    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Steven Caulker

    It is all over. A goalless draw. That might well not be enough for QPR.

  3. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Chris Ramsey is screaming at his side. Can they get a winner?


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Wonderful save from Adrian. He flings himself in the air to get a hand to a rasping shot from Matt Phillips.

  5. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    QPR are having chances. Karl Henry's drive is parried by Adrian and a low, teasing cross from Nedum Onuoha evades everyone. Still goalless.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Awful from West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate. Team-mate Enner Valencia is too fast for the QPR defence and sprints down the right wing. His low cross finds an unmarked Kouyate 12 yards out.

    But he cannot hit the target with the ball going harmlessly over the top. He may well be dragged in for some shooting practice on Monday.

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on Final Score

    On disallowed goal: "Goalkeepers are too protected by referees and I don't see why Richard Dunne's goal was disallowed. He's charged through but focused on the ball."

  8. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Nine minutes left. Can QPR get a valuable winner?

  9. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    A looping header from QPR's Leroy Fer lands on top of the net and not in it.

  10. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    That corner for QPR finds Richard Dunne, who has peeled off to the back post, but his header is straight at Adrian. The goalkeeper gathers the ball just underneath the crossbar.

  11. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Another corner for QPR. They are ending brightly.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Not the best of days for Charlie Austin. He missed a penalty earlier on. Now he is booked. And it is a petulant one. He is offside, throws the ball to the ground and gets his name taken.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Those QPR fans think they have the lead. A corner from the left wing finds Richard Dunne, who, six yards out, balloons a header into the air.

    When it comes down, Steven Caulker challenges West Ham goalkeeper Adrian and Dunne is brave to head the ball into the net. But referee Mike Jones says Caulker fouled Adrian. Maybe a bit harsh on the hosts, although Adrian will say he had the ball in his control.

    Richard Dunne
  14. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Carl Jenkinson does well to intercept a corner, but can only head the ball behind for a corner. The R's fans are in great voice. They are doing their bit to get behind their team. Can their team respond?

  15. Join the debate at #BBCQPRWHU

    Ed Reynolds: Two missed penalties by relegation-bound teams! If you can't score from 12 yards there's not much hope is there!

    Sho: QPR and Burnley have had lady luck smile on them. But both too poor to take advantage.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    QPR midfielder Leroy Fer is back after eight games out with a knee injury. He replaces Bobby Zamora.

  17. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Sam Allardyce

    QPR desperately hope that record continues. It could be very bad news for QPR if it doesn't.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Yun Suk-Young comes on for QPR. Defender Clint Hill is the man going off as QPR look for more attacking threat.

  19. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Back to Loftus Road, and QPR desperately need a goal. That goal from Jamie Vardy does Chris Ramsey's side no favours. I still have no idea which way this one is going.

  20. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    Burnley have just missed a penalty. Now they are 1-0 down against Leicester. Jamie Vardy claims the goal with a lethal finish. From a yard out. It came after Michael Duff deflected the ball goalwards.

  21. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    Penalty to Burnley in the vital match at the bottom against Leicester. Matt Taylor, making his first start since August, hits the outside of the post with his spot-kick. It is a day of missed penalties. And costly ones at that.

  22. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Some panic for QPR fans as Stewart Downing looks to be clean through. But some excellent work from Robert Green, acting as a deep-lying sweeper see him sprint off the line and then win a sliding challenge 35 yards from goal. Still goalless.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Carlton Cole is used to coming on as a substitute. It is the 16th time this season he has come off the bench. He replaces Matt Jarvis in West Ham's first change of the day.

  24. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    A good spell for QPR. Bobby Zamora shoots just over, under pressure from James Collins.

  25. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    Newcastle were 1-0 up, now they are 2-1 behind at home to Swansea. They are not safe yet. Hull have also scored to lead 1-0 at Crystal Palace.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Aaron Cresswell

    Wonderful from Robert Green. Aaron Cresswell's 25-yard free-kick zooms over the wall but the keeper gets a hand to it and pushes it up. The ball then hits the top of the crossbar and on to safety.

    The goalkeeper was criticised after a poor clearance let in Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas to score the winner in QPR's last game, but he showed his class then.

  27. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    An early chance in the second half. The ball falls to ex-West Ham striker Bobby Zamora but his weak volley is straight at Adrian, and it is easy for the Hammers goalkeeper.

  28. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Back under way at Loftus Road.

  29. How it stands at the bottom

    Bottom of table

    So this is the Premier League table at half-time.

  30. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    This is how it stands in the other matches. Newcastle conceded an equaliser just before half-time.

  31. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    John Hartson

    Former Wales striker on Final Score

    "Sam Allardyce won't want to finish the season the way they have been playing in recent weeks. They've had a decent chance and have made a good start."


    Steve Wilson

    BBC Match of the Day commentator

    Chrlie Austin penalty

    "QPR need a big half-time team-talk. They missed the best opportunity to go in with the lead, but they have not created too many other chances. One big incident really. Adrian with the save from Charlie Austin's penalty."

  33. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    One added minute.

  34. Join the debate at #bbcqprwhu

    Ohigho Musa: It seems like QPR players are keen on going down. They are forcing their way down.

  35. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    West Ham

    The Hammers were fourth on Christmas Day. Unfortunately for West Ham, that is as good as their season is going to be. But they could still finish eighth. And surely that would be seen as a good season.

  36. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    West Ham full-back Carl Jenkinson is next to try his luck. But shoots over the bar. Well over.

  37. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Some rare action for Robert Green. He dives on to Kevin Nolan's shot after the returning West Ham skipper beat Richard Dunne to create some space, but his 20-yard shot lacked power and was easy for the R's goalkeeper.

  38. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    The Earl is not happy. And his mood nearly got worse. The ball finds Matt Phillips at the edge of the box and his half volley would have called Adrian into action, but luckily for the West Ham goalkeeper, the ball bounces off QPR frontman Bobby Zamora and deflects just wide.

  39. Join the debate at #bbcqprwhu

    The Earl of Jeffs: If West Ham keep playing like this, QPR will still get all three points.

  40. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Matt Phillips drags a shot wide from the edge of the area, but the West Ham fans and players are not happy that Phillips continued as Enner Valencia was lying on the ground after a challenge. But there was no whistle from Mike Jones and Phillips played on.

  41. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    Contrasting fortunes for two teams that are still in danger of going down. Stoke's Charlie Adam has equalised against Sunderland to make it 1-1, while Newcastle lead 1-0 against Swansea thanks to an Ayoze Perez close-range finish.

  42. Post update

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on Final Score

    On Charlie Austin's penalty miss: "Austin went for power and that's the nerves telling. If you go down the middle you always need to go high because the keepers dangle their legs behind when they dive - that's what happened here."

    Matt Self: Adrian to the rescue again, and again.... Hammer of the Year for me.

  44. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    How costly is that Austin penalty miss going to be? That's his second penalty miss of the season.

  45. MISSED PENALTY - Charlie Austin (QPR)

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Charlie Austin

    No! Disaster for Charlie Austin. He smashes his spot-kick hard down the middle, but Adrian dives to his right and blocks the effort with his legs.

  46. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Charlie Austin

    Is Austin about to make it 18 for the season?

  47. PENALTY to QPR


    James Collins handball. Charlie Austin to take it. It was a clear handball, the defender stuck his arm up as Bobby Zamora prodded the ball goalwards and referee Mike Jones points to the spot.

  48. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Another corner for West Ham, and another one that QPR deal with comfortably. The Hammers have had a lot of the ball, but not really done too much with it.

    Nolan and Barton
  49. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Some nifty footwork sees Enner Valencia nip past veteran defender Richard Dunne and get to the byeline. But Steven Caulker is well placed to send the ball for a corner, which the Hammers instantly waste.

  50. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Little inspiration so far from either side. The only real chance we have had was Sandro's first-minute shot which was blocked by Adrian. The home fans are in good voice though. They realise the importance of this match.

    Maybe the pitch will help us see some goals today. A number of players, including Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green, have lost their footing on the surface.

  51. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Chris Ramsey
  52. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    A half-chance for QPR and it falls to Joey Barton. West Ham fail to clear a long throw and the ball falls to the one-time England midfielder, but he can't control his half-volley as the ball sails harmlessly over the top.

  53. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Good strong defending from QPR's Nedum Onuoha as he muscles Enner Valencia off the ball with a shoulder charge. Robert Green still has not had much to do in the QPR goal.

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    The corner comes to nothing, but West Ham are quickly back in the penalty area. Stewart Downing has the ball by the byeline, but an excellently-timed challenge from Sandro wipes out the danger. He had to time his sliding challenge. And he did. Perfectly. Good defending fom Sandro.

  56. Post update

    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Corner to West Ham. Stewart Downing trots over.

  57. Elsewhere in the Premier League

    An early goal at the Britannia Stadium. And it is good news for one of QPR's relegation rivals as Connor Wickham has put Sunderland 1-0 up at Stoke.


    QPR 0-0 West Ham

    Nearly a start to dream of for QPR. A quick breakaway, led by Matt Phillips sees the ball fed to Sandro, the midfielder pings one at goal from a tight angle but West Ham goalkeeper Adrian gets down to his near post to deflect the ball to safety.

  59. KICK-OFF

    Here we go

  60. Post update

    Minute silence

    We have had a minute's silence to remember the people who died in the Bradford fire 30 years ago and now we are ready.

  61. Who is Reece Burke?

    So what a day for teenager Reece Burke. The 18-year-old centre-half, who has only made one first-team appearance this season and that came in the League Cup against League One side Sheffield United.

  62. Post update

    The players have shook hands, it is a nice sunny day in south-west London and we are nearly ready to go.

  63. Lawro's predictions

    Mark Lawrenson

    Each week BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts the results of the Premier League games. This week he is up against world snooker champion Mark Selby, who has tipped West Ham to do his Leicester City side a favour by winning 2-0 at Loftus Road.

    Click here to see their reasoning and also their predictions for the weekend's other Premier League matches.

  64. The players aren't on the beach yet - Allardyce

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce says: "We played extremely well at Leicester and shouldn't have lost the game but Leicester are fighting for their lives so we have to match the fight that QPR have and Burnley will have here.

    "The players have to realise they are not on the beach yet - far from it. The focus should be that we want to finish on a high.


    "People think we're having a bad season because our bad run is coming at the end of the season. Finishing the season well gives everyone a high going into the summer.

    "We wanted to finish with more points than we've ever managed and we should've achieved that a long time ago."

  65. QPR need me, says boss Ramsey

    QPR v West Ham (15:00 BST)

    QPR boss Chris Ramsey says: "I wouldn't say I'm expecting the sack if QPR are relegated but I've been in the game a long time and you have to be realistic about what generally happens, whether it's fair or not fair.

    "I'm going to say it would be unfair because I'll be shopping in Lidl instead of Waitrose, I'll have a different shopping basket.

    "I have to look at it from my personal point of view. The club have to do the best for their long term and if it's not me, I'd fully support whatever they decided to do.

    "But I think it is me. I think the club long-term needs someone like me to have a holistic approach of building the club."

  69. Happy Hammers?

    QPR v West Ham (15:00 BST)

    So what do we make of West Ham's season? As Steve says, they made a bright start with European football seriously talked about as a potential target.

    But in 2015, the wheels have come off for the Hammers, and once again the fans are criticising manager Sam Allardyce. The Hammers boss still does not know if he will be in charge of the team next season.

    Yet the Hammers could still come eighth, which would represent their highest finish since they came seventh in 2001-02.

  70. Post update

    QPR v West Ham (15:00 BST)

    Steve Wilson

    BBC Match of the Day commentator

    "It'll be interesting to see how two weeks without a game has impacted on QPR - a break from the claustrophobic pressure may have done them the world of good.

    Christmas decorations

    "Luckily for Rangers, today's opponents are arguably in worse form than they are. Like the Christmas decorations in Mr Scrooge's house, West Ham started coming down on Boxing Day. Sam Allardyce's team have slipped from fourth to 10th, taking only 12 points in their last 16 games.

    "Despite only two league wins in 16 games, Rangers can point to small margins. Six of their last seven defeats have been by a single goal. Rangers aren't bad at all - but maybe they're just not quite good enough?"

  72. How they stand

    Bottom of the Premier League

    So this is the situation facing QPR. The bottom three go down, and at the moment it is bad news for all three sides that won promotion from the Championship last season.

    We said QPR have a tough run-in. Their last four games..

    2 May v Liverpool (A), 10 May v Manchester City (A), 16 May v Newcastle (H), 24 May v Leicester (A).

  73. Team news

    Only one change for QPR from their last match two weeks ago. Veteran defender Richard Dunne replaces Mauricio Isla, who drops to the bench.

    West Ham hand a Premier League debut to defender Reece Burke, who comes into the side to replace Winston Reid. Elsewhere, Kevin Nolan returns to captain the side with Matt Jarvis also coming into the team. There is no Alex Song or Carlton Cole in the starting line-up.

    QPR: Green, Dunne, Onuoha, Caulker, Hill, Phillips, Barton, Sandro, Henry, Austin, Zamora.

    West Ham: Adrian, Jenkinson, Collins, Burke, Cresswell, Kouyate, Nolan, Noble, Downing, Jarvis, Valencia.

  74. Hello

    Good afternoon and welcome to BBC Sport's live text commentary from the Premier League match between QPR and West Ham. And what a vital game it is for QPR and Chris Ramsey.


    So no time to delay, let's get straight to the team news.

  75. It's now or never

    Cast your minds back to May 2014. Bobby Zamora's dramatic last-minute winner gave QPR a 1-0 win over Derby in the Wembley play-off final to take the R's back into the big time.

    Bobby Zamora

    But, just like the other teams that came up from the Championship, QPR have found it tough going in the Premier League.


    They only have five games to save themselves from relegation, but face a daunting run-in, including away games at Liverpool and Manchester City. But today QPR face a West Ham side in shocking form.

    West Ham

    If QPR are to survive they must get something from this match. It is now or never.
