  1. FULL-TIME

    Leicester 5-1 QPR

    And that folks, is that.

    A truly terrific performance by Leicester which sums up their last two months of the season.

    It is an afternoon that also sums up QPR's season - awful.

    They were second best all day long and were heavily beaten.

    A summer of content for Nigel Pearson, a summer of discontent for Chris Ramsey.

    And with that, we're signing off. Head here for more live text commentary of today's games.

  2. GOAL

    Leicester 5-1 QPR (Kramaric)

    Andrej Kramaric fires in from inside the penalty area after QPR make yet another defensive error, failing to deal with a routine long kick from Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

    This really is horrible for Rangers. They have been completely outplayed and outclassed by a side they came up with from the Championship last season.

  3. Post update

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    Leicester continue to dominate here and the King Power gets ever-more nosier.

    The fans on all four sides are on their feet and clapping. It must be music to the area of Nigel Pearson, and incredibly annoying for a very deflated Chris Ramsey.

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    Karl Henry makes way for youngster Brandon Comley for the final 10 minutes.

    And why not, Chris Ramsey has to plan for next season now. It's going to be an interesting summer at Loftus Road with one heck of a clearout expected.

  5. Hero

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    And here he is scoring and celebrating that goal.

    getty
  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    The crowd rise as one to salute Esteban Cambiasso as the Argentine makes way for Danny Drinkwater.

    The club's player of the year, who scored a lovely left-footed goal today, has yet to decide whether or not to stay next season. It is clear what the fans want him to do. They love him.

    Cambiasso, signing of the season? Discuss.

  7. Post update

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    Some news in from the Britannia Stadium. Steven Gerrard has just scored for Liverpool. On his last ever appearance. Of course he would.

    Pity Stoke were already five goals up...

  8. Post update

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    A decent pic of Marc Albrighton's strike just before half-time.

    getty

    For QPR, that must feel like an awful long time ago now.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    Great reception for Jamie Vardy as the England man - bet the lad will never tire of seeing that - is substituted in the 65th minute.

    It's a chance for Andrej Kramaric to make an impression. He gets a good reception as he saunters on and will be desperate for a second Premier League goal.

  10. Post update

    Leicester 4-1 QPR

    The Leicester fans in the stand have unfurled a banner saying 'The greatest escape ever'. They could be right.

    Victory here - and let's face it, Leicester are going to win - will be seven wins in the last nine matches.

    What a turnaround from a team bottom of the table and seven points adrift heading into April. Astonishing.

  11. GOAL

    Leicester 4-1 QPR (Austin)

    Charlie Austin with a terrific header. Joey Barton gets the assist, chipping the ball into the area and Austin rises highest to guide the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel and net his 18th goal of the season.

  12. Post update

    Leicester 4-0 QPR

    "You fear for QPR every time Leicester put the ball into their area now," says Simon Brotherton on Match of the Day.

    Nail on head. This could be a rout.

  13. GOAL

    Leicester 4-0 QPR (Cambiasso)

    Yes, definitely game over. Esteban Cambiasso drills in a low shot from 12 yards, which thunders in the net and the King Power Stadium goes berserk.

  14. GOAL

    Leicester 3-0 QPR (Ulloa)

    Leonardo Ulloa, with his 13th goal of the season. The striker doesn't know much about it, Wes Morgan's deflected drive from the edge of the box hitting the Argentine in the midriff and nestling in the bottom corner. Game over?

  15. Post update

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    A very dodgy offside decision goes against Reece Grego-Cox, who latches on to a deflected shot six yards out and with only the keeper to beat - only to see the flag go up (wrongly).

    But given the teenager missed the target, he'll no doubt be rather relieved the linesman made an error and spared his blushes.

  16. Post update

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    We're under way again at the King Power and the hosts have made a change.

    Rory Delap replaces Marcin Wasilewski, who we think has gone off with a shoulder injury.

  17. HALF-TIME

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    It's tough being a goalie.

    The half-time break has been dominated by replays of Leicester's first goal, when Alex McCarthy fumbled Riyad Mahrez's shot, allowing Jamie Vardy to score.

    It really was a shocker of a mistake from a man only in the side because of an injury to Rangers' usual number one Rob Green.

  18. HALF-TIME

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    It is fair to say that Leicester are flying at the moment.

    The Foxes have earned 19 points from their last eight matches, having earned the same number of points from their first 29 league fixtures.

    getty

    On top of that, Nigel Pearson's men have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches - as many as they had managed in their previous 31 league games.

    And, get this: they are on the verge of winning three consecutive top-flight home matches without conceding a goal for the first time since January to February 1977.

    This could be quite a day for the Foxes. They're halfway there.

  19. HALF-TIME

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    Simon Brotherton

    Match of the Day commentator

    "There was a celebratory mood among the crowd before the match and there is at half-time too.

    "It has been Leicester dominating from the first whistle and QPR have an awful lot to do."

    Very true. Barring a miracle, there is only one winner here.

  20. GOAL

    Leicester 2-0 QPR

    Marc Albrighton smashes the ball into the net from 12 yards. His second goal for the club.

    A break down the left flank, Schlupp crosses, QPR fail to clear their lines, and Albrighton is allowed to run unchallenged into the box and hammer the ball in.

    Great for Leicester, awful viewing for QPR fans. Such a bad goal to concede, which perhaps tells you all you need to know about Rangers' season.

  21. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Jamie Vardy enjoyed his goal.

    vardy

    And so too will have Roy Hodgson. Vardy, remember, has been called up for England's games against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia next month.

  22. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    That was the very definition of missed by a whisker.

    Matty Phillips, with QPR's first real effort of note, thunders a shot from 20 yards just past the post with Schmeichel well beaten.

    Unlucky. Great effort. Will it gives Rangers some confidence? Hope so, from a neutral's point of view it has been too one-sided so far.

  23. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Jamie Vardy almost doubles his tally for the afternoon, meeting Marc Albrighton's right-wing cross and planting a firm effort goalwards - but keeper McCarthy atones for his earlier error by stopping the ball in the nick of the time.

    That should make McCarthy feel better. It's probably been a long 20 minutes since that Foxes goal.

  24. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Half chance for Leonardo Ulloa. After good play from Marc Albrighton on the right, the Foxes striker hooks a difficult chance on to the roof of the net.

    Leicester still very much in control. QPR chairman Tony Fernandes and director of football Les Ferdinand are looking mighty gloomy up in the stand - though that's probably because the free beer voucher wasn't extended to the away contingent...

  25. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    And here, perhaps, is the reason why. Remember that free beer voucher the owners are handing out to home fans today...

    getty

    Go on chaps, drink up.

  26. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Here's the scene at the King Power stadium, which kind of says it all really. The atmosphere, helped by that early Vardy striker, is bouncing.

    getty
  27. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Defender Nedum Onuoha shows exactly why he's a defender.

    He provides QPR's first shot at goal, but misses the target by about 35 yards. Not surprisingly, home keeper Kasper Schmeichel doesn't bother moving.

  28. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Just before that Vardy strike, there was a slightly embarrassing moment for Reece Grego-Cox.

    The 18-year-old, making his full Premier League debut, strode towards the edge of the box and was primed to shoot. He was dreaming of a fairytale start to the game. He brought his right foot back, went to smash it and... his left foot slipped, he hit the tamest of shots which involved the ball rolling gently sideways, and then fell to the ground.

    Not one he'll enjoy watching back on Match of the Day later.

  29. Post update

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    Was there a hint of offside about that goal?

    Vardy looked straight at the linesman after knocking the ball home, as if fearful it would be ruled out. But the replay shows the linesman got it spot on - onside.

  30. GOAL

    Leicester 1-0 QPR

    And speak of the devil, Jamie Vardy scores from close range.

    It's a horror moment for keeper Alex McCarthy. Replacing the injured Rob Green, and making only his second start of he season, the 25-year-old spills a tame-looking shot from Riyad Mahrez and Vardy is there to smash the ball into the net.

    What a way to celebrate that England call-up.

  31. On the up

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    Jamie Vardy should have an extra spring in his step this afternoon.

    The 28-year-old was called up to Roy Hodgson's England squad this week, less than three years after playing in Fleetwood Town's Conference title-winning side of 2012.

    getty

    Vardy, who became the most expensive non-league footballer when he signed for the Foxes for £1m in May 2012, has been included in England's squad for the games against Republic of Ireland and Slovenia in June.

    getty

    The frontman played a key role in the Championship-winning side of 2013-14 and has been a regular in the Foxes' remarkable end-of-season run which has seen Nigel Pearson's side retain their Premier League status with a game to spare.

  32. Post update

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    Nasty moment for Riyad Mahrez as the Leicester man takes a tumble and appears to pull a muscle in the groin area.

    He looks in pain - as you would be if you hurt your groin; no man wants that - but gets to his feet after a couple of minutes of treatment. It's good news for the Foxes, for Mahrez has been a key man this campaign - 25 league starts and four goals.

  33. Post update

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    It is all Leicester early doors.

    With the club's player of the season, the evergreen Esteban Cambiasso, pulling the strings, the Foxes are dominant.

    Jeffrey Schlupp smashes a shot into the side netting. Close but no cigar.

    The din still hasn't died down, the fans are loving every minute of this.

  34. 'Last place QPR want to be'

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    "This is akin to a celebratory homecoming fro the Leicester players. The home fans have a chance to thank their heroes," says BBC Match of the Day commentator Simon Brotherton.

    "For QPR it is the last place they want to be having a look at what might have been for them. Getting back out of the Championship is easier said than done."

  35. CLOSE!

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    Leonardo Ulloa, Leiester's 12-goal top scorer, comes so close to an early opener but curls his shot inches wide after breaking into the box. Almost the perfect start.

  36. Post update

    Leicester 0-0 QPR

    And we're off. The King Power in bouncing, that free beer the club has handed out clearly having an effect.

    The pitch looks terrific - let's hope the match is too.

  37. Pressure's on

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Sorry for this QPR fans ... though it does prove that there is something at stake today for Rangers, who, presumably, will be mighty keen to avoid having their own dubious Premier League claim to fame.

    qpr
  38. Post update

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    QPR won the reverse fixture in November 3-2, with Charlie Austin scoring the winner.

    The only previous Premier League meetings between the sides came in the 1994-95 season; Rangers won 2-0 at home and drew 1-1 away.

  39. '2-0'

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson has done his usual predictions for the BBC Sport website, which you'll find here.

    He reckons today's encounter will end 2-0 to the Foxes.

    "Leicester's survival is a fantastic achievement," said Lawro. "Foxes manager Nigel Pearson has had a difficult campaign for all sorts of reasons but, like his players, he came through."

  40. Tale of two teams

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    BBC Match of the Day commentator Simon Brotherton with some thoughts ahead of today's game:

    "After the great escape was completed last weekend at Sunderland, it's a chance for Leicester fans to welcome the team home and celebrate Premier League survival.

    Members of Leicester's team celebrate their draw with Sunderland

    The supporters deserve it too, after backing the team and the manager throughout, while creating a constantly noisy and positive atmosphere during recent home games.

    In stark contrast, this fixture doesn't offer much for any QPR fan thinking of heading up the M1 for one last Premier League game.

    getty

    It promises to be a summer of change at Loftus Road, with head coach Chris Ramsey - already appointed on a permanent basis - and director of football Les Ferdinand ready to start a major clearout."

  41. Post update

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    If proof were needed that this was party-time, the Leicester players are milling around in the tunnel with their children, and will walk out on to the pitch with their little ones in tow.

    Hope they snap out of their celebratory mood in time for kick-off, can't see Nigel Pearson being too enamoured with a defeat today.

  42. 'Relief ... and pride too'

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Nigel Pearson has been giving us his pre-match thoughts too.

    Asked whether he felt pride or relief this week, the Foxes manager said: "Both, but relief is the over-riding emotion that I have.

    "I've a lot of pride in terms of how the players have been able to stick with what's been a very difficult task, and the staff too.

    getty

    "We've continued to try and do things the right way. It's been hard and I'm not trying to paper over cracks - it has been an amazing turnaround in the last couple of months.

    "But it is all part of the learning process and there have been huge improvements in terms of where we were a couple of months ago and where we are now."

  43. Let's end season on a high

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Chris Ramsey has been speaking to the BBC and says his players "want to end the season on a high note".

    "It is no secret some players are leaving us so it will a job interview for them, and players that will still be here next season want to make a mark," the QPR boss said.

    getty

    "It has been a difficult week because there has been a lot of disappointment around the place but the players have been fantastic, as they have been all season, and I think they are looking forward to the game."

    Could be a good game this if both teams are going for it.

  44. Post update

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    The tannoy announcer at the King Power has just told supporters that the players will return after the final whistle to do a lap of honour (the Leicester lads that is, not the QPR ones - that would be a bit odd).

    He ends with the traditional "but to allow them to do this, please refrain from running on to the pitch".

    We shall see whether his words are in vain or not...

  45. Standing in

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    It's a big day for Alex McCarthy.

    The 25-year-old will make only his second start of the season, coming in for Rob Green, who suffered concussion during last week's win over Newcastle.

    getty

    Speaking to the BBC ahead of the game, McCarthy said it had been "a difficult week" because everyone knows the club has been relegated.

    "But we've stuck together and regrouped," he said. "Training has been hard. We've kept our standards high because we know we've got to go again next season."

    Asked about opponents Leicester, he said: "Full credit to them. They didn't have much luck in the first half of the season but they kept going and have got to where they are now because of it."

  46. Cheers

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    It's not often in life that we get something for nothing, so Leicester fans should be in a good mood today.

    The club's owners are dipping into their pockets and buying the first round of beers.

    getty

    The Foxes secured their Premier League status last week, which prompted vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha to announce: "We want to say thank you to our fans for their incredible support this season. "It's been key in the team securing another season in the top flight."

    That thank you will involve supporters being given a voucher to claim a beer - or a bottle of water, for the more disciplined - at the King Power Stadium.

    QPR fans travelling to Leicester and hoping to drown their relegation sorrows on the cheap will be disappointed though - the offer only extends to home fans.

  47. On for the hat-trick?

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Joey Barton will, as usual, be at the heart of the QPR midfield today, but will he get the ref working?

    Twitter

    Answer: very probably.

  48. TEAM NEWS

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    QPR make three changes as boss Chris Ramsey aims to finish a difficult season on a high.

    Alex McCarthy makes his second start of the season in goal, replacing the concussed Rob Green. Yun Suk-Young also comes in, along with 18-year-old striker Reece Grego Cox, who makes his full Premier League debut. He's a highly-rated young player so it will be interesting to see how he fares.

    QPR line-up: McCarthy, Onuoha, Hill, Dunne, Suk-Young, Phillips, Henry, Barton, Fer, Austin, Grego-Cox.

  49. TEAM NEWS

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    First up, a spot of team news, starting with the home side...

    Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has named an unchanged side, which means Jamie Vardy - fresh from his England call-up - will start up front alongside Leonardo Ulloa.

    The Foxes are hoping to make it seven wins from their last nine outings at a King Power stadium which will be bouncing after survival was confirmed last weekend courtesy of a goalless draw at Sunderland.

    The Foxes' starting line-up: Schmeichel, Morgan, Vardy, King, Albrighton, Huth, Schlupp, Cambiasso, Ulloa, Mahrez, Wasilewski.

  50. Game on

    Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Now some of you more cynical folk might claim there's nothing at all at stake in a game between a side which has already confirmed its safety and a team already relegated.

    And you'd be absolutely right.

    But, hey, lighten up will you? It's the final day of the Premier League season, it's a match in which both clubs are expected to go for the jugular and attack and, who knows, it could end up 5-5 and be the lead game on tonight's Match of the Day. Then again...

    Ramsey

    It's Leicester v QPR, it kicks off in half-an-hour, and we'll have all the build-up and every key moment covered right here. Enjoy.
