Bees end 50 years of hurt

FT: Brentford 1-0 QPR

So thanks for joining us, on a night that Brentford fans have waited for since 1965.

QPR have now lost three of their last six games and, given their high expectations, you wonder how safe Chris Ramsey is in his job unless they can find some form quickly.

Ramsey's side drop to 11th, while Brentford move above their local rivals into 10th place in the Championship table. You can re-live tonight's action in Gary Smee's fine match report here.

Do join us again tomorrow when Birmingham City host Wolves in a lunchtime Midlands derby. Until then, good night and we wish you and your team all the best this weekend.

FT: Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford defender Jake Bidwell tells Sky Sports:

"We're on a good run at the minute but we've just got to keep this going as long as we can.

"The last few games have really shown what we're about. We've got to keep our feet on the ground and take it one game at a time."

FT: Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford defender Jake Bidwell tells Sky Sports the Bees players would love Lee Carsley to take the job permanently:

"We changed the manager. You can see the place is buzzing tonight. Results speak for themselves.

"All the lads love him. I think the lads would love him to take it on but at the end of the day he'll do what's right for him.

"If he wants to take it, I'm sure it's there for him. But if not, you've got to respect that."

Reaction

FT: Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford goal scorer Marco Djuricin tells Sky Sports:

"It was a very tough game for us. We are very happy.

"Today I'm the lucky one to score a goal. I'm very happy."

FULL-TIME

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Three clean sheets in a row. Four wins in a row. And a first derby victory over QPR for 50 years!

Brentford celebrate a memorable night for the Bees at Griffin Park.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford win a free-kick in their own half and they will take their time with this. QPR look beaten.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford substitute Philipp Hofmann has a go from range but his left-footed shot trickles harmlessly wide. The hosts won't mind though, provided they can see out the closing stages.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

The hosts are keeping possession well. If they keep this up for four more minutes, QPR aren't going to have a sniff.

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

QPR's Matt Phillips scampers down the right but can't get a cross in and Brentford win a goal kick.

Griffin Park then rises to salute Marco Djuricin - whose goal looks to be the match winner - as he is replaced by Philipp Hofmann.

Five minutes of added time will be played.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

QPR are running out of time. Charlie Austin has barely touched the ball since coming on. Have they left it too late?

YELLOW CARD

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford are doing a good job of helping the time pass by and keeping the clock ticking. QPR are yet to really conjure up a clear-cut chance since around the 50th minute.

Goal scorer Marco Djuricin is booked for the hosts for a block on Robert Green.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

If things stay like this it will be a fourth straight win for Brentford and Lee Carsley.

And just how much pressure would defeat heap onto QPR boss Chris Ramsey, given the high expectations Rangers have this season?

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

The lively Alan McCormack is replaced by Lasse Vibe for the hosts.

YELLOW CARD (Phillips)

Brentford 1-0 QPR

QPR winger Matt Phillips is booked for a late tackle from behind on Toumani Diagouraga.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford have not beaten QPR since 21 August 1965.

They are now just 10 minutes away from a first win over their local rivals in 50 years.

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Konstantin Kerschbaumer comes on for Brentford's star performer, Alan Judge - who gets a warm reception from the home fans as he goes off. He has been terrific.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

QPR are probing - but not really creating many opportunities. Can they claw their way back onto level terms?

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

It looks like Clint Hill turned very awkwardly on his knee there and that would explain how much difficulty he is having in hobbling off the field. Hopefully for him it isn't as serious as it looks.

James Perch comes on to replace Hill and that is QPR's last available substitution.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford look to extend their lead but Jake Bidwell's header at the far post goes a yard or so over the crossbar.

Now QPR defender Clint Hill receives treatment on the field for what looks like a painful injury.

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Junior Hoilett is brought on for Massimo Luongo in QPR's second change.

That implies an attacking 4-4-2 now for the visitors, with Charlie Austin up top alongside Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Matt Phillips and Hoilett on the wings.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

Brentford's David Button has to come out very quickly to claim a through ball before the onrushing Charlie Austin can pounce.

The goalkeeper gets there first but almost slides out of the penalty area. The QPR fans appeal for handball outside the area but Button managed to stay just inside the box.

SUBSTITUTION

Brentford 1-0 QPR

QPR make their first change and it is the one we've been expecting. Their top scorer Charlie Austin comes on for Tjaronn Chery.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

That opening goal means we have one stat that definitely isn't going to change tonight - Brentford and QPR rarely play out goalless draws and their 63rd meeting won't be providing one.

Brentford 1-0 QPR

A flare has gone off somewhere in the home stands and the red smoke is wafting around the ground a bit, but not enough to halt the play. The home fans are rather excited, I'd say.

GOAL (Djuricin)

Brentford 1-0 QPR

The deadlock is broken and the hosts are jubilant. Marco Djuricin gets in front of his marker inside the six-yard box to poke home at the near post from a dangerous low cross from Alan Judge. That's a really good striker's goal and the home crowd absolutely love it.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

QPR defender Grant Hall gets a bit of a talking to from the referee after challenging with a foot off the ground, and Brentford have a free-kick inside the QPR half. It comes to nothing though.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

QPR's Matt Phillips has a glorious chance to head in from six yards out but he is denied by David Button. That was a good opportunity, but a good save.

CLOSE!

Brentford 0-0 QPR

Brentford almost take the lead straight after half-time but Marco Djuricin is denied from close range by a good Robert Green save.

On the rebound, the ball falls to John Swift but his difficult half-volley flies narrowly over the bar.

KICK-OFF

Brentford 0-0 QPR

Brentford get the second half started at Griffin Park.

HT: Brentford 0-0 QPR

The half-time stats are slightly misleading when you look at the shots on target.

QPR have technically only had one strike on goal, but of course Massimo Luongo has hit the woodwork twice for Chris Ramsey's side.

Not the goals we were expecting and hoping for, but there are still another 45 minutes for things to change.

Who do you see winning this game then on the evidence of the first 45 minutes?

Can QPR overcome Brentford - and the woodwork - in the second half?

Or will the hosts delight Griffin Park with a derby-night victory?

HALF-TIME

Brentford 0-0 QPR

The whistle goes and yes, it is 0-0, but I did mean to say entertaining just then. After a slow start the last 15 minutes have been nothing short of frantic.

QPR have hit the post twice and at the other end, Robert Green has been rather busy in his goal.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

One minute of added time has been indicated at the end of this entertaining half.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Brentford 0-0 QPR

Massimo Luongo hits the woodwork again! This time the QPR midfielder strikes the bottom of the far post with a low effort, after cutting inside in the area.

Seconds before that, Robert Green did well to save a pacey Alan Judge strike from outside the area at the other end.

But QPR - and especially Luongo - will consider themselves very unlucky not to be ahead.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

QPR have found their feet since the half-hour mark and look dangerous all of a sudden. Matt Phillips is creating space for himself on the wings and Karl Henry is getting stuck in in the middle. Yet Brentford still look threatening whenever they go forward too.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Brentford 0-0 QPR

It is end-to-end all of a sudden! QPR strike the upright, as Massimo Luongo flicks Matt Phillips' left-wing cross towards goal. I think the keeper was beaten.

Moments earlier, only a fine bit of defending from Rangers' defender Grant Hall prevented Brentford having a clear shot on goal.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

At the other end, QPR keeper Robert Green needs two attempts to hold onto a curling shot from John Swift. That strike had a bit of sting in it. Decent effort.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

This is better from Rangers. Tjaronn Chery moves well to create himself a few yards of space and tries to chip the goalkeeper from the edge of the area, but misses the target.

Brentford 0-0 QPR

QPR have a crack for the first time tonight. Matt Phillips hits one from long range and it takes a small deflection but David Button makes a straightforward save.
