The final whistle goes and QPR are out of the Carabao Cup after a 4-1 defeat against Brentford at Loftus Road. 

90' There will be 4 minutes of added time at the end of the second half.

83' Brentford make it 4-1 as Josh Clark beats the offside trap and finishes in the far corner.

77' Ilias Chatzitheodoridis comes off, Henrik Dalsgaard on. 

75' Rangers make a third and final change as Steven Caulker is replaced by Matt Smith. 

69' Change for QPR as Pawel Wszolek goes off and Jamie Mackie comes on

68' Ryan Woods & Justin Shaibu on, Kamohelo Mokotjo and Neal Maupay off

67' The Brentford fans behind the goal jump to their feet but Josh Clark's shot has hit the side netting. 

65' QPR with an opportunity as Wszolek hangs up an inviting cross to the unmarked Sylla but the forward heads over the Brentford bar from 10-yards. 

59' QPR create an opportunity as the ball is headed back into the area following a cleared corner but Sylla can't pounce from close range. 

50' Rangers make a change as Luke Freeman comes on to replace Ryan Manning.

47' Jack Robinson is booked for a foul on Maxime Colin.

46' Brentford get the match back underway as neither side make any changes at the break. 

It's been a dreadful first half for QPR after they found themselves 3-0 down after 32 minutes to Brentford. An Ariel Borysiuk own goal handed the Bees the lead before John Egan added a second and Neal Maupay a third. However, Darnell Furlong pulled one back for the R's on the stroke of half-time leaving QPR with it all to do in the second half. 

45' There will be two additional minutes at the end of the first half. 

43' Darnell Furlong pulls a goal back for QPR as he heads Yeni Ngbakoto's cross in from four-yards. 

40' Ryan Manning's shot from distance is spilled by Daniels and Idrissa Sylla attempts to follow-up and goes down at the feet of the Bees keeper but referee Chris Sarginson says no penalty. 

32' It's three for Brentford as Neal Maupay races onto Romaine Sawyers ball over the top and finishes with a fine shot into the corner. QPR awful in the opening 30+ minutes.

27' Ingram makes a low save from Maupay before Jozefzoon fires wide of the post from close range for the visitors.

24' QPR should have pulled a goal back as Borysiuk drops a lovely cross into the 18-yard box and Ngbakoto heads wide unmarked from 12-yards. 

23' Matt Ingram makes a smart low save down to the left hand side as Josh Clark goes close. QPR continue to be under pressure. 

19' The Bees go 2-0 up as John Egan turns in a header from close range after Andreas Bjelland heads back across goal following a corner. 

17' Alex Baptiste goes into the notebook for a foul on Josh Clark. 

16' Ball breaks to Idrissa Sylla on the edge of the box but he can't get enough on it on the turn and its comfortable for Daniels. 

15' Furlong gives away the ball and Neal Maupay picks it up before pulling wide of Ingram's post from 18-yards. Sloppy from Rangers. 

10' Brentford take the lead as the Bees break down the right before Florian Jozefzoon goes past Caulker. He puts it into the 6-yard box and Borysiuk unfortunately turns it in as he tries to prevent Clark from scoring at the back post. 

8' Good opportunity for the R's as Sylla slides in his forward partner Yeni Ngbakoto but he is in an offside position. 

5' Wszolek goes close with a header from Ngbakoto's corner but the Polish international sees his header blocked on the line. 

4' It's been all Brentford in these opening stages as they put QPR under some early pressure. Romaine Sawyers firing well over the R's bar from distance. 

Here we go, we are off and underway at Loftus Road in this second round tie that must be decided tonight. If it's level after 90 minutes there will be extra-time and penalties of the ABBA variety if required.
