Steven Caulker has been recalled to the QPR first team and will start against Barnsley.
The former Tottenham and Liverpool defender has been out of Ian Holloway's plans since the away defeat to Cardiff City before the international break, but was a surprise part of the Hoops bench at the weekend.
Elsewhere, Bright Osayi-Samuel has been rewarded with his first QPR start.
The winger looked lively after being introduced against Burton Albion at the weekend, with Ollie clearly thinking he is ready for his first Championship start.
Massimo Luongo also returns to the team, while Conor Washington drops to the bench alongside the returning Kazenga Lua Lua and David Wheeler.
Meanwhile Yeni Ngbakoto and Darnell Furlong drop out of the squad altogether.
