And that's it! QPR hold on for the victory, which sees them go three points clear of the relegation zone. Spurs, meanwhile, take a big knock to their top-four ambitions, with Harry Redknapp's men finishing proceedings in fifth. Well, I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have. I'm Ryan Gordon, and here's wishing you a great rest of your weekend. Cheers all!
Third and final change of the night for Spurs, with Giovanni dos Santos coming on for Scot Parker.
QPR's work has just been made that much harder as Taarabt is shown a second yellow card for arguing with the referee. Hero to villain for the former Spurs man, who feels more than slightly aggrieved to have been sent off.
Bale really has been in the wars today, and he's hacked down from behind by Nedum Onuoha, who earns himself a yellow card.
First change of the evening for QPR as Samba Diakite is replaced by Akos Buzsaky.
Another change for Spurs now, with Assou-Ekotto coming off, Danny Rose the man to replace him.
Jake Holyhead says: I think harry needs to leave, and take modric with him. Modric just hasn't been good enough, he just isn't a spur in the heart and you can tell. I hope bale leaves as it will help him become a much better player, it would kill me to see it but it would benefit him. David moyes for next spurs manager!
Gino, a very disappointed Spurs fan, writes: Spurs supporter over 50yrs and I have seen the good the bad and very bad but i am totally puzzled by our recent displays watching the game to day SHAMBLES. our defence look like they have never played together MODRIC....... sell him doesnt score enough goals and doesnt control make games either and why do we play RVD in Midfield. Too many passes and slow build up At this rate we might just finish SIXTH
One change at the break, with Spurs bringing Aaron Lennon on in place of Sandro.
That moment proves to be the last piece of action for the half as referee Mark Clattenburg blows his whistle and sends the players down the tunnel. It's QPR 1-0 Spurs at the break, so join me shortly for the second 45 minutes at Loftus Road.
GOAL! QPR 1-0 Tottenham! Adel Taarabt!
First yellow card of the evening goes to Bobby Zamora, who wrestles King to the ground after losing possession on the edge of the area.
Dev says: Emphatic win from Newcastle puts pressure on Arsenal and Tottenham. Newcastle are unstoppable. I think QPR will cause an upset to Spurs fans tonight with Barton getting a brace. Bale for Spurs. 2-1 to QPR.
Adam Gillis writes in: QPR are the premier leagues giant killers of late and I can't see that changing here today, I think Taarabt will haunt his old club by getting 3
Ryan Williams (great first name by the way) is up next, and says: Hi ryan im going for a 3-1 victory to tottenham with VDV scoring first.
Ricky is the next to make himself heard, and writes: Wow wheres ade and saha? Our Bench looks thin to say the least...
Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first caller! Hi, Nick here from London and life long Spurs fan. Looking forward to getting back to winning ways today, however, based on our previous 7 results the odds are not looking good. Newcastle are snapping away at our heels as are Chelsea. Arsenal have dropped a few points in the last 2 games, so this would be an ideal opportunity to get back in there. COYS!!
The team sheets have just come across my desk, but why not first take the time to email your own thoughts or predictions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plenty to play for then, but why not make it a little bit more interesting? Our friends at Sky Bet have put QPR at 5/2 to snatch the points today, while Tottenham are even-money for victory.
