NO CHANGES FOR QPR
So boss Harry Redknapp has named an unchanged starting XI from the side that beat Wigan Athletic in the second leg of the Play-Off Semi-Finals. That means the R's should again line-up in a 4-4-2 formation with Simpson, Onuoha, Dunne and Hill across the back. Barton and O'Neil will marshall the centre of midfield with Hoilett and Kranjcar either side and Austin and Doyle up top.
We are 10 minutes away from kick-off here at Wembley Stadium and the heavens have opened along with the thunder a lightning. We're in for a right storm!
The two teams are in the tunnel and ready. Manager Harry Redknapp will lead QPR out whilst Steve McClaren leads out Derby County to perform the pre-match ceremonial duties.
The national anthem is now being sung on the pitch.
OK get ready, strap yourselves in and here we go. Derby to get the match underway.
We are underway. Come on you R's!!!!!

Chance for Derby as Ward's cross from the left finds Ward at the back post but his header goes over Green's bar.
27 minutes Will Hughes goes to ground under challenge from Dunne but the referee waves it way. Looks the correct decision.
Change coming up for QPR as Armand Traore readies himself to come on.

41 minutes and Rob Green is alert to turn a free-kick from Jamie Ward around the post for a corner.
