FT: QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Manager reaction

QPR manager Chris Ramsey told Sky Sports:  "It was a penalty and obviously a sending off. No complaints. It wasn't the right decision but these things happen. Before that I could only see us winning and scoring another but we went down to 10 men and they did a very professional job on us."

FT: QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Player reaction

Nottingham Forest debutant Chris O'Grady, who was voted man of the match, told Sky Sports:

"It could not have gone any better, I'm knackered, I gave everything, it means a lot to be here.

"It feels strange to hear the fans singing my name."

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

That victory is Forest's first in four matches, while QPR suffer their first Championship loss since the opening day of the season.

FULL-TIME

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Henri Lansbury
Empics

A big three points for Nottingham Forest, who earn their first win at Loftus Road since 1998.

YELLOW CARD

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Chris O'Grady receives a booking for a late tackle. QPR pump it forward...

INJURY TIME

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

There will be six minutes of injury time. Can QPR find a leveller?

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

"Is there a fire-drill?" chant the Nottingham Forest fans, as QPR's supporters begin to spill out of Loftus Road. Have they given up hope? There will be six minutes of added time.

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Chris O'Grady has put in one heck of a shift up front on his own for Nottingham Forest. He looks like a fine signing for Dougie Freedman.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

Ben Gladwin comes on in place of Daniel Tozser for QPR with just under five minutes left at Loftus Road.

CLOSE!

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

It's all Nottingham Forest now and Nelson Oliveira forces a decent save from Alex Smithies, with his curling strike bouncing awkwardly in front of the Rangers keeper.

GOAL (Oliveira)

QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

It's a dream debut for  Nelson Oliveira who gives Forest the lead with a low strike from the edge of the area. Alex Smithies will feel he should have kept the effort out, though.

QPR 1-1 Nottingham Forest

More indecision in the QPR defence and Chris O'Grady hooks a ball over Alex Smithies but it lacks power.

QPR 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Chris Ramsey
Empics

What an unexpected lifeline that was for Forest, plenty for QPR boss Chris Ramsey to ponder with just over 12 minutes left and his side down to 10 men.

GOAL (Lansbury pen)

QPR 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Henri Lansbury converts from the penalty spot and Nottingham Forest are level.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Alex Smithies is brought on in the QPR goal with Massimo Luongomaking way. His first job will be to face the penalty.

RED CARD (Rob Green)

QPR 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Rob Green is sent off for bringing down Chris O'Grady. Green tried to control a backpass, but failed to do so, and brought down O'Grady as the striker pressured him.

QPR down to 10 men.

PENALTY (Nottingham Forest)

QPR 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Forest do have a chance to equalise from the spot! And Rob Green may be in trouble...

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-0 Nottingham Forest

It's never a great feeling when a substitute is substituted but that's exactly what's happened to Kyle Ebecilio. He's been replaced by Nelson Oliveira as Forest look to get back in this game.

GOAL (Austin)

QPR 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Charlie Austin breaks the deadlock, but should Dorus De Vries have done better? Austin's strike from the edge of the box is low and powerful but it spills into the net under the dive of the Forest keeper.

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Chris O'Grady superbly holds the ball up for Forest, as he has done all match, and feeds Kyle Ebecilio but his curled effort is high and wide. 

CLOSE!

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

QPR defender Nedum Onuoha meets a corner on the volley but his effort from six yards is the wrong side of Dorus De Vries' post.

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Charlie Austin finally finds space in the Forest box but just as he looks to pull the trigger he loses his footing and the visitors clear the danger. 

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Rangers' James Perch has a free header at the back post but he gets it horribly wrong and it's well wide. 

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Ryan Mendes is down with a knee injury after a challenge, he's certainly putting himself about on his Forest debut.

CLOSE!

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Henri Lansbury bursts forward for Nottingham Forest and unleashes a strike from 25 yards, which deflects off Nedum Onuoha and flies just wide of Rob Green's goal.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Forest midfielder Michael Mancienne looks as if he has tweaked his hamstring and his game is over. Kyle Ebecilio is brought on in his place.

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

This is better from QPR with Massimo Luongo and Tjaronn Chery finding pockets of space. The game looks as if it's opening up.

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

At the other end Tjaronn Chery's curled strike from 20 yards is well held by Forest keeper Dorus De Vries. Better start to this half.

CLOSE!

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Forest winger Ryan Mendes wins a free-kick on the corner of the box and Henri Lansbury tests Rob Green at his near post with a low strike, but the Rangers keeper is behind the shot.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Jamie Ward is brought into proceedings by Nottingham Forest, with youngster Tyler Walker making way. The game is back under way.

HT: QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Chris O'Grady
Empics

The teams are back out on the pitch at Loftus Road. Can either of them break the deadlock?

Sa hits hat-trick in Reading rout

Friday: Reading 5-1 Ipswich Town

Orlando Sa
Empics

Reading showed no signs of rustiness last night as the Championship returned after a two-week international break.

Portuguese striker Orlando Sa scored a hat-trick as the Royals thrashed Ipswich Town 5-1 for their first home win since March.

Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy described the defeat as "sobering" as his side missed the chance to go top of the table.

HT: QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

So, not much to report from the first half in this match - the first of 10 Championship games being played today.

Perhaps we were spoiled with goals last night...

HALF-TIME

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

And it's half-time at Loftus Road.

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

Forest have a corner on the stroke of half-time but Matt Mills scuffs a side-foot from close range and it trickles towards Rob Green harmlessly. 

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

James Perch bursts forward for QPR but he wastes the chance to send in a decent ball with a poor cross and the chance is gone.

CLOSE!

QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

QPR winger Matt Phillips sends in a dangerous inswinging cross but Massimo Luongo's header at the far post lacks power and keeper Dorus De Vries is equal to it.
