QPR return to Loftus Road looking to extend their unbeaten home run in the league to five games.

Today's opponents are Burton Albion, who come into the game with a new-found confidence after picking up four points from two difficult Championship games against Norwich City and Fulham.

The Brewers may well come into this game with a mild hangover, having enjoyed a glamour tie away at Manchester United on Wednesday night, a game which they lost 4-1.

The Hoops will be hoping to take advantage of the much-needed rest midweek, meaning the likes of Josh Scowen, Conor Washington and long-term absentee Jordan Cousins come back into contention.

It's set to be a real test for Ian Holloway's side, as they look to back-up impressive displays against a number of the league's big guns, with a performance and victory to match.

Full-time: QPR 0 Burton Albion 0

The Hoops play out a stalemate with the Brewers.

Thanks for your support, keep an eye out for all the reaction as we get it.

Added time

Four minutes for QPR to get a winner; can they do it?

A moment of worry...

A moment of frustration and worry, as QPR’s attack is stopped by the referee after a collision between Pawel Wszolek and Kyle McFadzean.

Boos echo round Loftus Road as the referee awards a drop ball to the visitors.

Final sub

Idrissa Sylla replaces Jamie Mackie.

I’d expect QPR to go route-one now.

Does this have 0-0 written all over it?

Quite possibly.

Neither side is really getting on the ball to make anything happen, something which Ian Holloway won’t be happy about.

It’s going to take one moment of quality, or a scrappy goal to make the difference here.

But will it be QPR that get it?

Chance QPR

Alex Baptiste nearly breaks the deadlock with a left-footed volley from 20 yards which deflects out for a corner.

Luke Freeman

Luke Freeman is looking to get on the ball here.

He picks it up in his own half and charges forward, winning a free-kick in the process.

We haven’t seen an awful lot of this today, but Freeman is one man who certainly has the ability to be a match-winner today.

Bright Osayi-Samuel

The youngster has made a real impact since coming on.

He’s shown a willingness to get stuck and get n the ball, showing off some tricks and a real willingness to charge at goal.

All early signs, but he could be key in this second half.

Attendance:

12,500 (315 Burton)

Double substitution

Yeni Ngbakoto and Darnell Furlong are replaced by Matt Smith and debutant Bright Osayi-Samuel

Second half under way!

Can QPR take all three points?

Half time - QPR 0 Burton Albion 0

It’s level-pegging at Loftus Road.

Half-time approaching...

It hasn’t been the best first half, but this game is certainly there for the taking.

The Hoops haven’t reached anywhere near top gear, and if they can just find a way to get on the ball more in the final third they could easily get a couple in the second half.

Chance QPR

Great play by Pawel Wszolek on the right as he cuts inside before crossing the ball into the box. Jamie Mackie picks it up but side-foots his effort over the bar.

A change of system

The Hoops have changes into a 4-2-3-1 formation in an attempt to get on the ball higher up the field.

It seems to make sense, with Ngbakoto not really looking comfortable in a deep-lying position.

Little rhythm to this game

It’s been a strange game so far.

There’s been very little in terms of pattern to the game, with large spells being pretty scrappy.

Ian holloway won’t be too happy with how it’s gone so far, and will be hoping his team can get on the ball a little more.

Another chance for QPR

A ball in from the left finds Washington who scuffs his header, but it hits Jamie Allen and forces Stephen Bywater into a quick save.

QPR creating chances despite things not quite clicking for them.

A chance wasted for QPR

A ball forward found the Hoops two vs one with Washington and Freeman on the attack. Washington waited too long to play the ball and results in a corner. A real chance wasted by the Hoops.

QPR chance

That’s better from QPR.

A break led by Conor Washington leads to the ball going out to Luke Freeman on the right flank. He cut inside and had his effort tipped wide.

Chance Burton

A ball down the left finds Sean Scannell who cuts inside and fires past Alex Smithies only to hit the post.

The Hoops need to liven up as the visitors are certainly having the better of this.

A spell of Burton pressure

A spell of pressure for the visitors.

A Burton attack is halted by Josh Scowen who dispossesses Marvin Sordell with ease, before a misplaced Jack Robinson pass puts the Hoops under pressure.

Yeni Ngbakoto

Ngbakoto is playing in a slightly deeper role as a direct replacement for Massimo Luongo.

It’ll be interesting to see if he has the discipline to do a job for the team in that role.

Kick off: QPR vs Burton Albion

We’re underway here at Loftus Road!

A must-win game?

It may not be a glamorous fixture, but it’s certainly going to be steeped in importance.

It’s all well and good putting in positive displays against the league’s big guns, but if it can’t be followed up against the likes of Burton then life is going to be much harder than it needs to be.

One thing is for certain, we’re going to see exactly where this QPR team are this afternoon, and fingers crossed they’ll showcase the improvement we hope they’ve made since the end of last season.

Matt Smith's frustration continues as he is dropped to the bench...

International support out in force!

A curve-ball from Ollie?

It’s a huge boost to have Joel Lynch and Steven Caulker back on the bench.

They may not be fit enough to start, but their inclusion will be massive for morale.

Elsewhere Yeni Ngbakoto will be hoping to show what he can do after being somewhat frozen out so far this term.

Ryan Manning and Matt Smith can count themselves unfortunate to miss out after their displays against Middlesbrough, while David Wheeler misses out on the squad altogether.
