Taarabt in Championship XI

Taarabt in Team of Year - FOOTBALL - Championship

Adel Taarabt's fine season for Queens Park Rangers has continued with the Moroccan midfielder named in the PFA Championship team of the year.

The 21-year-old has scored 16 goals for QPR this season, after being installed as club captain by manager Neil Warnock in the summer, and was named Championship Player of the Year last month.
Taarabt - who also has the most assists for QPR with 15 so far this season - and goalkeeper Paddy Kenny are the only members of the league-leaders' squad named in the Championship's best XI, with promotion-chasing Swansea and Norwich also contributing two players apiece.

Twenty-two year-old Swansea winger Scott Sinclair is named in the XI after a sparkling season for the fifth-placed Swans, with team-mate Ashley Williams winning a defensive berth.
Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt are also named in the squad after helping Norwich to third in the league, one point behind Cardiff.
Watford's Danny Graham gets the nod after scoring 23 goals for the Hornets from his 41 appearances this term, with Andy King and Kyle Naughton (both Leicester), Ian Harte (Reading) and Wes Morgan (Nottingham Forest) completing the Championship XI.
Championship team of the year:
Paddy Kenny (QPR)
Kyle Naughton (Leicester)
Wes Morgan (Nottingham Forest)
Ashley Williams (Swansea)
Ian Harte (Reading)
Scott Sinclair (Swansea)
Adel Taarabt (QPR)
Wes Hoolahan (Norwich)
Andy King (Leicester)
Danny Graham (Watford)
