    • 27' The offside flag goes up agaisnt Cisse who chases Diakite's long ball out of defence. It was the correct call from the linesman.

    • 25' STAT: QPR have scored just five goals in their last seven Premier League matches at Loftus Road.
    • 23' QPR just couldn't clear their lines and they've paid the ultimate price. Saints with a deserved lead.
    • 22' GOAL! QPR 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON. Puncheon's shot is blocked on the line by Bosingwa but Lambert is there is follow up and put Saints ahead from close range!

    • 19' Two poor crosses into the box from Jose Bosingwa and Diakite. There are a lot of mistakes out there at the moment.

    • 9' QPR win the first corner of the game.
    • 8' Jason Puncheon curls in a cross aimed at Lallana and it strikes the QPR post with Cesar scrambling across his goal!
    • 6' A glorious exchange between Ramirez and Lallana results in the latter volleying just over from the edge of the area!
    • 5' QPR have hardly had the ball out of theior own half in these early stages. It's been a tentative start from them.
    • 4' Gaston Ramirez overhits a pass and the ball rolls through to Julio Cesar.
    • 3' It's been a scrappy start at Loftus Road. Southampton have setttled the better though.

    • 1' We are off and underway at Loftus Road!
    • 14:57 If you want to discuss the game on Twitter, I'll try and be as active as I can. @SCoggin_journo
    • 14:55 Nigel Adkins on the prospect of the losing manager being sacked: “I'm pretty sure come Monday that both managers will still be in situ. I think there are two good managers and two good football clubs. The media will build it up that way because they have just highlighted two teams at the wrong end of the division."
    • 14:50 Mark Hughes: "Our hope was to finish in the top half and I still think that is a possibility. Obviously we need to start winning quickly and that is our intention at the weekend, but we feel we have the capacity, and we feel teams above us will have periods when they will struggle, like we have at the beginning. We feel now with injuries clearing that we are through our period and we hope to prove that at the weekend and kick on.”
    • 14:45 QPR’s Twitter-mad owner Tony Fernandes is a patient man and claims Hughes has his full backing, but all at Loftus Road are aware that a win must come soon if the west London club are not to get cut adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.
    • 14:40 Mark Hughes’ QPR have yet to secure a win, despite improved performances of late. Some critics have pointed to a high turnover of players, contributing to a lack of continuity, as a chief reason why they are still winless in mid-November.
    • 14:35 These two newly promoted teams have won just one match between them all season. While Nigel Adkins’ Saints have shipped goals this season, they at least boast one victory – against Aston Villa in September.
    • 14:30 Southampton, who are missing Frazer Richardson and Richard Chaplow, have resisted the temptation to make changes after impressing for long spells in last weekend's 1-1 draw at home to Swansea.
    • 14:25 The two sides have named unchanged line-ups for this afternoon’s fixture which has been dubbed ‘El Sackico’ because of the precarious position of both managers. Djibril Cisse will lead the attack for Queens Park Rangers, with Junior Hoilett and Adel Taarabt providing the support.
