  1. Goodbye

    That's it for this evening - thanks for joining me for this west London derby.

    It turned out to be a happy occasion for Brentford and their fans, but QPR's patchy form at Loftus Road continued.

    Remember, we'll have live text coverage of all of tomorrow's EFL action from 14:00 BST.

    See you then.

  2. Recap: QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Romaine Sawyers scored his first goal for Brentford as they beat Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road for the first time in 52 years.

    Josh Clarke opened the scoring, moving past Nedum Onuoha before squeezing a shot under QPR keeper Alex Smithies.

    Sawyers met a Maxime Colin pass with a fine first-time effort into the top left-hand corner to add a second.

    Idrissa Sylla went closest to a QPR response, only for John Egan to nod the goal-bound header over the bar.

  4. FT: QPR 0-2 Brentford

    That win - Brentford's first at Loftus Road since 1964, moves the Bees to one point off the Championship play-off places.

    The one blot on the evening for Dean Smith's side was the knee injury suffered by midfielder Lewis Macleod.

    The final whistle goes at Loftus Road to boos from the remaining home fans.

    Brentford seal a deserved victory to end a four-match winless run in the Championship.

    QPR are still coming forward, but Brentford are dealing with it.

    Bees centre-back John Egan cuts the ball out again from what was a threatening cross.

  8. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Konstantin Kerschbaumer has two chances to put the game beyond Rangers.

    First the Austrian midfielder blasts over following a counter-attack, then he has a shot deflected behind off R's centre-back Nedum Onuoha.

    Loftus Road is emptying.

  9. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Brentford centre-back John Egan makes a crucial interception to stop Tjaronn Chery from getting a shot away.

    Moments later Sebastian Polter heads goalwards, but straight at Daniel Bentley.

    A few more minutes for the Bees defence to endure.

    The Bees make their final change to eat up a few seconds.

    Konstantin Kerschbaumer replaces goalscorer Josh Clarke.

  11. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    There will be eight added mintues at Loftus Road - mainly for the injury to Lewis Macleod.

    Hope for QPR?

  12. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Another ball is floated in by QPR, looking for Idrissa Sylla.

    This one drifts over the head of the African striker, who moved to Loftus Road this summer.

  13. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    QPR put the ball into the Brentford box and it's headed away to Pawel Wszolek.

    The Polish winger decides to take it first time on the volley, but it goes well wide of goal.

    Time is running out for Rangers.

    That injury is the end of Mcleod's evening, as he is stretchered off the Loftus Road pitch following a few minutes of treatment.

    He is repalced by winger Sullay Kaikai, who is on loan from Crystal Palace.

    Macleod lasted 16 minutes after coming on for Josh McEachran. Hopefully the injury to his left knee won't be too serious.

  15. Post update

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    The game is stopped as Brentford midfielder Lewis Macleod goes down clutching his knee while challenging for the ball.

    He's had an injury-hit spell at Griffin Park since joining from Rangers and looks in a bit of pain.


    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Final change for the hosts. Ben Gladwin replaces fellow midfielder Ariel Borysiuk.

    QPR are starting to up the pressure on the Brentford defence, aiming balls in towards Sebastian Polter.

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has one substitution left up his sleeve.

    Is there anything he can do to help his side get back in this game?

    Brentford are closing in on their first win at Loftus Road in 52 years.

  18. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-2 Brentford

    QPR almost get one back straight away!

    John Egan is in the right place to nod Idrissa Sylla's goal-bound header over the bar.

    That was great positional play by the Irishman, saving a certain goal.

    By the way, QPR's Tjaronn Chery has picked up a yellow card for protests after Brentford's second goal.

    The ball did hit Josh Clarke's hand before falling to Colin to set up Sawyers - perhaps it was something Chery said about that which has got him booked.

  19. GOAL QPR 0-2 Brentford

    Romaine Sawyers

    Romaine Sawyers

    Just as I say it's been scrappy, Brentford score a corking second goal.

    Josh Clarke puts James Perch under pressure from a throw-in and the ball breaks to Maxime Colin.

    The Frenchman puts a low ball into the box and finds the unmarked Romaine Sawyers.

    Sawyers lets the ball roll across his body, opens up his left boot and side-foots into the top left-hand corner of the goal.

    Alex Smithies was nowhere near it and the Bees have a two-goal lead.

    Neither side has managed to get a decent spell of possession.
