MATCHDAY LIVE: QPR 2 Bolton Wanderers 1

This live event has finished

9:44pm

9:44pm

Will be back online after the interviews with my thoughts on the game. You'll need to switch to the Transfer Live story, though. Will post links on Twitter.

9:43pm

All over. 2-1 to QPR.

9:38pm

Chung-Yong hits a shot over the bar. Took a bobble. 

9:38pm

Jay Spearing lashes one in, via a deflection. Game on for the last few mins.

9:34pm

GOAL Wanderers

9:27pm

Wright-Phillips on for QPR. Could have been a Wanderers player at one time.

9:23pm

Johnson goes sprawling with Lonergan diving at his feet. Thought that was a pen from up here.

9:21pm

Wasted in the end. Medo's shot goes out for a throw.

9:20pm

Good run by Jutkiewicz gives Wanderers a free kick in a decent area.

9:19pm

Chasing the game it's not a decision that I would have made.

9:16pm

Away fans chant "you don't know what you're doing" - assuming in reference to the like for like change.

9:15pm

Jutkiewicz on for his debut. Craig Davies off.

9:13pm

Green makes another brilliant stop from Medo, then stifles Chung-Yong's follow up.

9:12pm

Chung-Yong has an effort tipped over the top by Green. Great save. Fine run from Mark Davies too.

9:11pm

QPR starting to gang up on White now too. Mistake by the youngster presented a chance for Austin. Great block by Mills.

9:10pm

Wanderers fans staying with the team. Can't fault the effort tonight but there is an undoubted extra bit of quality about QPR at times.

9:06pm

Chungy coming on for Danns

9:05pm

Ball defnitely being worked out to Phillips on the right as often as possible. He's barely left the touchline.

9:04pm

QPR 's tails are up now. Freedman must be thinking about a change.

9:01pm

Pratley dips a half vo;lley over Green but just the wrong side of the post.

9:00pm

That could be game over. Corner cleared to the edge of the box and Karl Henry was there to smash home a half volley into the bottom corner. Great finish.

8:58pm

GOAL QPR

8:58pm

Johnson cross forces Mills into an emergency clearance in front of goal.

8:55pm

Attendance tonigt at Loftus Road - 15,097 (520 away)

8:54pm

8:45pm

Very DJ Ray Vonn

8:45pm

The man on the tannoy is trying to explain an overcomplicated half-time game. Can't hear a word he's saying.

8:39pm

Cruel. Very cruel. Wanderers have worked hard, stayed compact and QPR had offered nothing until the goal. But that's maybe why they're second and the Whites are struggling.

8:38pm

8:35pm

On balance of play Wanderers have been the better team - but that's the hand they have been dealt now. And QPR are pressing for a second.

8:34pm

Currently in seven mins added time. Goal came from Phillips' cross on the right - Austin's header at the far post. QPR don't deserve it at all.

8:33pm

Temporary IT problem. Hopefully fixed.

8:27pm

GOAL QPR

8:25pm

Johnson blasts one well over the bar from distance. 

8:24pm

But if Wanderers don't go in at least level, it will be a crime.

8:24pm

There will be a good few mins of injury time you'd expect in this half.

8:22pm

Rob Green just watched it from all of 25 yards. Amazing effort.

8:21pm

Oh my word - an absolutely astonishing effort from Craig Davies has just cannoned off the bar.

8:20pm

Pratley has done well this first 34 mins. Won a lot in the air and closed QPR down.

8:17pm

Have to say, Andy D'Urso being very kind to Wanderers so far.

8:16pm

White getting himself up to speed now. Nice challenge on the right against Krancjar brings a chant from the travelling fans.

8:14pm

Home fans starting to get frustrated. This is the 25 minutes DF wanted. Where from here?

8:12pm

No visible problems with a lack of width so far for Wanderers - in fact they are picking off some very poor passes in the middle.

8:10pm

Craig Davies shoots from just inside the box. Side netting. Thought that was in.

8:09pm

Craig Davies and Darren Pratley charging everywhere for Wanderers.

8:06pm

Hayden White has looked a little shaky early on - but has maintained a safety first approach, which is fine.

8:04pm

Charlie Austin has just been patched up after falling heavily on his shoulder. QPR picking up pace now.

8:01pm

Danns plays Pratley through in the left channel - he blasts left-footed just wide.

7:58pm

QPR respond - Phillips whips a good cross in from right that drops just over Austin

7:57pm

Brilliant effort from Davies.

7:56pm

Mark Davies does well to pick Clint Hill's pocket in his own area, pulls a cross back for Pratley but his shot is blocked brilliantly by Assou-Ekotto.

7:54pm

Wanderers have reacted well - Davies and Pratley buzzing about. Baptiste wins a corner with a great surging run.

7:52pm

Baptiste has gone to the left, as you'd expect. White playing right-back.

7:51pm

Ream straight down the tunnel. Had to be helped off by two medical staff.

7:50pm

White on for Ream. Dreadful start for Wanderers

7:50pm

Ream out on his feet. It'll be Hayden White for his debut I'd expect.

7:49pm

Going to have to change!

7:48pm

Medical staff are on - he looks quite groggy.

7:47pm

Fifteen seconds on the clock and Tim Ream has taken a hit. Clashed with Charlie Austin.

7:46pm

7:45pm

Anyway, to the game going on down there...

7:45pm

The commentators are wearing ginormous scarves too. Look like boa constrictors.

7:45pm

QPR have also rather helpfully put the Liverpool derby on the screens in front of us too. Judging by David Ginola's face, it's cold on Merseyside.

7:43pm

Wanderers in that orange kit. Depending on the result tonight I could definitely go off it...

7:42pm

Small ground Loftus Road but by no means full tonight. 

7:41pm

Finally the players emerge from the tunnel.

7:41pm

Now the Theme From Mission Impossible. Quite apt.

7:40pm

Coldplay... not necessarily the most adrenaline-pumping music you'll hear.

7:38pm

Right - players about to come out on to the pitch, it seems.

7:33pm

7:31pm

Well, judging by the flak Freedman has got pre-match, we might be in for a long old night if Wanderers don't get a result.

7:30pm

7:29pm

Nice friendly club too. Had Harry Redknapp say hello in reception and Charlie Austin hold the door open for us already this evening. Hope that hospitality is extended to the pitch.

7:28pm

Nice blend of experience and grit (Henry/Hill/Dunne) and style (Austin/Krancjar)

7:27pm

Looking down that QPR squad list, I refuse to believe that they are not going to go up this season.

Would have liked to see hall start personally, think he adds a real threat. Would have rested chungy he has played too many games recently and a rest might do him good.

7:24pm

It's not warm here. Rather regretting grabbing a bottle of pop to take to the press box instead of a brew.

7:22pm

Yes, it's London Calling.

7:22pm

Good to hear The Clash being played at Loftus Road. 

7:21pm

 
Don't think so. Will check afterwards though.

7:18pm

7:18pm

 
Haven't heard of any injury. Think with Eagles/Chungy there are enough wide men.

7:17pm

7:16pm

Did someone give you fruit for pudding? Cheer up.

Interesting line-up would have rested Spearing though, Medo and Spearing don't seem to play well together, What formation is it we are playing? 4-3-3?

 

Imagine it will be 4-2-3-1.

7:13pm

Two changes to the team - Chungy and Eagles out, Mark Davies and Pratley in. What do you think?

7:06pm

So - up in the press box now. Bit of rain swirling around in the chilly air. But a decent night for football.

6:54pm

QPR team to face BWFC: Green; Assou-Ekotto, Dunne, Hill, Traore, Kranjcar, Henry, Carroll, Phillips, Johnson, Austin

Subs: Murphy, Hoilett, Diakite, Zamora, Wright-Phillips, Ehmer

6:53pm

BWFC subs v QPR: subs: Bogdan, White, Vela, Eagles, Lee, Moritz, Jutkiewicz

6:52pm

BWFC team to face QPR: Lonergan, Baptiste, Knight, Mills, Ream, Spearing, Medo, Danns, Pratley, M Davies, C Davies

6:47pm

I hope you are right. QPR don't give much away at home but they don't score that many either. DF reckons the first quarter of the game will be pivotal. I'd go along with that.

6:46pm

6:45pm

Still don't expect to be back in bed until gone 3am this morning, though. zzzzzz

6:44pm

Love these 7.45pm kick offs. An extra 15 minutes to toil away after the final whistle makes all the difference!

I'm hoping there has been a 22 game blip in there somewhere.

Good luck Lukas.

COYWM

Maybe it is actually time BWFC thumped someone??? I think they know what it like to be on the receiving end at Loftus Rd.

6:38pm

I'd echo that. Not going to judge him on one performance - but can't help but feel a good display tonight would do him the world of good.

6:36pm

6:28pm Tue 28 Jan 14

stevethewanderer says

Looks like one of our players already ! Need I say more, hope he proves me wrong

6:36pm

Will Jutkiewicz go straight into the side tonight? Mark Davies should be restored after being rested against Cardiff and you'd imagine Andre Moritz would be another strong contender.

6:32pm

Just been joined in the press room by Simon Charlton. With all the problems Wanderers have been having in defence, I think he could still get a game.

6:23pm

Sixteen places and 24 points between the two sides at start of play.

6:22pm

Big night tonight for the new Wanderers loan signing. Start off on the wrong foot and you can ask another Polish name from the past, Grzegorz Rasiak, where that leads you.

6:19pm

I can only assume he has just stood on a piece of Lego.

6:18pm

I'm hoping Lukas Jutkiewicz has a happier expression on his face tonight after he was signed in time to face QPR.

6:18pm

The Bolton News: PLENTY TO SHOUT ABOUT Lukas Jutkiewicz sounds a battle cry after netting a brilliant equaliser

6:14pm

Good evening from Loftus Road. Welcome to Matchday Live!

We need to be wary of calling for the Managers head as although most would agree he's not Management material once he's gone P.G. will be appointing his replacement and I'm afraid that prospect fills most of us with dread.
