  • QPR 1 West Brom 2. All over at Loftus Road and it is the visitors who take the spoils. Another setback for QPR, while West Brom march on.

  • Olsson struggling, not good news for West Brom. Hoilett able to force a corner. Surely this is it? Taarabt goes shot to Hoilett, whose shot deflects behind. Another short one to Hoilett. His cross towards Ferdinand is put behind by McAuley. Taarabt again, but West Brom clear.

  • Fine block from Tamas to deny Hoilett. Last chance for QPR to get something. SWP wastes a throw and West Brom look to counter. Green able to punt long again, but he can't find a team-mate.

  • Taarabt over his 11th corner. Cisse is lurking, but can't get a touch. He claims he was tugged, but play goes on. Ferdinand goes long, but McAuley stands tall and heads clear.

  • Traore happy to punt the ball high and long. QPR are able to win a corner. Is there a final twist in the tail for the hosts?

  • Massive hand-ball shout against Ridgewell. He has his hands up as he tries to cut out a cross towards Mbia. He's a lucky boy. From the corner, Diakite is picked out, but fires across goal and wide.

  • Mulumbu down and requires treatment, as we enter five minutes of stoppage-time. Having seen Foster's 'save' again, it appears as though it was Mulumbu who hacked off the line.

  • So close for QPR. Brilliant save from Foster. West Brom, still in front, trying to head for the corner flags. They don't make it and QPR push forward again.

  • SWP with space on the right. His cross is cut out by Gera, who got close enough to block. Taarabt over the set-piece. His delivery finds the head of Hill. He thinks he has scored, but Foster pulls off a remarkable one-handed save.

  • Tamas concedes a throw deep inside his own half. Traore makes a mess of things and ends up presenting the ball back to the Baggies.

  • Redknapp and his coaching staff on their feet barking out instructions. Can QPR create one more opportunity? West Brom now looking to sit and play on the counter.

  • Morrison trudges off, slowly. Tamas is sent on in his place. All three changes now made by the Baggies.

  • Ridgewell taking as long as possible with a throw. West Brom then pick out Morrison, who threads the ball into Fortune. He rolls the ball under Green, but the flag has gone up for offside. Tight one, but the right call.

  • Mbia cautioned as he chases back after Long and hacks him down from behind. He also had a hold of his shirt, so can have no complaints.

  • SWP prepaed to track back again. His pass towards Cisse is cut out, though, and QPR can't counter. When they do make their way forward, Mackie forces over a cross which has West Brom troubled for a moment.

  • QPR take the free-kick quickly. Mbia does whip the ball into the box at the second attempt, and McAuley nods behind for a corner. Mbia, rising through a crowd of players, can't direct his header on target.

  • Mulumbu forward to Fortune, but he can't get past Traore. QPR looking for a way out, and find one down their left. Mulumbu then fouls Diakite. Chance to push the big men forward.

  • Yet another corner to West Brom. Morrison tries again, but his delivery to the near post is not the best and trickles behind. SWP leads a QPR attack, but fires into the side-netting when trying to cross. Bit of a waste.

  • Another corner to West Brom. Brunt whips the ball into the heart of the six-yard box. Green does well to get a finger to the ball and put it behind again. Morrison over the latest set-piece, which SWP can clear. Chris Foy then slips, much to the amusement of the crowd.

  • Long, only just on the field, is hobbling. West Brom have a corner, so he will play on. The Baggies taking their time again. Morrison eventually delivers, but the ball skids through the area and out on the far side.
