    • 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).
    • 90+4' Golden chance for Bosingwa to rescue the point, but he lifts the ball over the bar from six yards. There goes the final whistle. A 3-2 win for West Brom.
    • 90+3' A yellow card for Mulumbu for failing to give the ball. QPR trying to find the late leveller.
    • 90+1' GOAL! Lovely finish by Granero from the edge of the box. Brilliant turn and finish. His first goal for QPR. West Brom lead 3-2. Two minutes left on the clock.
    • 89' We are into four minutes of time added on.
    • 88' Youssouf Mulumbu scored his first Premier League goal in 2012, and first since November 2011 against Tottenham.
    • 87' A smart piece of defending by Nelsen to take the ball off the toes of Lukaku as he tried to race clear of his markers.
    • 86' West Brom going to join Everton in joint third at the top of the Premier League.
    • 85' A booking for Mackie after he flew through Yacob with a pretty wretched sliding challenge.
    • 84' Jara Reyes with the cutback to provide Mulumbu with that third goal. Superb piece of football.
    • 83' That was the first time that any questions have been asked of QPR in this second period. And they didn't really have the answers.
    • 82' GOAL! Mulumbu slides the ball into the net from eight yards out. Brilliant passing movement from the home side. That will be that. A 3-1 lead now.
    • 81' Nelsen comes across to knock the ball away from Lukaku, who tried to bound in on goal.
    • 80' Hoilett gives the ball away straight to Lukaku, but isn't punished for his wastefulness.
    • 79' West Brom's best passage of play in the second half coming with just 10 minutes or so left on the clock.
    • 78' Offside flag goes up against Lukaku as he swivels to send a shot spinning wide of goal.
    • 77' Morrison thumps a shot at goal from 30 yards out. Inches wide. So close to a third goal for West Brom.
    • 76' 23,987 watching the action this afternoon. Has not been the best of second halfs.
    • 75' Taarabt has been a constant menace to West Brom. McAuley and Zamora collide in the home box. Free-kick to West Brom.
    • 74' Nelsen rises to head clear the free-kick from Morrison. Solid defending by the big Kiwi.
    • 73' West Brom toiling to find the space that made themselves so dominant in the first half. Morrison brought down by Granero.
    • 72' This game proving to be a real dogfight for supremacy. QPR have been the better side in the second period. Traore picks out Taarabt before Popov looks to break seconds later.
    • 71' Hoilett replaces M'Bia for the visiting side. West Brom continue to hold this 2-1 lead.
    • 70' As it stands, West Brom are currently third in the table. This would be the first time the club have been in the top three in the table in October or later in a top flight season since October 23, 1982.
    • 69' We are into the final 20 minutes of this contest with the whole business well and truly in the balance as QPR look to push from the back.
    • 68' Mark Hughes calling for a few fresh faces to end their warm-up. Going to be changes made here.
    • 67' Granero slips a shot over the bar. Lovely little lay-off by Taarabt to play provider there.
    • 66' Offside flag goes up against Lukaku as he set off too soon.
    • 65' Park feeds Taarabt with a dangerous ball, but the touch of the forward lets him down. West Brom havve hardly been up in the park in the second period.
    • 64' QPR patient again in the build-up before Popov lifts the ball straight into the path of Olsson. Poor delivery really.
    • 63' Zamora drags a pass straight out of play. Disappointing distribution from him.
    • 62' Markus Rosenberg replaces the dangerous Odemwingie. West Brom have now used their three substitutes.
    • 61' Long departs for West Brom to be replaced by Romelu Lukaku.
    • 60' Nelsen with a typically stout challenge to half a shot at the visiting goal. Game beginning to open up now. All to play for. Changes being made.
    • 59' QPR certainly breaking up the home side's play here. Looks like Steve Clarke has seen enough of this. Changes afoot.
    • 58' Wright-Phillips has been brought off with Jamie Mackie introduced for the visiting team.
    • 57' QPR have never come from two goals down to pick up a single point away from home in their Premier League history - that sequence could end today.
    • 56' Nelsen joining the attack, but can't get on the end of a cross before M'Bia almost connects with Granero's corner. Much, much better from the visitors in this half.
    • 55' All a bit scrappy at the moment with misplaced pass. The home fans getting a bit agitated in that stands.
    • 54' Taarabt’s goal today was his first Premier League goal away from home and first against a team not from London.
    • 53' QPR certainly seeing a bit more life in their movements. QPR on the ball at the halfway life. Taarabt to the fore.
    • 52' Wright-Phillips studying his options, but can only screw the shot into the box from the pass by Taarabt. Poor stuff really.
    • 51' Long almost on the end of a cross before Odemwingie wheels over a cross for Nelsen to nod clear.
    • 50' Nelsen has to be sharp to come across and nudge the ball away from Odemwingie.
    • 49' Both teams back into the passing rythmn that characterised their early play in the match.
    • 48' Clint Hill makes way for Traore as Bosingwa fires a shot over the bar from distance. Well over the bar.
    • 47' Changes for both teams at the break: Tamas departs to be replaced by Jara for the home side.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period.
    • 45+2' A 2-1 lead at the break for West Brom as the whistle sounds. All very frantic, but the West Brom supporteres will be pleased with their side.
    • 44' We are into two minutes of time added on as Popov smashes the ball a couple of yards over.
    • 43' Park has picked up a yellow card for late challenge on Gera. A really poorly timed challenge.
    • 42' QPR once again ripped to shreds at the back. Not sure what is going on in that rearguard.
    • 41' Gera darts onto the ball from Odemwingie, but Cesar is off his line to make a brilliant stop. Almost a 3-1 lead.
    • 40' Taarabt thinks about a shot, but ends up falling in the home box. Faint appeals for a penalty, but didn't look much in that.
    • 39' More uncompromising defending by Olsson to halt the run of Park. Had to stay with the South Korean midfielder and does so well.
    • 38' Mulumbu swipes the ball wide from Long's lay-off. Effort wide of goal. We remain at 2-1 in favour of West Brom.
    • 37' Decent run and shot by Long, but the red shirts scramble back to make the block.
    • 36' Ferdinand goes through the ball of Long. Free-kick to West Brom 35 yards from goal, but QPR deal with the danger.
    • 35' Adel Taarabt has scored his second goal in consecutive Premier League matches. It was the first home goal conceded by West Brom this season.
    • 34' Taarabt is penalised for offside on the edge of the West Brom box, and suddenly the home side are content to hear that whistle.
    • 33' West Brom manager Steve Clarke asking Granero about something or other for some reason.
    • 32' GOAL! Taarabt scores for QPR. Lovely pass from Granero to find his team-mate who chests the ball before smashing home the volley. Class finish. West Brom 2-1 ahead now.
    • 31' Looks like Hill is going to need a spot of treatment here for the visiting side. Blood coming out of his head.
    • 30' West Brom in complete control of this match. Mulumbu's shot is blocked. Hill covering up seconds later to help get the ball back to Cesar.
    • 29' Long picks the pocket of Bosingwa in the visiting box. But the ball bounces kindly for Cesar to collect.
    • 28' Park with a horrid tackle on Gera, but he is back on his feet after a moment of concern.
    • 27' West Brom kept eight PL clean sheets at The Hawthorns in 2012. The equal most for any home side in the division this year, level with Manchester United at Old Trafford. This is also the club’s most ever in a single year in the division.
    • 26' Decent piece of defending by Olsson to stop the ball at source from Taarabt's intended pass. Ball back in the hands of Foster.
    • 25' Taarabt fortunate to avoid a yellow card after snatching the ball out of the air for no apparent reason.
    • 24' M'Bia has completely lost his head here. Has raced into a couple of awful tackles on Mulumbu.
    • 23' Tamas picks up a booking for a late challenge on Taarabt.
    • 22' A 2-0 lead for West Brom. Hughes can only look on in some state of disbelief. Not yet heard the cries of 'you're getting sacked in the morning' but can't be far away.
    • 21' GOAL! Gera slips the ball into the corner of the net after Ferdinand had made a mess of trying to clear the cross from Morrison. This game going from bad to worse for QPR.
    • 20' Free-kick comes to nothing as the ball ends up back with Cesar. Can QPR get themselves up the other end of the park? Have done nothing so far.
    • 19' West Brom keeping the ball with some relish before Mulumbu is taken out late by Clint Hill. Free-kick 30 yards out.
    • 18' Gera goes for goal from distance. Ball deflects off Bosingwa before ending up safely in the paws of Cesar.
    • 17' QPR seeing plenty of this ball. Looking tidy enough, but their passing again breaks down as Nelson clatters Long.
    • 16' QPR have failed to win in their last five league matches at West Brom, since a 1-0 victory in Division One (the second tier of the football league) in October 1999. Stuart Wardley scored the only goal of the game for QPR.
    • 15' Truly awful defending by QPR, who are slack in key areas. This afternoon not going according to plan for the visiting side.
    • 14' West Brom should be 2-0 clear! Long lifts a shot over from five yards out. Lovely pass from Odemwingie to send Morrison sprinting clear. And the cross was so good from Morrison.
    • 13' Granero decides to try his luck, but ends up clipping the free-kick wide off the top of the wall and wide.
    • 12' Tamas brings down Taarabt and that will be a free-kick to the visiting side 22 yards from goal.
    • 11' Hughes with his arms folded at the side of the pitch. He needs this like a hole in the head. More passing from his side, but they are not real going anywhere with it.
    • 10' Morrisson gets the header out of the box before Bosingwa hammers a volley miles over the bar. Pretty woeful finish.
    • 9' A real test of QPR's mettle here. Already propping up the division. Wright-Phillips felled by Popov. Free-kick out wide.
    • 8' Last season, West Brom won 1-0 at The Hawthorns and the teams drew 1-1 at Loftus Road. The home side is unbeaten in the last four league matches between the teams since West Brom’s 2-0 away victory in May 2008.
    • 7' Yacob takes out M'Bia with a late challenge. QPR on the ball in their own half here. Decent position for Granero before he has his pocket picked by Odemwingie.
    • 6' So simple. The delivery from Long was so, so good. Ferdinand nowhere to be seen. First real attacking move of the match, and the home side are on their way here.
    • 5' GOAL! Morrison meets a delightful cross from Long's cross to power a header into the net from 12 yards out. Brilliant goal. Superb move.
    • 4' Peter Odemwingie returning from suspension for West Brom. He is the club’s all-time top Premier League scorer with 26 goals – 12 more than any other player.
    • 3' Cesar collecting the ball in the QPR goal. The visitors in their red shirts knocking it around again at the back. In no hurry to go anywhere with it.
    • 2' Odemwingie with a decent ball into the middle, but QPR deal with the danger to scramble it clear. QPR trying to get a few passes put together at the back.
    • 1' We are off and running. QPR get the action started in this match.
    • 14.55 Glorious day for football at The Hawthorns. Pitch like a bowling green. West Brom and QPR in the tunnel. Almost ready to go in this one.
    • 14.50 With 11 points from six matches West Brom already have their most points at this stage of a Premier League season. It is their most in a top flight season since 1978-79 when they went on to finish in third place in the table.

    • 14.40 West Brom manager Steve Clarke and his opposite number today, Mark Hughes, were team-mates at Chelsea and won three trophies together at the club – the 1997 FA Cup (in which they both started the final), the 1998 League Cup, and the 1998 Cup Winners’ Cup.
    • 14.35 Odds for this match if you fancy a flutter today: West Brom 5/6 QPR 10/3 Draw 13/5
    • 14.30 QPR manager Mark Hughes travels to West Brom with several of his defenders still struggling for fitness. Jose Bosingwa and Anton Ferdinand recover from hamstring problems to start, but Armand Traore (leg) has not taken part in full training this week. Full-back Fabio (hamstring) is definitely out as is Samba Diakite, who serves a one-match ban for his sending off at West Ham on Monday, with striker Andy Johnson (knee) a long-term absentee.
    • 14.25 West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has completed a three game ban for his sending-off at Fulham and is named in the starting line-up. But right-back Billy Jones and skipper and midfielder Chris Brunt have joined the injury list and are ruled out with knee and hamstring setbacks suffered during the 1-1 draw at Aston Villa. Defender Steven Reid (hamstring) and number two goalkeeper Boaz Myhill (hand) are also sidelined while winger Jerome Thomas must wait to return from a series of injury niggles.
