  1. Goodbye

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Just the one match in the Premier League. But what a belter. A real ding-dong at Loftus Road but Tottenham are right in the hunt for a Champions League spot thanks to Harry Kane. QPR, however, are on the ropes. Thanks for your company.

  2. Manager reaction

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Mauricio Pochettino on his side's recent form: "The reaction after going out of Europe has been fantastic. It was difficult after the defeat against Fiorentina. I think the response has been fantastic from the squad in the big games that have followed. We have to go away and now train hard to focus on our next match against Manchester United."

  3. Manger reaction

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Mauricio Pochettino on the form of striker Harry Kane: "It's difficult to say anything else about Harry, his performance today shows his strength to keep working. It's Roy Hodgson's decision if he plays for England or not, but all of us here in the Tottenham family are happy with him."

  4. Manager reaction

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to Match of the Day: "I'm very proud of our performance, we showed big character against a difficult opponent and on a difficult stage. We showed today the way that we play and the character we have. The way QPR play is long ball and on the edge of the box, they have strength in the air through Bobby Zamora and Charlie Austin, but we handled it."

    He's done it again...away from the Lane...QPR struck by two hits from the Kane.

  6. Player reaction

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    More from Harry Kane: It's a massive win, we always seem to be winning 2-1. We looked in control, but we looked in control the other night and Hugo Lloris had to make a big save. So we have to improve in killing teams off.

    "I'm loving my football, being out there with my team-mates and my mates. I feel good and confident, it's important for a striker to have that. The second goal was a nice composed finish.

    "There are a lot of top teams up there (competing for the top four) and whoever can put a run together will be right up there. That's what we are hoping to do and it's a big game at Old Trafford next week."

    Tottenham players leave the pitch. Huge win for them. Now three points off fourth place, and they play fourth- placed Manchester United next. QPR fans, however, don't share their joy...

    Tom Castle: Hard to pinpoint what separates Harry Kane but he's a special player.

    Charles Kahanji: If I were Louis van Gaal, I wouldn't waste huge sum on an ageing Falcao. I'd attempt to lure young Harry Kane or Charlie Austin.

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Harry Kane

    Tottenham's two-goal striker Harry Kane: "We've had a disappointing couple of weeks so we had to build momentum and get up the league. Which we have done with two good results. Andros put in a great ball in great area and that's it, back of the net. The second one I was happy to round the keeper and put it in the back of the net."

    On a possible England call up: "I just need to keep doing what I'm doing. There are still a few more games until the international break so I just need to do the best I can for Spurs."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "QPR played well for periods. They got a goal out of nothing in the second half and had a go for five minutes, but other than that Tottenham were the better side.

    "Having said that, Spurs were lucky to be winning at half-time and a case could be made that QPR could have got something out of this game.

    "One or two people were saying Spurs' season could come to a dramatic end but they have rectified that and are three points off the Champions League places."

  14. Post update

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    QPR battled and were on top for periods. But once again their hard work has resulted in nothing. They remain in the bottom three, three points from safety, with 10 games remaining. It's not looking good.

  15. FULL-TIME

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    Harry Kane wins it for Tottenham. Two more goals for the prolific 21-year-old. And all in front of Roy Hodgson. The England boss is preparing to name his squad for the Euro 2016 qualifier with Lithuania. Surely Kane has to be in it, doesn't he?

  25. TEN MINUTES REMAINING

    On Sandro's goal: "Well we needed that because the game was dying a death. Now we have got a game on our hands. Have QPR got the belief to follow this through? Have they got the effort to dig right down? They would certainly take a 2-2 draw."

  27. Post update

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham

    This match just keeps giving. Huge drama and QPR want a penalty. It's a decent shout as Steven Caulker's header appears to strike the hand of Nabil Bentaleb. Nothing given.

  29. GOAL

    QPR 1-2 Tottenham - Sandro

    No celebration from Sandro as he scores against his former club to give QPR a lifeline. It's a terrific low finish from just inside the area. Standby for a grandstand finish.

    Sandro scores
  30. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Tottenham

    QPR are deflated. Harry Kane destroyed Chelsea and Arsenal earlier this season. He's now bagged himself another winning brace against London opposition.

  31. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Tottenham

    Steve Claridge at Loftus Road

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "I think Kane knows that he is on-side and Chadli, who is alongside whim, isn't sure if he was on-side. So Kane tells him to go away before going around the keeper and scoring. In the second half, Tottenham have been by far the better side."

  32. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Tottenham

    Phil Neville

    BBC Match of the Day

    "Not only should Harry Kane be in the next England squad, he should be starting as well."

  33. GOAL

    QPR 0-2 Tottenham - Harry Kane

    Brilliant by Harry Kane. Roy Hodgson watches from the VIP seats as the Spurs striker rounds Rob Green before rolling the ball into the net to surely give Spurs the three points. Shocking defending though from QPR, whose offside trap is easily breached.

    Kane scores second goal
  34. SUBSTITUTION

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    First change of the match, And it's from Spurs. Mousa Dembele is on for Andros Townsend. Can Spurs hang on to this slender lead?

  35. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    This is too close to call. Spurs have had the best chances but QPR are still battling. This is set up for a terrific finish.

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "If Tottenham are not to win this game - and at 1-0 it is a slender lead - they will be kicking themselves. They have had a number of chances. Certainly they were a bit lucky to be ahead at half-time but they should now be clear in this game and they are not."

  37. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    You can't take your eyes off this. Christian Eriksen has a shot hacked off the line after Kyle Walker's shot is blocked. Temperatures are boiling over on the pitch. Nabil Bentaleb is booked for a late challenge on Karl Henry. This is bubbling nicely.

    "Harry Kane at one end one minute and then Hugo Lloris at the other the next. Who is the more important to the team? Great save as he isn't beaten at his near post."

  39. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    End to end, helter-skelter stuff now. Brilliant by Bobby Zamora as he forces Hugo Lloris into a terrific block with a thumping shot after shrugging off two players. QPR are not finished.

  40. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    Another lovely fluent move by Spurs as they flood forward. Ryan Mason is at the heart of it and Steven Caulker is forced to concede another corner. The visitors are basking in the sunshine. But they need another goal to make this game safe.

  41. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    QPR have their first corner. It's only taken 52 minutes.

  42. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    Spurs are going for the kill. More dithering in the QPR defence and Harry Kane is in like a flash. But there's relief for the hosts as an offside flag brings the move to an end before Kane can stick the ball in the net.

  43. Post update

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    Steve Claridge at Loftus Road

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "What a wonderful strike. I'm happy to let Christian Eriksen shoot there - from 20-25 yards out. He cuts across the ball and Tottenham are unlucky. That would have been really tough on QPR to be 2-0 down and it would have put this game to bed. But this time they get a little bit of luck."

  44. HITS THE WOODWORK

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    How did that stay out? World-class from Christian Eriksen as he wraps his right foot around the ball and thumps a QPR post. The ball rebounds to Harry Kane. Surely 2-0. No! Kane slices his attempt over the bar. The Spurs striker won't want to see that again on Match of the Day later.

    Sam Willson: Fed up with shocking referee decisions week after week - a clear foul on Isla. Those kind of decisions could cost QPR.

    Mail on Sunday chief sports writer Oliver Holt: QPR-Spurs is a bit of a Kane-Austin shootout. Both playing very well but it's Kane who has the goal.

  52. HALF-TIME

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham

    Harry Kane's 15th league goal divides the two teams. But Charlie Austin is beginning to stir. This derby is bubbling nicely.

    A terrific end to the half. Rob Green comes to QPR's rescue producing a one hand diving save to keep out Kyle Walker's low shot which is deflected off Ryan Mason. QPR power forward and Charlie Austin forces a fine stop from Hugo Lloris.

    "I'm thinking Nedum Onuoha maybe ducks out of this. I'm thinking he gets a shout from Rob Green, who has come for it and totally missed it. Harry Kane has nipped in between them and scored. You are not going to get an easier one than that."

  60. GOAL

    QPR 0-1 Tottenham - Harry Kane

    Harry Kane's season just gets better and better. The Spurs striker gets on the receiving end of Andros Townsend's inswinging high free-kick to power past Rob Green who is guilty of rushing off his line. And all in front of England boss Roy Hodgson. Kane wheels away in celebration.

    "A brilliantly worked chance. Wonderful play. Austin is obviously confident on his left foot, but I think he might have time to take a touch and go with his favoured right. That's as close as we are going to get in this game without seeing a goal. People think possession is good but it's not. It's 70% to 30% Spurs but QPR could be winning."

  62. Post update

    QPR 0-0 Tottenham

    That was a terrific left-footed attempt by Charlie Austin. But QPR need to take one of these chances or run the risk of being on the receiving end of another hard luck story.

  63. HITS THE WOODWORK

    QPR 0-0 Tottenham

    The average age of Tottenham's starting line-up is 23 years and 290 days. It's their youngest in the top-flight 21 years. They're hanging on. QPR are banging on the door and Charlie Austin thumps the ball against Hugo Lloris's bar after the visitors defence is carved open. .

  65. Post update

    QPR 0-0 Tottenham

    QPR are on the charge. That Kyle Walker mistake has given them a lift and the Premier League strugglers go close again as Charlie Austin's first time pass finds Matty Phillips who fires narrowly wide from distance. That has got the home crowd going.

  67. Post update

    QPR 0-0 Tottenham

    What is Kyle Walker doing? The Tottenham defender puts keeper Hugo Lloris in all sorts of trouble with a back pass that gives Charlie Austin a great chance to put QPR ahead. But Lloris comes to his side's rescue with a fine save. Poor by Walker.

    "There are no longer the distractions of the Europa League or a Wembley cup final for Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino's sole focus now is try and stay with their rivals in the race for Champions League football.

    "QPR's record in London derbies this year is awful - they have taken just one point from a possible 21 so far - and I do not see them improving it against Tottenham.

    "Tottenham had to get through a difficult match against Swansea on Wednesday after losing the Capital One Cup final last weekend. They won that one and can move up to sixth place with another three points here, which I think should be enough of an incentive for them.

    "It will still be very hard for Spurs to make it into the top four, but they should certainly be in the mix for a Champions League spot with 10 games to go."

  90. Championship preview

    The FA Cup and Premier League may be stealing the headlines but it's another busy day in the Championship.

    Bournemouth went back to the top last night with a thumping 5-1 win at Fulham but Derby, Middlesbrough and Watford could all end the day in first place. It's as tight and as frantic as ever.

    We're across all of the action in a separate, bespoke Championship live page.

    QPR chairman Tony Fernandes: Big game today. Chris Ramsey and boys doing best they can with injuries suspensions. Still in our hands. We are determined. Not having Leroy Fer, Sandro not fully fit and Joey Barton out for two more games has caused issues. But the boys are playing for the badge. That's all we can ask."

    Harry Kane v Charlie Austin

    Stuie Neale: I would go for Charlie Austin, he has proven himself at all levels of the football pyramid.

    George Craven: Only one way to find out if it's too early for Kane - and that's just to play him. What's Roy got to lose? Everyone starts somewhere.

    Adam Smith: It's too close to call so pick both. It would be one hell of a strike force.

    Who should start up front for England? There are growing calls for Harry Kane and Charlie Austin to start. Get involved via #bbcfootball, text us on 81111 (UK only) or pop your anecdote down on the BBC Sport Facebook and Google+ pages.

  94. Rise from the rubble

    QPR v Tottenham (15:00 GMT)

    Six years ago Charlie Austin was working on building sites. Today, he will replace Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero at the top of the Premier League's goalscoring chart if he nets a hat-trick.

    "I used to get up at six and drive for an hour in my blue van from Bournemouth to Basingstoke - they were the tough days," Austin said. "Especially as the winter came, you had the wet and the cold and the snow and the hail.

    "My dad would let me leave work an hour early if I had a game. I'd drive back an hour to Bournemouth, get my bag ready and be off to the game for a half six meet - so on a Tuesday it was a rush."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    QPR director of football Les Ferdinand on BBC Radio 5 live: "The role is going well and I'm enjoying it. The biggest challenge for me is agents - they all have the best players in the world, who are not playing at your club.

    "If Chris Ramsey says to me we need a player, it's my remit to make sure we have the adequate scouts in place to go out and find four or five players in that position.

    "When Harry Redknapp left we needed someone to help Kevin Bond. Chris came in and got a good response from the lads. He then got a chance to take the team, got a good response and that was it really. The only plan we have is to remain in the Premier League."

  97. Team news

    Former England defender Phil Neville

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It's funny with Harry Kane - you would say with real great players they have one great attribute that is maybe nine out of 10, but Kane has level attributes across the board, maybe sevens or eights.

    "Dedication and hard work are the basis any young professional should have. Chris Ramsey said you couldn't get him off the training ground.

    "Ryan Mason has slipped under the radar. In a couple of week's time there will be an England squad announce by Roy Hodgson and I think he will be up their challenging.

    "If Harry Kane doesn't get picked in next England squad there will be uproar. Not just in the squad but a starting place too.

    "There is a group of them (English strikers), Harry Kane is at the top of the group but Charlie Austin has surprised me the most as I wasn't sure if he would be good enough to make the step up."

    Deck chairs

    Temperatures are on the rise. Scarves and gloves are back in the drawer and the beaches are filling. It's a free weekend for the Premier League - unless you are Chris Ramsey or Mauricio Pochettino.

    This is the top-flight's only game on FA Cup sixth round weekend. It should have taken place last weekend but Tottenham had a pressing Capital One Cup final engagement at Wembley.

    It's a London derby with lots at stake. QPR will climb above Aston Villa and out of the relegation zone if they win. Spurs will move three points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with a win. No time to lounge around on a deck chair.

  103. Capital shootout

    One is a former bricklayer. The other is building a reputation as England's next big goalscoring talent. One is third on the list of Premier League leading scorers. The other is fourth.

    But while Charlie Austin is battling relegation back to the Championship, Harry Kane has his sights on the Champions League next season.

    Can Austin add to his 15-goal tally to help ease QPR's worries near the bottom of the table? Or will Harry Kane continue his remarkable form against London opposition?
