    • Bolton Wanderers
    • Queens Park Rangers
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • - Let me know what you thought of that match, and the first-half decision to deny Hill a goal, on Twitter now. Get in contact with @tomEurosport on Twitter
    • 90+5' FULL TIME. A controversial afternoon at the Reebok Stadium but the upshot is a huge, huge win for Bolton Wanderers. Klasnic with a late winner but Hill was denied a clear goal at 0-0.
    • 90+5' A Kenny free kick flies out of play and that must be that.
    • 90+4' Bogdan drops a free kick under pressure from Zamora but Bolton are able to scramble the ball clear. It looks as though Bolton will hold on.
    • 90+2' QPR want a penalty when Reo-Coker appears to clatter into a challenge on Onuoha on the box but play is waved on. Eagles had also appeared to handle just before. This is becoming frantic now.
    • 90+1' We will have four minutes of added time.
    • 89' Fabrice Muamba comes on for Ngog as Bolton attempt to hold onto their lead.
    • 87' GOAL! Bolton 2-1 QPR! Substitute Klasnic with what must be the winner! Lovely from Miyiachi as he pulls the ball down, takes a touch and then slips in a fine pass for Klasnic, who steadies himself before firing home into the far corner.
    • 85' Davies plays the ball to the left of the box for Eagles but his shot is blocked by Onuoha. Excellent work from the defender.
    • 84' Diakite goes into the book - his third yellow in two games - for a foul on Miyaichi.
    • 82' Chance for QPR! Chaos in the Bolton box as the home side fail to clear and after Diakite sees two efforts blocked, a follow-up from Mackie takes a touch off the head of Wheater and deflects over!
    • 81' Ivan Klasnic also replaces Darren Pratley for Bolton as both sides look to win the game.
    • 80' Three changes for QPR with Akos Buzsaky, Jamie Mackie and Armand Traore on for Derry, Wirght-Phillips and Traore.
    • 79' A Barton cross from the right loops up into the air and bounces into the path of Cisse with his back to goal. He attempts an overhead kick but doesn't quite execute it properly.
    • 78' Ricketts does well to get to the byline and get a cross into the box but it soars a bit too long for another of his team-mates to get on the end of it.
    • 77' Onuoha, on another foray forward, wins a free kick 20 yards from goal as he is brought down by a clumsy challenge. Zamora is charged with taking the set piece but slams his effort into the wall. Poor from the striker.
    • 75' Stat from Infostrada: "QPR have scored only four PL goals in the last 20 minutes of matches this season – fewer than any other club."
    • 73' It is Eagles who takes the free kick but his effort strikes the top of the wall and loops up into the air.
    • 72' Shaun Derry brings down Eagles 20 yards from goal as the sub makes an immediate impact.
    • 71' The first change of the game as Chris Eagles comes on for Petrov.
    • 70' Rather incredibly, the FA has just issued a statement underlining its support for goal-line technology in light of the Hill incident, and we haven't even finished here!
    • 69' It's a poor delivery from Barton as Bolton clear, but the visitors win another set piece soon after. Barton's latest attempt is claimed by Bogdan.
    • 68' Diakite pings in a cross from the right to try and pick out Cisse but Wheater is alert as he heads behind for another corner.
    • 67' Nice work from Bogdan as he claims a cross under pressure from QPR.
    • 66' Stat from Infostrada: "Bolton have now conceded 34 second half goals this season – only Blackburn (35) have conceded more after half time."
    • 64' More nice work from Miyiachi as he wins a corner. The Japanese star then takes the set piece and finds Wheater, who hooks a poor effort high into the air.
    • 63' Miyaichi takes the subsequent free kick but Hill heads clear for QPR. Bolton win the ball back and a cross from Petrov is then cleared.
    • 61' Onuoha clatters into Petrov with a rash challenge and is booked as a result. The winger winces with pain as he clutches his ankle.
    • 60' Ricketts cuts in from the left and sends a curling effort well off target. That was very much the shot of a left-back.
    • 59' Diakite slips a nice pass in for Cisse and the Frenchman forces Bodgan into a smart low save at his near post.
    • 58' QPR have been impressive in this second half and fully deserve to be on level terms. However, clear chances are few and far between at present.
    • 56' Miyaichi with a nice touch under pressure to keep a Bolton move alive but QPR head clear as the danger passes.
    • 55' Stat from Infostrada: "Djibril Cisse is the second QPR player this season to score in back-to-back PL away matches in which he played, after Luke Young in November."
    • 53' Petrov tries to run onto a ball into the left channel but can't collect.
    • 52' Stat from Infostrada: "QPR have now conceded in each of their last 19 PL matches – their longest ever PL run without a clean sheet and longest in the top flight since a 20-match streak from November 1978 to April 1979."
    • 51' Stat from Infostrada: "Bolton have now conceded 57 goals this season, exceeding the total tally for the whole of last season (56)."
    • 49' So, one poor decision cancelled out by another?
    • 48' GOAL! Bolton 1-1 QPR! Wright-Phillips pokes a pass through to Cisse which takes a deflection off Pratley, yet although the striker is offside he is allowed to stick the ball home for 1-1. It touched a Bolton player, yes, but Cisse was offside when the original pass was played.
    • 47' A measured start to the second half from both sides.
    • 46' KICK OFF!
    • - Oisin O Murchu nominates "The famous Carroll 'save' Man Utd vs Tottenham. As a United fan it still makes me laugh." Have your say on Twitter
    • - Sam Millward suggests two more shocking decisions from down the years: "The Lampard non-goal in at the World Cup. Does the 'Ghost goal' count as well?" Get in contact on Twitter
    • - Have you seen a worse goal-line decision than that? Let me know on Twitter. Follow @tomEurosport on Twitter.
    • 45+2' HALF TIME. Hill shakes his head as QPR go in 1-0 down after being denied a clear goal.
    • 45+1' We will have two minutes of added time.
    • 45' Cisse and Zamora combine before an angled pass to the right of the box finds Onuoha, who sees his low effort saved well by Bogdan. That was a decent chance.
    • 44' Thankfully Davies appears to be okay. He hobbles off but should be back on in no time.
    • 43' Ouch. Onuoha makes a genuine attempt to win the ball but accidentally treads on Davies's outstretched leg. The Bolton midfielder requires treatment.
    • 41' QPR have clearly been the better side but Bolton possess a valuable lead.
    • 39' Stat from Opta: "Bolton have dropped fewer points than any other team from winning positions this season (2)."
    • 38' Wright-Phillips gets a shot all wrong for QPR. They must be absolutely furious at the moment.
    • 37' GOAL! Bolton 1-0 QPR! And the injustice is compounded as Pratley heads home unmarked from close range! Miyaichi took a free kick short to Davies, who in turn found Petrov under pressure. Tim Ream was then released on the left and he picked out Pratley in acres of space.
    • 36' Diakite clatters into a challenge but referee Martin Atkinson misses it. The QPR midfielder lucky not to be penalised.
    • 35' Ngog wants a penalty when going down all too easily in the box. Hill is furious with the striker's attempt to con the referee and nothing is given.
    • 33' Stat from Opta: "Bolton have kept just two clean sheets in their last 16 Premier League games on home soil."
    • 31' Cisse wriggles away from Wheater and the Bolton defender is shown a yellow card when his response is to pull the shirt of the QPR striker.
    • 30' Miyaichi puts a cross in from the right for Ngog but Kenny is alert and meets the ball first.
    • 28' A cross bounces its way into the path of Cisse and then Zamora, but Wheater is on hand to clear for Bolton.
    • 27' Well there is little doubt about the big talking-point so far from today's game. It really was as clear as daylight that the ball had crossed the line, so much so that the TV directors changed the scoreline on their graphic.
    • 25' Stat from Infostrada: "It is over three months since a Bolton striker scored a PL goal at the Reebok Stadium – Ivan Klasnic in the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on December 10."
    • 24' Zamora knocks the ball down well for Wright-Phillips and he takes a bouncing ball high with a neat volley that goes just inches wide of the post.
    • 23' Pratley goes into the book for a poor challenge on Diakite.
    • 22' It is a week since IFAB said goal-line technology is coming closer and closer but it hasn't come soon enough for Mark Hughes, who was left furious on the touchline.
    • 20' A terrible decision! Clint Hill gets his head to a corner from Joey Barton and it goes about a foot over the line before Adam Bogdan gets his wrist to it and turns it onto the underside of the bar. It's clearly a goal but the linesman doesn't spot it. Shocking officiating.
    • 18' QPR hit the bar! A lovely passing move from QPR around the Bolton box and Cisse chips a pass out to Zamora, who first delays and then hammers a firm left-footed effort against the woodwork from an angle.
    • 16' Bolton head clear from Barton's delivery and QPR break through Ngog, who sees a cross-field pass to Petrov cut out easily.
    • 15' Wright-Phillips turns the ball square to Barton following a deflected cross from Cisse and the midfielder's shot is deflected behind for a corner by Ricketts.
    • 14' Miyaichi's cross is turned behind by Hill for a corner. The Japanese youngster delivers the corner and Anton Ferdinand is forced to head behind when David Wheater connects with the cross. The second corner is cleared by Barton.
    • 12' Steinsson commits a rather messy foul on Shaun Wright-Phillips as the somewhat gritty nature of this game continues.
    • 11' Now Mark Davies accelerates into space and slips in Ngog, who produces a weak effort that causes Paddy Kenny no problem in the QPR goal.
    • 11' The first attempt of the game goes to Ngog. He does superbly to take a pass from Miyaichi and dink it round his marker to get into the box, but drags his shot well, well wide.
    • 10' Sam Ricketts plays a pass 10 yards to Tim Ream but puts the ball straight out of play. Very poor, but QPR can't capitalise as an attack peters out.
    • 9' Diakite already guilty of a messy challenge on Miyaichi as he brings the winger down. No booking this time though.
    • 8' Darren Pratley gets in behind the defence to collect a clever pass from Steinsson but can't pick out a Bolton shirt with his cross. The Trotters then win a throw on the opposite side of the pitch.
    • 6' One player capable of supplying quality is young Japanese winger Ryo Miyaichi, on loan at Bolton from Arsenal. He slips a pass square and then attempts to pick up the return down the line but Clint Hill comes across to intercept.
    • 5' As Joey Barton hoofs the ball 50 yards down the pitch, this game has already taken on a rather joyless nature. Let's hope we see some quality on display.
    • 4' David Ngog wrestles the ball off Onuoha in the final third but after playing a short pass to Martin Petrov he is in an offside position when receiving the ball back.
    • 3' Onuoha, again, gets his head to the ball and clears. As QPR race up the other end, Djibril Cisse puts Gretar Steinsson under pressure but Bolton win the goal kick.
    • 2' Nigel Reo-Coker darts into the box to collect a pass from Mark Davies and wins a corner off Shaun Derry. An early chance for Bolton and Nedum Onuoha clears behind for another corner.
    • 1' KICK OFF!
    • 12:45 Stat from Infostrada: "There have been 50 PL red cards this season – with Bolton and QPR picking up the most (five each)."

    • 12:35 More stats from Opta: "Bolton have won five and lost none of their last six league meetings with QPR. Bolton have taken 10 points against the other teams in the current bottom five, the joint-best record along with Wolves. The Trotters have won just two of their last 15 league matches at the Reebok Stadium, losing 11."
    • 12:30 Stats from Opta: "QPR have dropped the most points from winning positions in the Premier League this season (15). Bolton have dropped fewer points than any other team from winning positions this season (2)."
    • 12:25 On the opening day of the season, Bolton hammered QPR 4-0 at Loftus Road. Things look a lot gloomier now though. Injuries have taken their toll on Owen Coyle's squad but they have also played some poor football on the way and have now lost four in a row. Coyle has urged his side to be at their best today.
    • 12:20 This, of course, is a huge game at the bottom of the table. Bolton are currently 19th, with 20 points from 27 games, while QPR are only two points above them in 16th. Rangers have won just two of nine games under new manager Mark Hughes and he admits they must start taking points from every game now.
    • 12:15 Bolton stick with Adam Bogdan in goal despite the fact Jussi Jaaskelainen is fit and on the bench, while Ivan Klasnic and Chris Eagles are unable to get into the starting XI. However, Marcos Alonso has not returned following the death of his grandfather. Adel Taarabt does not make it for QPR, who give another chance to Diakite after his debut - a 1-0 home defeat to Fulham - was ended after 33 minutes by a red card.

    • 12:05 Some early team news filters in and Bolton make one change as Martin Petrov comes in for Zat Knight. Meanwhile, QPR bring Djibril Cisse and Samba Diakite back into their starting line-up following the end of their suspensions.
