Darren Bent back to boost Derby

Darren Bent will be back in the Derby squad for Gary Rowett's first home game as Rams boss against QPR.

Illness ruled Bent out of the draw with rivals Nottingham Forest prior to the international break but the striker has since resumed training.

Midfielder Bradley Johnson will also be fit after missing training last week with a knock.

Rowett, whose first match in charge was a 2-2 draw at the City Ground, is still without long-term absentees Jason Shackell (back), Nick Blackman (knee), Craig Forsyth (knee) and George Thorne (leg).

QPR will check on the fitness of Pawel Wszolek and Massimo Luongo.

Polish winger Wszolek has been struggling with illness but Rangers are hopeful he will be available.

Midfielder Luongo is a doubt, however, after picking up an injury while on international duty with Australia.

Defender Jack Robinson is fit after a hamstring problem and winger Kazenga LuaLua is also progressing well following an ankle injury.
