General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 Great last minute here - it's all end to end stuff - and Cisse almost wins it for the home side! He strikes the ball from 30 yards and the ball takes a deflection, but the ball flies just wide of a scrambling McCarthy's post. And that's it!
90' +4 A minute left and Onuoha is out on the left wing, but inexplicably curls his cross way away from any QPR player. So poor from the defender when a good delivery was desperately needed.
90' +3 A. Le Fondre gets yellow.
Hunt is away in the box after being fed well by Tabb from the left, but shanks his volley well wide. Poor from the striker there.
90' +2 Le Fondre goes down in the box and Oliver blows up - could this be the end of Mark Hughes? No - the Reading player is booked for a dive, and the home crowd breathe again.
90' +1 Cisse crosses to the back post and Zamora meets it, but can only bundle the ball straight at McCarthy. Fortunate for the visitors there, but the keeper deserves his luck today - he's been outstanding.
90' At least five minutes of injury time here - plenty of time for a goal or two. But will they arrive? Both sides are desperate for a goal, and Anton Ferdinand has to leave the pitch for treatment.
88' A. Le Fondre enters the game and replaces J. Roberts.
Two minutes to go and QPR have a corner - can Hughes' men give their manager a very, very, very early Christmas present?
86' It's Reading's turn to threaten but Leighertwood blasts wide after working himself some space outside the area.
84' N. Onuoha enters the game and replaces A. Traoré.
And now Taarabt blasts an effort at goal from 12 yards out on the right, but he puts so much into the shot it goes out for a throw-in. He's been outstanding today apart from when he actually shapes to shoot. If he'd been on form in that regard, QPR would be out of sight by now.
82' Another amazing stop from McCarthy! QPR break and Cisse finds Taarabt with a fine pass - the Moroccan skins a defender and shapes to finish from eight yards, but the keeper does brilliantly to turn his effort around the post. Brilliant save and terrible miss in equal measure.
