That's all from me folks, stay tuned for match analysis and reaction.
So, Fulham hang on for a hard-earned three points despite a spirited second-half show from QPR. Mark Hughes looked deeply unsatisfied upon the whistle, but his side have paid for a really poor first-half performance.
Baird becomes Fulham's fourth victim of the yellow card.
And that's his last act, as Wright-Phillips comes off to be replaced by Buzsaky.
Fulham's final change sees Etuhu replace Johnson.
Duff comes on to replace Ruiz for the final stages of the game.
Murphy comes off and is replaced by Chris Baird in Fulham's first change.
Traore replaces the injured Taiwo, who still looks in considerable pain after going down clutching his left leg. Not a good sign for the on-loan AC Milan player.
Riise goes into the book for a foul in the build up to that QPR chance. Phil Dowd played a good advantage.
Dembele goes into the book for hacking at Wright-Phillips and QPR earn a corner from the advantage played.
Thomas Cayzer predicts a 1-1 final score with Taarabt grabbing the equaliser. If I was a betting man, and I am, I'd like the look of that punt. QPR are currently 3/1 to score next.
A quick stat from @Optajoe: All of QPR's 5 red cards this season have come at home, but before this season all 11 of their red cards in the PL had come away.

It's half-time at Loftus Road, where the hosts are a goal and a man down. Diakite, making his debut, can have no complaints amid an opening half of persistent fouling. Pogrebnyak's strike separates the sides, but QPR actually looked less vulnerable with 11 players on the field. It makes for a fascinating second half in prospect. Let's hope the sides can maintain the pace after the restart.
Barton releases Zamora on a counter but Hughes wins the race and that's that for the first half.
Red card Diakite, he can have no complaints. It's another lunge and this time it's one too many. That's his second yellow card.
Diakite mistimes another tackle and this time the ref has had enough. He's in the book inside the first 20 minutes of his QPR debut.
Pogrebnyak is booked for his exuberant celebration with the visiting fans.
It's a fantastic goal for the visitors and it's the Russian Pogrebnyak who finishes off after collecting a sublime Dembele back-heel and rounding Kenny to slot into an open net.
QPR fans - if you disagree get your counter thoughts in. SkyBet offer an attractive price of 5/2 for Zamora to score and be on the winning side.
Zach Kingsbury is another confident Fulham backer: "Fulham to overpower QPR today Jamie. 3-0 with goals from Dempsey and 1 from Dembele finishing QPR off. QPR might grab a consolation but i don't think it'll happen."
Fulham fan Joshua Tingle is in a confident mood today: "Another AJ hat-trick today for The Mighty Fulham."

These sides have gone a combined 25 consecutive league games (QPR 16, Fulham 9) without a clean sheet, so expect goals today folks.
Okay that's enough negativity on the hosts. How about the visitors? Fulham have won just one of their last 12 Premier League away games (W1 D5 L6).
QPR have lost five of their last seven Premier League home games and have dropped the most points from wining positions this season (15) and 13 of those have been relinquished on home soil.
If gambling isn't your thing, you may at least appreciate the stats ahead of kick-off - QPR suffered their heaviest ever Premier League defeat when they lost 6-0 to Fulham earlier this season at Craven Cottage.
While we wait for team news to emerge, let's have a look at some of SkyBet's odds ahead of kick-off. QPR are 13/8 to beat Fulham and get a much-needed win, but they have failed to score in their last five games against their west London neighbours. Fulham are 17/10 to get an away win and the draw is 9/4.
