, Stewart, Gorkss, Borrowdale, Mahon, Routledge, Buzsaky, Faurlin, Taarabt, Simpson.
