9:38pm

Albion sent on Stephens for Buckley going into added time.

Final: Albion 2 QPR 0

 

9:30pm

LuaLua delighted home fans by outwitting Barton to win a corner. But it got even better.

LuaLua drive in the flag kick low and WARD deflected it just inside the far post.

9:26pm

Att: 28,019 (1,976 away)

9:26pm

Lingard was booked - possiby for persistent infringement - after a foul.

Then Morrison got on the ball.

He saw a shot deflect into the arms of Kuszczak.

Then Morrison's low shot was touched by Kuszczak just between the far post and an oncoming striker.

 

9:22pm

Albion suddenly had a spell of possession - and it brought a beautifully crafted goal. Bruno played a one-two with Andrews and drove over a pinpoint low cross for ULLOA to prod home.

Assou-Ekotto limped off before play resumed Maiga replaced Assou-Ekotto

9:13pm

Albion's first shot on target arrived in the 68th minute after some tidy passing but Forster-Caskey's curler did not test Green.

He was in more trouble a moment later, needing two attempts to hold Buckley's teasing cross.

As play swept to the other end, Hoilett shot just wide. 

9:08pm

QPR's sixth on-target attempt - against none so by Albion - saw Traore strike low from 25 yards and Kuszczak dive to his right to parry.

Still the visitors looked the more likely side to break through. Hoilett fizzed an angled shot across goal and wide, via a defelction. Ulloa rose to clear the corner.

Albion at last managed an attack but Green gathered Buckley's floated cross.

8:57pm

Traore won the first corner of the half but Kuszczak came out a long way to catch Barton's flag kick.

Neither side had yet got into any rhythm after the interval.

Bruno lost the ball and Hoilett took advantage to get into the box and fire in a shot which Kuszczak saved at his near post.

The corner was half-cleared, played back in and Onuoha saw his close range shot hit Dunk's arm before Kuszczak dived on the loose ball.

There were penalty appeals but only from the QPR fans behind that goal.

 

8:33pm

Buckley won a corner for Albion but the moment was rather lost as they played it short and Andrews' ball into the box was cleared.

Albion were finally awarded their first free-kick, other than for an offside, in the last minute of the half as Dunne shoved over Lingard on the left edge of the box.

The kick was dragged back low to Ulloa whose left-foot shot on the half-turn was horribly high and wide.

Half: Albion 0 QPR 0

 

8:28pm

Bruno had been doing a decent job on the tricky Hoilett. But he brought him down near the corner flag and earned a brief talking-to from Madley.

Barton drilled the resulting free-kick straight at Andrews.

As pressure contineud, QPR won two corners, the second of which was just too high for Hill as he charged into the goalmouth.

But Albion dug in and survived.

8:17pm

Albion were working hard to harry Rangers in possession.

But that played into the hands of the talented Morrison, who darted away from a couple of opponents, drifted inside and let fly with a 25-yard shot which Kuszczak pushed over as it moved in the breeze.

8:13pm

Lingard, playing with freedom, popped up on the right and worked a one-two with Bruno before sliding in a dangerous low cross with was cut out.

QPR immediately countered and Keane had a run in the Albion box but Bruno nicked the ball off him.

8:10pm

Hoilett tied his luck from 30 yards and his shot bounced and swerved in front of Kuszczak, who could only parry before diving on the rebound as it threatened to get away from him.

The visitors were looking a classy outfit in possession.

Dunk got across to block a Hoilett cross at the cost of a corner which was taken by Barton and headed away by Ulloa.

8:05pm

Traore produced the first on-target shot of the night but his low effort from outside the box was easy for Kuszczak to gather.

Albion then had a real chance as ref Madley played a shrewd advanatge when Buckley was tripped.

Ulloa seized on the loose ball and made ground in the inside-right channel before flashing a shot past the near post.

7:59pm

Lingard's shot was well wide but it gave home fans encouragment.

And it was not as wayward as Keane's woeful 25-yarder a minute later.

7:58pm

Unusually Albion had very little early possession.

When they got the ball, though, they got Ward charging forward and Ulloa won a corner.

That was cleared but Albion attacked again and Lingard sent a cross shot wide of the far post after Bruno had slid the ball back inside.

 

7:54pm

Albion put together their first move, heavily involving Ince, but it was all too intricate just outside the box and QPR cleared.

7:52pm

QPR put the first move together and Bruno had to nick the ball away from Hoilett on the edge of the box.

Dunk headed away the first cross of the night.

Then neat passing in the middle gave Jenas room to shoot but his curler went comfortably wide.

7:47pm

Albion going North to South in this first half.

Conditions: Cold, clear, windy.

7:44pm

It's another big game for Albion - and a tough one too against QPR.

Harry Redknapp's men bounced back after a recent blip by winning at Birmingham on Saturday - and quite comfortably too by the look of it.

Meanwhile Albion have taken just one point from two recent home games against play-off contenders.

The teams are out and Sussex By The Sea is belting out around the Amex.

We are almost ready to go.

Be fair though, the QPR side is stacked full of ex-Prem players. With a decent manager/coach they'd have been walking the league.

Arnie this match is far from over and accepting that QPR appear to have had the best of the first 45, (going by text reports) I expect Oscar to tweak things a little. I would not be at all surprised to see some extra pace injected by the introduction of Kaz around the 60 minute mark, maybe at the restart.

QPR are on their game and we need to unsettle them a bit.

yeah but he speaks as tho he is at the match and reporting on what he is seeing, and that is not the case. He is not telling it as it is, he is telling it as he thinks it is from listening to the radio, he knows no more than you know Mickey, but he will claim to be at the match, just as he did when he told us that he was walking out of the Millwall ground in disgust.

If any still think Kaz is a starter rather than a change up super sub, perhaps tonight you will rethink it. Arry, like many others, will claim that they deserved something from the game, he will tell how they were in control and that the result does not reflect their overall performance.
Fact is they had over 20 shots, most from distance and only got 7 on target, whilst that might sound good, it aint hard to shoot from distance, we have been doing it all year, apart from tonight that is.
