  • QPR 0-0 NOTTINGHAM FOREST
    [kick-off]We are underway in today's lunch-time Championship offering! It's cloudy but dry in west London and both these sides could do with three points. Stuart Pearce will take over as Forest boss in the summer and he is watching on from the stands.

  • QPR 1-0 NOTTINGHAM FOREST
    Austin sets himself up for a volley at goal with a nice first touch but he is a long way out and his effort never looks like troubling Darlow. Rangers fans will be very glad to see their top scorer back and looking sharp though.[qpr]

  • GOAL! - QPR 1-1 NOTTINGHAM FOREST[goal] (Lascelles, 37)

    [ouch]Foster is lucky to not to be booked, if not sent off, for a crude challenge from behind on Armstrong.
    4/12/2014 12:06:38 PM
  • GOAL! - QPR 2-1 NOTTINGHAM FOREST[goal] (Hoilett, 43)
    Great goal from Hoilett! The Rangers wideman has possibly been the man of the first-half and he played a nice little one-two with Carroll before neatly flicking his shot past the advancing Darlow. It's a decent game and Rangers are back in front.
