Tyler Roberts will start for QPR against Millwall on Wednesday.
The on-loan Leeds forward has struggled for fitness since his arrival at Loftus Road but came on as a substitute in the defeat at Swansea.
He was selected to start against Huddersfield last weekend, but the game was subsequently called off following the death of the Queen.
Roberts can operate up front or in a withdrawn role, but boss Mick Beale is keen to deploy him as a striker and still plans to hand him a starting place.
Lyndon Dykes has found the going tough in attack this season, scoring just once and missing a number of chances.
Rangers wanted to bring in a striker during the transfer window and were unable to do so, but Beale regards Roberts as a viable option in that position.
Beale has been considering other changes, such as switching to a back three and playing Ilias Chair in a slightly deeper role.
Meanwhile, Jake Clarke-Salter is set to return to full training later this week.
