  • Chelsea 0 QPR 1. A great strike from former Chelsea winger Wright-Phillips settles this tie. Great start to the New Year for QPR. Back to the drawing board for Benitez and the Blues.

  • Luiz fires another wayward effort into the stands. He was a full 25 yards from goal again. Clear-cut opportunities have been in short supply for the hosts tonight.

  • Dyer sent on in place of Taarabt. Redknapp looking to shut up shop. Nobody forward now for QPR.

  • Redknapp on his feet, moving nervously around his technical area. He sees his side wide another free-kick. The seconds tick down. Chelsea frustrated.

  • Granero replaced by Park. Another experienced head added to the QPR mix.

  • Mata over the set-piece, which is nodded clear by Onuoha. Ball back with Mata. He curls in a dangerous delivery. Ivanvovic gets a touch, but glances the ball narrowly over the top with Cesar beaten.

  • Bertrand can't find a way past Mackie, who is happy to lump the ball forward towards nobody. Chelsea come again. Blue shirts piling forward. Plenty of red ones back though. SWP concedes a corner.

  • Taarabt down after being hacked at by Ramires, who is lucky not to be booked. QPR able to run the clock down a little more. They are urged to get on with things by Lee Mason.

  • Chelsea claim a corner, as Fabio appears to glance the ball behind, but they get nothing. Another aimless cross into the box is easily dealt with by the visitors.

  • Luiz takes, but goes low and straight at the wall. Yet again Chelsea fail to make the most of a promising opening. Cesar orders his defence to push out.

  • Azpilicuate hangs a cross into the box. Ivanovic has stayed forward, and isn't going back. He doesn't win the header, but the ball drops his way again and he is caught by a rash challenge from Hill right on the edge of the box. Yellow card shown.

  • The corner comes to nothing. QPR have rarely been tested from set-pieces tonight. They are edging towards a much-needed win which could spark a survival surge.

  • Redknapp calling for calm from his players. He still has two changes to make should he wish to do so. On the field, Chelsea force a corner.

  • Hazard halted in the edge of the box. Bertrand takes over. He hits a veru hopeful shot from distance, but wins a corner. Set-piece taken short, before QPR head clear.

  • No nerves from Fabio as he calmly chests the ball back into the arms of Cesar from in front of his own goal. That's what QPR need now, calm heads. They need to dig deep again and hold on if they can.

  • Torres looking to get on the end of a hanging cross. Again he has defenders in his face and get high enough. The ball drops inside the box, where Cesar collapses on it.

  • How will Chelsea respond? They have been knocking on the door for some time, but it won't open. They will feel that they now need two against the side which sits bottom of the table.

  • Ramires on for Lampard.

  • GOAL QPR - WRIGHT-PHILLIPS. Granero swings over the corner and Oscar nods clear. The ball drops to Taarabt, who lays it into the path of SWP. He drills low into the bottom corner from 20 yards out. Great strike. Shock is on!

  • Luiz has a kick out at Granero. Chance for QPR to work Turnbull. The free-kick is a long way out, though, and the visitors take it short. Good choice as SWP wins a corner off Azpilicueta.
