POST MATCH CELEBRATIONS: BIRMINGHAM
Following today's 2-0 win against Birmingham City, QPR's players and staff celebrated with the 1,300 plus supporters who made the trip to St. Andrews.
87 mins: Ravel Morrison makes way to a warm reception from all four sides of the stadium. Replaced by Tom Carroll.
Looks like an injury is going to force Kevin Doyle off. He's down receiving treatment at the moment and Will Keane is readying himself to come on.
Into the final ten minutes at St. Andrews. Don't think it will take too long to work out today's Man of the Match.
72 mins: GGGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOAL! Ravel Morrison grabs a second with a cool finish from just inside the area after Jermaine Jenas plays him in. All started through Gary O'Neil. Time to tighten it up now and play it out.
70 mins: Gary O'Neil comes on to replace Junior Hoilett. Harry to try and sure up the midfield a little as QPR have been a bit overrun during the last ten.
Could be a good afternoon now Millwall lead 1-0 at Derby County along with Forest trailing to Barnsley. Would be feeling a lot more confident if we can grab a second goal however.
58 mins: Nikola Zigic has just been cheered off as he is replaced by Frederico Macheda. Home fans clearly agreeing with Birmingham boss Lee Clark's decision.
56 mins: Morrison just had the ball in the back of the net for QPR but he was offside. Looked a tight decision but just offside the replay shows.
Ravel Morrison has been excellent so far, but gloves in March? This is practically Factor 20 conditions.
Here we go for the second half, a big 45 minutes needed from QPR to ensure all three points return to London this evening. No changes for either side at the break.
CROSSBAR! Clint Hill very nearly with a second for QPR as his header inside the six-yard box from Barton's free-kick crash back off the woodwork. Rangers should be cruising really. Three minutes left of normal time.
38 mins: Birmingham on top at the moment as Chris Burke turns BAE inside out. Fortunately for QPR ex-Aston Villa man Richard Dunne was his usual calm self and cleared away the danger.
STATS: Just had word that QPR have had 72% of the possession so far but that second goal hasn't quite come. Would be wrong to say is has all been one way though as Birmingham have forced Green into two good saves.
WHAT.A.CHANCE! Troare unmarked at the back post has all the time in the world to watch Doyle's cross float in to him but Traore slices on the volley and it goes wide. Nearly 2-0 there.
Armand Traore is having free reign in midfield, breaking forward at every opportunity. Had the beating of the Birmingham defence two or three times now. That after Robert Green made a crucial one handed save.
14 mins: GGGGGGGGGOOOOOALLLLLLLLLL! Ravel Morrison scores with a delightful free-kick from 22-yards to the left of the penalty area. He's been the biggest threat for QPR and he's put the away side ahead. Morrison celebrated his goal against his former side. We like that!
11 mins: Ravel Morrison nearly does this for QPR in a game. Best start we've made to a match for a number of weeks. We need say no more!
Positive start from QPR who are leading the attack through Ravel Morrison. The former Birmingham City loanee causing the back four all sorts of problems. Could be a potential match winner against one of his ex-sides of we can get him on the ball more often.
KICK-OFF: Ravel Morrison and Jermaine Jenas get us under way and it is a 4-4-1-1 with Hoilett hugging the left hand side and Traore on the right for the time being. Was really effective at times against Leeds United and it seems Harry Redknapp thought so as well.
TWO CHANGES AT BRUM
QPR chief Harry Redknapp has made two changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Leeds United last weekend. Joey Barton, back from a two game ban, has replaced Karl Henry in midfield whilst Benoit Assou-Ekotto is favoured for Aaron Hughes in defence. Not confirmed yet but looks like a 4-4-1-1 with Traore and Hoilett out wide with Morrison just behind Doyle.
