QPR take on Watford tonight and are hoping to take their unbeaten streak to 20 matches to equal an English Championship record but it will be a harder task if the Moroccan ace puts in a display like he did last time when his side had a primetime match.
"Taarabt was the worst player on the pitch in our last live game at Bristol (in October)," Warnock said. "But he is a great lad and he has tried his hardest to be disciplined.
"Some teams have tried to man-mark him and I am happy with that. It gives two or three other players more space to play."
