  2. 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."

  3. 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."

  4. 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.


    QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

    Henri Lansbury

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


    QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

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


    QPR 1-2 Nottingham Forest

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.


    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. QPR 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Chris Ramsey

    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.

  15. GOAL (Lansbury pen)

    QPR 1-1 Nottingham Forest

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


    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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...


    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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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. 

  22. 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.

  23. 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. 

  24. 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. 

  25. 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.

  26. 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.


    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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.


    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.

  32. HT: QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Chris O'Grady

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

  34. Saturday's Championship action

    Top two meet at Amex Stadium

    Tomer Hemed

    Brighton and Hull, the Championship's top two at the start of play today, meet at the Amex Stadium. Before kick-off, both sides will pay tribute to the victims of last month's Shoreham air disaster.

    Derby will hope to achieve their first league win of the season when they take on Preston. Record signing Bradley Johnson is expected to make his debut for the Rams.

    Tomorrow from 11:45 BST, we've got live text commentary of the weekend's final Championship game - Fulham v Blackburn Rovers.

  35. Sa hits hat-trick in Reading rout

    Friday: Reading 5-1 Ipswich Town

    Orlando Sa

    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.

  36. 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...


    QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    And it's half-time at Loftus Road.

  38. 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. 

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Right, we've got five minutes until half-time and it cannot come soon enough. Very little in the way of action at Loftus Road. 

  42. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Nottingham Forest's David Vaughan tries his luck from 25 yards but it doesn't trouble Rob Green. At the other end centre-half Matt Mills receives a boot to the face. It's that sort of game.

  43. Elsewhere...

    Premier League: Everton 2-0 Chelsea

    Roberto Martinez

    We're still waiting for our first goal in the Championship, but the deadlock has been broken in the Premier League.

    Steven Naismith has scored twice to give Everton a 2-0 lead against champions Chelsea at Goodison Park. No wonder Roberto Martinez looks so pleased.

    Click here for coverage of that match and the rest of today's Premier League action.

  44. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Massimo Luongo

    Few groans of frustration around Loftus Road but plenty of encouragement also. The hosts are struggling to get a hold of this game against a very organised Nottingham Forest outfit.


    QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Gabriele Angella is continuing to feel the effects of that earlier clash and he is off the pitch again. It brings an end to his QPR debut and Grant Hall is brought into proceedings.  

  46. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Nottingham Forest are pressing here and Ryan Mendes again shows quick feet before dragging a shot from 20 yards wide of Green's goal. 

  47. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Perhaps Forest could have done with this man on the end of the chance that fell to Eric Lichaj a moment ago...

    Michail Antonio

    Antonio left Forest for a reported fee of about £7m.

  48. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Chris O'Grady continues to prove a nuisance up front for Nottingham Forest, and after brilliant hold-up play he feeds Eric Lichaj, but the full-back's strike from 12 yards is straight at the legs of Rob Green.

  49. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Matt Phillips does well on the Rangers right and feeds Daniel Tozser on the edge of the box but his strike is well blocked. 

  50. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Nottingham Forest have their best spell of the game, keeping the ball, dominating possession but they attempt to split the QPR defence and Chris O'Grady is caught offside. Disappointing. 


    QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    QPR's James Perch is booked for a cynical scythe on the fleet-footed Ryan Mendes.

  52. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    QPR have their second corner of the game but Michael Mancienne heads it clear for a throw-in and the chance is gone.

  53. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Nottingham Forest are taking the sting out of the game and Chris O'Grady, who is a big old unit, is putting himself about up front. 

  54. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Dougie Freedman

    You have to go all the way back to 28 February to find Forest's last away win - a 3-0 victory at Reading.

    Few alarms for them so far in the opening 15 minutes at Loftus Road.

  55. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Charlie Austin

    Still waiting for things to settle down here at Loftus Road and we are still awaiting our first attempt on target. Charlie Austin the latest QPR player to try his luck from range but it's well wide.

  56. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Angella, now sporting a blue head bandage, rejoins proceedings and we're back up to 11 v 11.

  57. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    QPR debutant Gabriele Angella is claiming foul play after receiving a stray elbow to the face. He's covered in claret and goes off for treatment.

  58. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Matt Phillips flashes a shot wide for QPR in what has been a scrappy start to the game. Debutant Ryan Mendes looks lively for Nottingham Forest, who seem to be playing 4-2-3-1 with Chris O'Grady up top.

  59. QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    QPR forcing the game and they have an early corner which is cleared comfortably.

  60. KICK-OFF

    QPR 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    We are under way at Loftus Road as the hosts get the ball rolling.

  61. Ready for kick-off

    QPR v Nottingham Forest

    Teams emerge from the tunnel, fans in fine voice, we're approaching kick-off...

  62. Champagne Charlie

    QPR v Nottingham Forest

    Charlie Austin

    Reading pair Orlando Sa and Nick Blackman, who both found the net for the Royals last night, also have four league goals this season.

    Former Burnley striker Austin scored three times in the first two league games that QPR played at Loftus Road this term.

  63. Austin with a point to prove

    QPR v Nottingham Forest

    QPR boss Chris Ramsey did not expect to still have Charlie Austin in his arsenal this weekend and believes the striker will now be a man on a mission after top-flight clubs failed to take the chance to sign him.

    "Hand on heart, I didn't see us preparing for this game with Charlie in the squad," said Ramsey.

    "But he's still here and he probably feels as though he's got a point to prove now - and he really wants to do well for QPR."
