HT

Millwall 0, QPR 0

Half-time approaching

It's been a lively first period at The Den, but we're still without a goal as half-time looms large.

Best chance yet

Baptiste's right-wing cross finds Bidwell unmarked at the back post, before his header is pushed away by Lions goalkeeper Jordan Archer!

Side-netting

30'

Hall this time

Grant produces an important block in the penalty area, following Lee Gregory's low attempt.

29'

23'

So far, so good

Bidwell ...

This time it's Jake's turn to send another distance effort over for the R's.

Another chance

Almost

Over

01'

Kick-off

We're off and underway at The Den - where the atmosphere for this London derby really is electric. COYRS!

Here they come!

The teams emerge here in south London ...

Chief!

R's skipper Nedum Onuoha leading the team into The Den a little earlier.

Kick-off for this London derby is just over half an hour away.

Breaking QPR team news

Two changes for the R’s, then, following the 0-0 Boxing Day draw at Ipswich Town. 

Jack Robinson (ill) and Josh Scowen (suspended) miss out altogether.

So Grant Hall makes his first start in almost nine months, after being sidelined with tendonitis, while Bright Osayi-Samuel also comes back into the starting line-up.

Luke who's talking

Opposing View: Neil Harris

"The fans are looking forward to Friday – I think we’re almost sold out. That goes to show how excited we are for it. The atmosphere will certainly be electric, it’ll be hostile. I think that’s because it’s a London derby, first and foremost, against QPR. It’s two teams in a similar position and what a great one for the players to be involved in."

Ollie on Millwall

Matchday

For the final time in 2017, it's matchday!

We're off to Millwall this evening as the R's look to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches.
