DIMITAR Berbatov is expected to travel to Loftus Road ahead of this weekend’s clash.

The Bulgarian centre forward has missed United’s last three matches after limping off in the humbling Carling Cup defeat to Crystal Palace.

Sir Alex Ferguson is confident that Berbatov will play a part as well as midfielder Darron Gibson – previously linked with QPR and defender Rafael standing a good chance.

He told Manutd.com: ‘Berbatov’s fit.

‘Rafael is back training as well. Darron Gibson got a knock last night [for the Reserves]. He was taken off as a precaution but he should be okay.’

The last time the two sides met Eric Cantona struck scandalously late into injury time to seal a draw for the visiting side. A goal that sits deep in the memory of QPR supporters to the day.

Darren Flether and Nemajna Vidic will be sidelined for the clash owing to their highly publicised illness and injury respectively.
