MATCHDAY LIVE: QPR 2 Bolton Wanderers 1
This live event has finished
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.
All over. 2-1 to QPR.
Chung-Yong hits a shot over the bar. Took a bobble.
Jay Spearing lashes one in, via a deflection. Game on for the last few mins.
Wright-Phillips on for QPR. Could have been a Wanderers player at one time.
Johnson goes sprawling with Lonergan diving at his feet. Thought that was a pen from up here.
Wasted in the end. Medo's shot goes out for a throw.
Good run by Jutkiewicz gives Wanderers a free kick in a decent area.
Chasing the game it's not a decision that I would have made.
Away fans chant "you don't know what you're doing" - assuming in reference to the like for like change.
Jutkiewicz on for his debut. Craig Davies off.
Green makes another brilliant stop from Medo, then stifles Chung-Yong's follow up.
Chung-Yong has an effort tipped over the top by Green. Great save. Fine run from Mark Davies too.
QPR starting to gang up on White now too. Mistake by the youngster presented a chance for Austin. Great block by Mills.
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.
Chungy coming on for Danns
Ball defnitely being worked out to Phillips on the right as often as possible. He's barely left the touchline.
QPR 's tails are up now. Freedman must be thinking about a change.
Pratley dips a half vo;lley over Green but just the wrong side of the post.
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.
Johnson cross forces Mills into an emergency clearance in front of goal.
Attendance tonigt at Loftus Road - 15,097 (520 away)
Very DJ Ray Vonn
The man on the tannoy is trying to explain an overcomplicated half-time game. Can't hear a word he's saying.
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.
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.
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.
Temporary IT problem. Hopefully fixed.
Johnson blasts one well over the bar from distance.
But if Wanderers don't go in at least level, it will be a crime.
There will be a good few mins of injury time you'd expect in this half.
Rob Green just watched it from all of 25 yards. Amazing effort.
Oh my word - an absolutely astonishing effort from Craig Davies has just cannoned off the bar.
Pratley has done well this first 34 mins. Won a lot in the air and closed QPR down.
Have to say, Andy D'Urso being very kind to Wanderers so far.
White getting himself up to speed now. Nice challenge on the right against Krancjar brings a chant from the travelling fans.
Home fans starting to get frustrated. This is the 25 minutes DF wanted. Where from here?
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.
Craig Davies shoots from just inside the box. Side netting. Thought that was in.
Craig Davies and Darren Pratley charging everywhere for Wanderers.
Hayden White has looked a little shaky early on - but has maintained a safety first approach, which is fine.
Charlie Austin has just been patched up after falling heavily on his shoulder. QPR picking up pace now.
Danns plays Pratley through in the left channel - he blasts left-footed just wide.
QPR respond - Phillips whips a good cross in from right that drops just over Austin
Brilliant effort from Davies.
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.
Wanderers have reacted well - Davies and Pratley buzzing about. Baptiste wins a corner with a great surging run.
Baptiste has gone to the left, as you'd expect. White playing right-back.
Ream straight down the tunnel. Had to be helped off by two medical staff.
White on for Ream. Dreadful start for Wanderers
Ream out on his feet. It'll be Hayden White for his debut I'd expect.
Going to have to change!
Medical staff are on - he looks quite groggy.
Fifteen seconds on the clock and Tim Ream has taken a hit. Clashed with Charlie Austin.
Anyway, to the game going on down there...
The commentators are wearing ginormous scarves too. Look like boa constrictors.
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.
Wanderers in that orange kit. Depending on the result tonight I could definitely go off it...
Small ground Loftus Road but by no means full tonight.
Finally the players emerge from the tunnel.
Now the Theme From Mission Impossible. Quite apt.
Coldplay... not necessarily the most adrenaline-pumping music you'll hear.
Right - players about to come out on to the pitch, it seems.
@MarcIles Not sure on the starting 11, I can't understand the point of playing with no wingers when we have no full backs.— @aaron_bwfc 28 January 2014
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.
@MarcIles whats df playing at we never play well with that formation should have played 4 4 2 donna and nick blackpool whites— @nicholascoop1 28 January 2014
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.
Nice blend of experience and grit (Henry/Hill/Dunne) and style (Austin/Krancjar)
Looking down that QPR squad list, I refuse to believe that they are not going to go up this season.

Get forward and have a go df goes on about nurturing young talent, well unleash him a bit more he must be chomping at the bit.

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.
It's not warm here. Rather regretting grabbing a bottle of pop to take to the press box instead of a brew.
Yes, it's London Calling.
Good to hear The Clash being played at Loftus Road.
@MarcIles sounds solid rather than attacking! Rumours of Marc Albrighton signing any truth in it? #BWFC— @mdowen1974 28 January 2014
@BBDJFL @MarcIles Hope they've parked the team coach in front of the right net....— @Azreal88 28 January 2014
@MarcIles where is hall Marc? Injured? Or just missed out due to Lee/Eagles on bench?— @armitage93 28 January 2014
@MarcIles How narrow is that?— @jckryn 28 January 2014
@MarcIles May work but on paper it's so negative. Basically 5 central midfielders— @StevoNR 28 January 2014
@MarcIles Who knows, Marc.Play with 2 up,lose hatful of goals,play 1 up,lose hatful of goals.QPR will have to be bad for us to get anything— @ppainsworth 28 January 2014
@MarcIles not kept a clean sheet in 6 games conceeded 17 behind the couch tonight— @petermarkb 28 January 2014
@MarcIles hate to say it but I'm glad Chungy isn't playing !— @sterambo1967 28 January 2014
@MarcIles pathetic and cowardly selection, reminds me of Megson. He is just hoping not to lose by too many. He has to go— @tim_rigby 28 January 2014
@MarcIles too defensive, just give them the points now! #bwfc— @CalllumAnderson 28 January 2014
@MarcIles going to be a narrow game I think !— @geeivers 28 January 2014

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.
Two changes to the team - Chungy and Eagles out, Mark Davies and Pratley in. What do you think?
So - up in the press box now. Bit of rain swirling around in the chilly air. But a decent night for football.
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
BWFC subs v QPR: subs: Bogdan, White, Vela, Eagles, Lee, Moritz, Jutkiewicz
BWFC team to face QPR: Lonergan, Baptiste, Knight, Mills, Ream, Spearing, Medo, Danns, Pratley, M Davies, C Davies
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.
@MarcIles what about a win?.....we've got nowt to loose go and express yourself and play with no fear I say no one expects us to win anyway— @moncur01 28 January 2014
Still don't expect to be back in bed until gone 3am this morning, though. zzzzzz
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.
Maybe it is actually time BWFC thumped someone??? I think they know what it like to be on the receiving end at Loftus Rd.
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.
6:28pm Tue 28 Jan 14
Looks like one of our players already ! Need I say more, hope he proves me wrong
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.
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.
Sixteen places and 24 points between the two sides at start of play.
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.
I can only assume he has just stood on a piece of Lego.
I'm hoping Lukas Jutkiewicz has a happier expression on his face tonight after he was signed in time to face QPR.
Good evening from Loftus Road. Welcome to Matchday Live!
