  1. Thanks for joining me. Full report and quotes to follow.

  2. 90

    Swansea 4 QPR 1. Far too easy for The Swans. Harry Redknapp has a hell of a job on his hands to keep his side in the top flight if they produce more lacklustre displays like this.

  3. 88

    WOODWORK! Wright-Phillips' great volleyed effort comes back off the bar. Would have been goal of the game for sure!

  4. 87

    Zamora's low cross is cut out by Michel Vorm. Good goalkeeping.

  5. 85

    Granero has another go from a free-kick, but his effort is blocked.

  6. 81

    Michu comes off with a slight knock, and is replaced by Luke Moore.

  7. 79

    Granero's attempt sums up QPR's day, as it flies way over.

  8. The bookmakers didn't predict five goals at the Liberty Stadium today - Sky Bet go evens that there are no more goals.

  9. 78

    Taarabt almost curls wonderful effort in, but flies just wide.

  10. 75

    All Swansea still. Starting to enjoy themselves out there.

  11. 71

    De Guzman whips great ball in, but Dyer can't get on the end of it.

  12. 70

    QPR pressing, but Swans holding firm. Zamora has effort blocked.

  13. 68

    In the meantime, the ineffective Jenas has come off, to be replaced by Wright-Phillips.

  14. 68

    That man Michu again. Wonderful team goal. Michu runs onto a lovely through ball, and flicks the ball past Cesar.

  15. 68

    GOAL!!! Swansea 4 QPR 1. Michu.

  16. 66

    Pace of the game has slowed somewhat.

  17. 63

    Kemy Agustien comes on for the excellent Wayne Routledge. Seems to have slight knock.

  18. 61

    Taarabt dances his way through, but finds only the side-netting.

  19. 59

    Correction, it was Bartley on the line. Penalty claims were valid too. Williams with a clear handball.

  20. 59

    Off the line! As players appeal for a penalty, Mbia bobbles an effort at goal, and Davies gets back on the line to clear!

  21. 58

    QPR have had the wind taken out of them after their brief lifeline.

  22. QPR's lifeline didn't last long, they're now as long as 66/1 to turn this game around. They'll have to score next if they're to mount any sort of challenge - Adel Taarabt is 10/1 to score next.

  23. 55

    Routledge almost extends lead, but Cesar is out quickly to smother close-range effort.

  24. 50

    Cesar again at fault, as Hernandez should not have been allowed to squeeze that in from there.

  25. 50

    Just as QPR get themselves back into it, they shoot themselves in the foot. Pablo Hernandez weaves his way into the box, unchallenged, and sneaks a left-footed shot past Cesar into the far corner.

  26. 50

    GOAL!!! Swansea 3 QPR 1. Hernandez.

  27. 47

    Zamora makes instant impact. Taarabt drives into the box, fires a low shot, which Vorm can only parry into the path of the onrushing Zamora, who taps in. Game on!

  28. 47

    GOAL!!! Swansea 2 QPR 1. Zamora.

  29. 45

    Not the best start to the half as Cesar miskicks!

  30. 45

    Double change for QPR as Bobby Zamora and Esteban Granero come on.

  31. The visitors are now a massive 50/1 to overcome Swansea's lead, and 12/1 to salvage a draw, but if you fancy that to happen it may prove more lucrative to opt for a correct score of 2-2 at 16/1. Sky Bet go 4/1 that there will be no more goals, while Michu is 9/2 to add to his tally with the next goal.

  32. QPR surely will change things up second half? Time for Bobby Zamora? What is going wrong?

  33. Send me your half-time thoughts. Tweet me: @Pistolpeteh86 or email me:

  34. Swansea 2 QPR 0. Really poor from a team that is in dire need of the points. The R's are just not involved at all. Easy for Swansea.

  35. 45

    Ben Davies and Armand Traore both booked. Troare cautioned for earlier late challange.

  36. 45

    One minute of stoppage time..

  37. 43

    Great pressure from the Swans, who force Cesar to slice clearance.

  38. 41

    Long ball to nobody once again from the R's. Harry Redknapp must already be considering some changes.

  39. 40

    Adel Taarabt has lost it! Smashes the ball away after conceding a foul, and is booked. Then he pushes and shoves a few players!

  40. 39

    Clint Hill delays his pass, and is tackled, letting Nathan Dyer in, but he is adjudged to be offside.

  41. 38

    He came off with an ankle problem. Seems more of a precaution ahead of their trip to Wembley.

  42. 38

    News on Flores coming in.

  43. 36

    Cesar punches clear. Ball comes back in, but Dyer fires over.

  44. 36

    Michu reacts first to Ben Davies' deflected cross, but his excellent effort is blocked. Corner.

  45. 35

    Once again, back to Swansea possession.

  46. 33

    Kyle Bartley comes on as Flores departs. Could he be a doubt for the Capital One Cup final in two weeks time?

  47. Stretcher is coming on...

  48. 31

    Delay now as Chico Flores gets some treatment.

  49. 30

    Samba wins the header, but falls to a White shirt and is easilly cleared.

  50. 29

    QPR with a free-kick in a dangerous area...

  51. 27

    We have had three changes of the ball already. None of them QPR have done anything with!

  52. Can QPR battle back? They are now 33/1 to win and 12/1 to salvage a draw from here.

  53. 23

    Swansea with a free-kick, and just happy to pass the ball back and keep possession. Just like watching Brazil this!

  54. 21

    All Swansea. Just stroking the ball around with ease.

  55. 17

    Rangel just wasn't picked up. Jamie Mackie the guilty party, not tracking his man. Too easy at the moment for the Swans.

  56. 17

    Routledge threads a wonderful ball in behind to find Rangel in space, who has time to have two bites at the cherry, slotting home the rebound after Cesar save.

  57. 17

    GOAL!!! Swansea 2 QPR 0. Rangel.

  58. 16

    QPR finally have an attack. Townsend whips a great ball in, with de Guzman nipping it off the toes of Mbia.

  59. 14

    Swansea dominating proceedings.

  60. 13

    Michu again just abouts gets his shot away, but doesn't have enough on it to beat Cesar.

  61. 11

    Rouledge getting much of the ball, and causing more problems to the beleaguered QPR defence.

  62. 10

    Very much Swansea in the ascendancy...

  63. 7

    Cesar will be disappointed, as he parried it straight into the path of the Spaniard, who was very fortunate sliced shot managed to find the net.

  64. 7

    Nathan Dyer's long distance shot is only parried out by Julio Cesar, and Michu mishits the rebound, looping the ball in.

  65. 7

    GOAL!!! Swansea 1 - 0 QPR. Michu.

  66. 6

    Keep your thoughts coming in folks...

  67. 6

    Swansea looking menacing here. Lots of pace and vigour about their play.

  68. 4

    Dyer again is troubling the QPR defence. This time the pass is a little heavy, and runs out for a goalkick.

  69. 2

    Nathan Dyer gets in behind the QPR backline but is beaten to it. Corner

  70. 1

    We are underway...

  71. QPR are in dire need of the three points with just two wins all season. They look up for this.

  72. Keep your thoughts coming in. Does Vorm deserve his place back in the side despite the form of Tremmel?

  73. The teams are in the tunnel!

  74. Without January signing Loic Remy, Jamie Mackie will lead the line for the R's.

  75. The Swans have also been short of goals recently, and Michu and co will be looking for vast improvement against the Premier League's bottom side.

  76. So Jermaine Jenas makes his first start for the R's. Could he be the creative spark that Harry Redknapp's side are in desperate need of?

  77. Neil Swarbrick is the man in the middle today.

  78. Swansea XI: Vorm, Rangel, Davies, Williams, Chico, Ki, Michu, Dyer, De Guzman, Hernandez, Routledge

  79. QPR XI: Julio Cesar, Onuoha, Samba, Traore, Hill, Townsend, Derry, Mbia, Taarabt, Jenas, Mackie

  80. The teams are in...

  81. On that day we got our first glimpse of the Michu, and he has taken the Premier League by storm ever since!

  82. The Swans will be hoping for a repeat of their 5-0 demolition of The Hoops at Loftus Road on the opening day of the season.

  83. I would love to know your thoughts ahead of this intriguing encounter. Is this the start of QPR's great escape? Can Swansea find their goalscoring touch again? Tweet me: @Pistolpeteh86 or email me:

  84. Im Pete Hall, and I will be taking you through every kick as it happens live!

  85. Good afternoon folks! Welcome to our live coverage of this clash between Swansea and QPR from the Liberty Stadium.
