The final whistle goes and QPR have claimed a thoroughly-deserved 3-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux which will leave Warnock delighted but opposite number McCarthy seething after such a one-sided encounter.
Tensions threaten to boil over just before full-time following an aerial challenge between Ferdinand and Vokes, which sees both players cautioned.
GOAL Campbell puts the seal on a great day for QPR as he slots the ball home from close range following another excellent run and cut-back from Traore.
Guedioura quickly follows Faurlin into the book after a mistimed challenge of his own.
Faurlin becomes the second player of the match to receive a booking following a foul in midfield.
Gabbidon returns to his feet but is still moving gingerly and Warnock wastes no time in putting on Fitz Hall.
Warnock quickly makes his second change, taking off the creative talents of Taarabt to bring on a different type of player in Tommy Smith.
QPR also make a change, their first of the afternoon, as Bothroyd makes way for DJ Campbell.
Hunt receives warm applause as Jarvis is withdrawn for the closing stages.
Bothroyd becomes the first player to receive a booking following an ugly clash with Stearman.
The second half gets underway and McCarthy has reacted to that first-half calamity by making a double change, bringing on Sam Vokes and Adlene Guedioura for Elokobi and Michael Kightly.
The half-time whistle goes and QPR lead 2-0 after an impressive display in the opening 45 minutes. However, as well as Warnock's men have played, Wolves have been awful and the Wolves players must be quaking at the thought of returning to the dressing room to face McCarthy as they go off to a chorus of jeers.
GOAL Alejandro Faurlin controls the ball on his chest just outside the area and shows expert technique to volley QPR into a 2-0 lead.
GOAL Barton nets his first goal for QPR but it is not exactly a classic, as he scuffs a shot into the bottom corner from Shaun Wright-Phillips' mis-hit cross.
Mark said: "Hello there. I can see a better game today than it looks on paper. Shame Fletcher is missing but Ward moving forward alongside Doyle upfront is still a threat. QPR are still in need to get the balance right in their new look line up and still lack their short time as a group. With that I will go for a comfortable Wolves win 3-1. UP THE WOLVES !!"
Matas has emailed in with this: "As a Liverpool fan I got to say Wolves will win this one! Their line up is amazing."
This just in from our friends at Sky Bet: Wanderers are 10/11 to keep up their fine start to the season. Rangers are 3/1 and the draw is 5/2.
Gabriel is the first to get in touch, saying: "I'm a Birmingham City fan but I can see a Wolves win here. If the players can recover from their defeat to Tottenham, then the quality in that team will see them nip this game in the bud. As for QPR, Adel Taarabt doesn't seem to be working his magic in his big step up and I'm struggling to see where the goals will come from for them. If they do stay up, it'll be because of the team keeping clean sheets and Neil Warnock buying a decent goalscorer in January. Verdict- 1-0."
