    • 90+4' FULL-TIME! Wolves do it! QPR seemingly unlucky to lose Cisse, but Wolves threw men forward and absolutely dominated the second half. Much for Hughes to ponder, and the pressure will ease just a little for McCarthy.
    • 90+4' Doyle on a wriggly, infuriating run down to the right hand corner flag. Whistles ringing out in frustration at Loftus Road.
    • 90+3' Mark Hughes looking very irritated on the touchline. His side have had two leads in the last week and look set to come away from those games with a total of one point.
    • 90+2' It's Wolves's turn to win a throw upfield - and they are slowing things right down. This would be a priceless three points if they hold on.
    • 90+1' FERDINAND CLOSE! He drags a low shot from near the penalty spot just wide of the far post, and holds his head. It was a good chance.
    • 90' Four extra minutes to be played - QPR have spent the last minute camped in the Wolves half.
    • 89' Taarabt tries a shot from 25 yards with the outside of his boot. Mighty greedy, but remarkably it was very close. He's been the best player on the park for the last 20 minutes.
    • 88' Hall lines up a long throw into the penalty area. It's not a Delap special by any means.
    • 87' Milijas replaces O'Hara. As you were. Five minutes left in this one.
    • 86' Wolves win a throw right by their own corner flag. They're slowing things down with their final substitution...
    • 85' Taarabt tries to thread a ball through Hulse, but it's cut out. 10-man QPR are dominating now.
    • 84' BARTON CLOSE! The pressure building as Barton tries a vicious shot frm range which only just misses wide.
    • 83' SWP the latest to try his luck, and his blocked effort is out for a corner. Wolves are getting nervous, and the crowd are urging QPR on for one last go.
    • 82' WHAT A SHOT FROM TAARABT! Absolutely sensational hit from best part of 40 yards after a series of stepovers, and Hennessey had to be at his best to save it.
    • 81' Taarabt has come far more central and suddenly looks like he could be a matchwinner.
    • 80' Suddenly, it's proper end-to-end fare - Taarabt's low angled cross almost picked out Hulse. There are goals left in this game.
    • 79' At the other end a hit from distance from Taarabt! Hennessey had it covered, but it bounced just in front of him and he had to spill his save around the post for a corner.
    • 78' JARVIS SO CLOSE! He was picked out on the left side of the penalty area and turned Onuoha one way and then the other before forcing a save from Kenny!
    • 77' Good hit from Traore from 20 yards, surging through the middle. Henessey gets down well to grab.
    • 76' QPR have had a decision taken out of their hands here - they will have been torn about whether to protect what they had or look for a winner - but no choice now, they have to attack.
    • 75' QPR getting forward for the first time in a while. Wright-Phillips can't play the killer cross, but he does win a throw.
    • 74' Zamora off, Hulse on. Interestingly, no sign of Federico Macheda, who's not even on the bench today.
    • 73' Zamora's debut coming to an end...
    • 72' It had been coming. Wolves in total control in the second half, and it's good to see attacking intent rewarded. But QPR ruing that red card.
    • 71' WOLVES AHEAD! GREAT MOVE! O'Hara with an angled cross to to Ebanks-Blake on the edge of the box - the striker lifts it into Doyle's path, who tucks away with style.
    • 69' Fletcher breaks after a QPR corner breaks down. A good move, with Fletcher, Doyle and Ebanks-Blake in the thick of it, but QPR fight it off, with Barton making the final clearance.
    • 68' Wolves in control of the match, but it's been just a little while now since they last fashioned a clear-cut chance.
    • 67' Jarivs sent to chase a through ball down the left flank - just beyond him on this occasion.
    • 66' Young was being given the runaround by Jarvis in the last 20 minutes. Someone else's responsibility now.
    • 65' Fitz Hall on for Luke Young, who just looked as if he had hurt himself in the moments before the substitution.
    • 64' Here comes the switch - Derry off, Traore on. And there's a second change happening too..
    • 63' Perhaps a surprise it has taken this long, but Hughes is preparing a substitution.
    • 62' Ball heaved forward by the home side, WOlves win it back once more. Jarvis tries to flick the ball on, no team-mate reads his intentions.
    • 61' QPR just short of ideas at the moment. A Young run down the line ends up going nowhere in particular.
    • 60' Kevin Doyle flicks on a cross, and his header rattles not all that far past the far post.
    • 59' Taiwo with a throw from deep in his own half, straight back to Wolves. QPR looking a little shell-shocked.
    • 58' O'Hara the latest to try his luck from distance - equally unsuccessful.
    • 57' Are Wolves just losing a touch of their momentum after an electrfying start to the second half? Ebanks-Blake snatches at a long-range shot.
    • 56' Second half possession - 34-66% the way of QPR. Taarabt tries the shot from the free kick, but it whistles just wide, and Hennessey would have had it covered.
    • 55' Here come Young and Wright-Phillips on a rare foray forward. Wright-Phillips gets the ball caught under his feet as he waits for support - but wins a free kick 35 yards out.
    • 54' Wolves last came back to win a PL away match on the opening day of the season – a 2-1 victory at Blackburn. (Infostrada)
    • 53' Doyle tests out Kenny with a well-struck shot from the edge of the area. McCarthy getting his side to open up here, and it's paying off.
    • 52' QPR IN GOAL-LINE SCRAMBLE! Fletcher and Ebanks-Blake both within inches of putting Wolves ahead, and somehow the ball stays out. More great work from Jarvis on the left, but Ferdinand managed the desperate clearance.
    • 51' Zamora seems to be telling Bassong that he caught him with his elbow in the jaw - Bassong doesn't look interested.
    • 51' Matt Jarvis scored his second Premier League goal of the season and first since August. The club have won the last three Premier League matches in which he has found the net. (Infostrada)
    • 50' Mark Hughes watched his side spurn a 2-0 lead at Aston Villa in midweek. They look like they could do the same today.
    • 49' FLETCHER HITS THE CROSSBAR! The ball bounces around from one side to the other, Foley comes back with a cross frome the left, and Fletcher's header rattles off the woodwork.
    • 48' Jarvis sends a testing cross into the area, Ferdinand turns it away for a corner.
    • 47' Cisse is the fourth Frenchman to be sent off in the division this season after Gael Clichy, Younes Kaboul abd Gael Givet. Only England (16) have been had more red cards. (Infostrada)
    • 46' AND THAT'S WHY! GOAL FOR WOLVES! JARVIS LEVELS! Ebanks-Blake laid it off, Jarvis shimmied his way past Luke Young, and hits a crucial equaliser. Game on at Loftus Road.
    • 46' Stearman the man to make way for Doyle. Another atackign change. Wolves going after this.
    • 46' Second half begins! Change for Wolves - Kevin Doyle coming on. Just working out who for...

    • 45+4' HALF-TIME: QPR deservedly ahead, but down to 10-men. Cisse red highly debateable, the crowd incensed. Hughes standing still, waiting for a word with the referee. Could be a very lively second half.
    • 45+3' Lovely move - one-twos and first-time passes aplenty before Jarvis gets a chance to shoot from 20 yards - and he skies it over the bar.
    • 45+2' Wright-Phillips and Taarabt combining on the right, but the chance to cross never materialises. Wolves win it back and surge forward through Foley.
    • 45+1' Three minutes of added time to play in the first half.
    • 45' Bassong and Wright-Phillips collide, and Bassong's clumsy challenge is punished by a yellow card.
    • 44' QPR worked backwards after the corner. Johnson carries on forward, only to sweep the ball crossfield back to Bassong.
    • 43' QPR with a corner - it's held up as Ward is given a talking to by the referee.
    • 42' Stearman's turn to try to get Wolves going - the ball is lofted up towards Fletcher, who's caught offside. This is the football of a side in a bad run of form.
    • 41' Bassong tries to begin another Wolves move. It's a bad pass to Jarvis, but the England international recovers it. O'Hara forced backwards.
    • 40' The game really seems to have turned sour since the sending off. QPR fans in full voice, directing their anger at Mark Clattenburg. Wolves not making their man advantage count yet, and you sense both managers would quite like their players in for a half-time team talk.
    • 39' Ominous? Djibril Cisse is the fourth QPR player to be sent off, and second in 2012 after Joey Barton. All four have happened at Loftus Road and the club have failed to win each of them. (Infostrada)
    • 38' I should add that Johnson got a yellow for the challenge, which was lost in the melee.
    • 37' Whistles ringing out around Loftus Road as Wolves pass the ball around. They have a great opportunity to turn this match around if they keep their heads.
    • 36' QPR not at all happy. Hughes looks bemused, giving Cisse a consolatory pat on the back as he goes down the tunnel. Taarabt still arguing with Clattenburg.
    • 35' Well, that's a very controversial call. Cisse didn't like the challenge one bit (and Johnson's tackle was a poor one), and he certainly touched Johnson as if to pull him around and confront him - he may have got Johnson quite near the throat too. But there was nothing more than that. Clattenburg will point to a violent reaction, but it looks very harsh to me.
    • 34' RED CARD FOR CISSE! What happened there? He looked to have been caught by a poor challenge from Johnson, and he's the one sent off - did he retaliate?
    • 33' Great run from Cisse down the left, but he cannot pick Shaun Wright-Phillips out with the cross.
    • 32' Decent ball in from Foley, but Kenny gathers.
    • 31' Derry chases down Stearman as he makes a clearance and catches him with his foot. Stern telling off for Derry, but after what looks to be some debate Clattenburg opts against the booking.
    • 31' Good ball in from Barton - Onuoha very close to the header, but Johnson glanced it away just enough to deny him.
    • 30' QPR send the bodies forward for a set piece, with Barton standing over it on the right wing.
    • 29' CLOSE FROM FLETCHER! Whipped free-kick, over the wall and aimed low at the near post. Just wide.
    • 28' Throw-in near the byline for Wolves, with Ward almost jinking his way into the box. The move going nowhere until Ferdinand bundled into Steven Fletcher as the Wolves man was going for a header. That gives the visitors a useful free-kick chance.
    • 27' Free-kick for Wolves, who the stats say have actually had 57% of the possession to this point. They go short and down the left, with O'Hara and Jarvis combining.
    • 26' Almost an immediate lift for Wolves! Nice move down the left with Jarvis involved, and Ebanks-Blake just unable to get control of the resulting cross - he ends up looping a free header nowhere in particular.
    • 25' Ebanks-Blake replaces Frimpong as Wolves make an attacking change.
    • 24' You can hear Mick McCarthy's voice over the Loftus Road crowd. It says more about the manager than the stadium.
    • 23' Play resumes. Nice cross from QPR on the right goes out for a throw - Cisse furiously claims QPR were due the throw. Not sure why.
    • 22' Frimpong's injury looks serious - he's hobbling off and putting no pressure at all on his right foot. That's worse news still for Wolves, who are going to have to make a change here.
    • 21' Frimpong and Barton collide in a challenge on the halfway line - Frimpong comes off worse. He's down receiving a bit of attention from the Wolves' physios.
    • 20' As Eurosport's resident Fulham fan has just pointed out, they could do with a striker like Zamora down at Craven Cottage...
    • 19' Problems for Wolves, then. Mick McCarthy looks animated on the touchline, but then again that's always true.
    • 18' Bobby Zamora scores on his debut for QPR. It is his first ever debut goal for his fourth club in the division. He also becomes the 11th different player in Premier League history to score for three different London clubs. (Infostrada)
    • 17' Dream start for Zamora then, and great for Hughes to see three of his signings involved in the move.
    • 16' ZAMORA SCORES! THE DEBUTANT HAS BURIED A FLOWING QPR MOVE! Taarabt found Cisse with the outside of his boot, who played it for Wright-Phillips in the box. SWP held it up for Zamora, who stroked home from 10 yards. Top goal.
    • 15' Frimpong breaks up a QPR move and gets Wolves out of their own half. O'Hara and Foley exchange passes, and Wolves go backwards.
    • 14' Bassong clears for a throw under pressure from Wright-Phillips. QPR starting to build again.
    • 13' Long ball forward interests Zamora, but Hennessey gets there first.
    • 12' Fletcher gets the ball in the penalty area, but his back is to goal - he comes around, and fires a shot from the edge of the area which was well-struck but wide.
    • 11' The ball bouncing around in the midfield quite often with neither side getting the ball down quickly enough - Ferdinand hoiks the latest ball away.
    • 10' Wolves just starting to settle, though - Johnson particularly looking composed in defence. What can they do in possession, however?
    • 9' Wolves win a free-kick after O'Hara is felled trying to get on the end of Hennessey's clearance. Lobbed forward without much direction.
    • 8' Bobby Zamora becomes the 34th different player to feature for QPR this season – more than any other club. This is three short of the Premier League record for most players used by a club in a single season – 37 by Middlesbrough in 2005-06. (Infostrada)
    • 7' Will be interesting to see what Hughes can get out of Taarabt. The Moroccan's relationship with Warnock had turned sour, but there's little doubting his ability. Perhaps a chance for Taarabt to start afresh?
    • 6' Taarabt! Nice play, cutting in from the right and exchanging passes with Zamora before an attempted shot on goal floats high and wide.
    • 5' Onuoha hooks a clearance down the right hand flank after swapping passes with his goalkeeper. A little untidy, allowing Wolves some possession.
    • 4' Zamora follows up with a decent effort from distance. Advantage QPR so far.
    • 4' CISSE SHOULD SCORE! He did so well to control a ranging ball forward from Taiwo - but once he'd done so he had more than enough room to bury the finish. Ended up knocking it striaght at Hennessey.
    • 3' Big kick forward from QPR goalkeeper Kenny - Fletcher gives manful chase to put him under pressure.
    • 2' Uneventful start to this one - the Rs enjoying a touch more possession for now - hopeful ball for Zamora just out of the striker's reach.
    • 1' Away we go! QPR kick off as Mark Clattenburg, today's referee, blows the whistle.
    • 15:00 Bitterly cold day in London - no surprise to see the players in gloves. I'm looking out for someone brave enough not to wear any - and I've spotted one - Jamie O'Hara.
    • 14:55 Where are my manners? Get involved by telling me your predictions and thoughts about the game. I'm Mark Patterson, and you can find me here on Twitter
    • 14:50 QPR won 3-0 at Wolves when the teams last met in the Premier League in September. It was their biggest Premier League victory since a 3-0 win against West Ham in April 1996. Match report from that day
    • 14:45 MARK HUGHES: "I'm really looking forward to seeing them [Cisse and Zamora] play together, they've got great qualities that will complement each other. I think Bobby enjoyed his time under me at Fulham. The type of work we gave him helped him and we supported him when he was out through injury. When he came back in the second half of last season he was exceptional and was a big reason why we ended up eighth in the Premier League." QPR club page
    • 14:40 MICK MCCARTHY: "I thought, with 18 games to play, if we could get 21 points out of it from where we were, to take us to 38, that would be a good tally. That is still possible to do. Is it going to be enough? I think it will be because I think it will be a low tally that stays up." Wolves club page
    • 14:35 So the headline news is that Zamora makes his QPR debut and will join up with Cisse up front. Taarabt is back, too - and goes straight into the starting line-up. January arrivals Taiwo and Onuoha also start at the back. For Wolves, there's a new face as Sebastian Bassong comes in to strengthen the defence.

    • 14:25 One game in progress already in the Premier League - and it's seen seven goals in 64 minutes. Keep up with Arsenal v Blackburn here
    • 14:20 Crunch clash at the foot of the table today. Wolves could leapfrog QPR with victory, but the hosts surely start as favourites, with their side strengthened considerably on deadline day. Latest standings
    • 14:15 Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE text commentary from the Premier League clash between QPR and Wolves at Loftus Road.
