QPR's Warnock wants Taarabt to hit back hard

Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock has urged Adel Taarabt to bounce back to top form when his side plays in front of the whole nation on Friday night football.

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."
