Team News: Five changes for Rangers

Adel Taarabt is one of five players recalled by Queens Park Rangers for their crucial Premier League clash with Stoke, who name Peter Crouch and Cameron Jerome in attack.

Harry Redknapp has made five alterations to the Queens Park Rangers XI for their must-win Premier League match against Stoke City at Loftus Road this afternoon.

Unpredictable playmaker Adel Taarabt is one of those recalled as Redknapp goes in search of victory against their relegation rivals.

There is a change in goal, with Robert Green preferred to Julio Cesar, and in defence, where Tal Ben Haim replaces Nedum Onouha.

Stephane Mbia and Shaun Derry come into the lineup at the expense of the injured Jermaine Jenas and Esteban Granero, while Park Ji-Sung is only named among the substitutes.

Visiting manager Tony Pulis names two strikers, Peter Crouch and Cameron Jerome, in his team, who have only scored two goals in their last seven top-flight matches.

Kenwyne Jones is demoted to the Stoke bench, while Geoff Cameron and Andy Wilkinson drop out as Pulis again switches his full-backs.

QPR: Green; Bosingwa, Samba, Ben Haim, Hill; Townsend, Mbia, Derry, Hoilett; Taarabt; Remy

Stoke: Begovic; Shotton Huth, Shawcross, Wilson; Walters, Whelan, N'Zonzi, Adam; Crouch, Jerome
