  • So the goalless draw leaves Sunderland perilously close to the bottom three, while rock-bottom QPR remain cut adrift. But I feel there will be more positives for Harry Redknapp to take from his first game in charge than there were for his Sunderland counterpart Martin O'Neill. Thanks for tuning in and I hope you've enjoyed the coverage. Bye!

  • Indeed it does finish 0-0 as referee Andre Marriner blows for full-time. And the whistle is greeted by a cacophony of boos from the home crowd.

  • Moments left and it looks to be petering out to a goalless draw - which I'm sure Harry Redknapp won't be too disappointed with.

  • Wright-Phillips threatens to carve open the Sunderland defence but Kilgallon produces a magnificent tackle to dispossess the QPR man.

  • Better decision-making by Sessegnon who flings himself towards McClean's far-post cross. But he cannot divert the ball to test Green.

  • Four minutes added time is shown by fourth official Chris Foy.

  • More wastefulness from Sessegnon who picks the wrong option again by going for goal instead of delivering in to the box.

  • Rose lashes a speculative shot over the QPR box. Had more time to pick out a team-mate in the box.

  • CHANCE! Quick break from QPR sees Mackie slip Wright-Phillips in to a promising position inside the home box. But Mignolet is equal to the former England winger's low shot with a one-handed stop.

  • McClean twists and turns on the left flank before doing superbly well to deliver a deep cross. But Colback cannot control in the box and QPR escape.

  • Nelsen boots clear another hopeful Sunderland forward pass.

  • Dearth of quality from both sides - can either produce a bit of magic needed to win the match?

  • Play continues as Traore wins a corner. But QPR fail to threaten from the set-piece as Cuellar gets a vital touch before the hosts clear.

  • Larsson's low shot is saved by Green before QPR attack after dubiously getting away with not conceding a throw-in. O'Neill is livid.

  • Big shout for a penalty as Fletcher tries to flick the ball over Nelsen in the QPR box. Referee Marriner shakes his head in rejection of the Scot's appeal and the replays prove he is right as the ball hit Nelsen's shoulder.

  • Few options for Bardsley as he looks to drive forward but is forced back by QPR pressure.

  • Now it is O'Neill's turn to make a switch - and it's an attacking one. Craig Gardner is replaced by Louis Saha, who played under Redknapp at Tottenham last season remember.

  • But that is Taarabt's last bit of action. He is replaced by Shaun Wright-Phillips and the Moroccan gets a pat on the back from Redknapp for his efforts.

  • A painful one for Taarabt, who gets a pair of Sunderland studs raked down the back of his ankle. Happily he is back on his feet and fit to continue.
