    • 21.50 FULL TIME. QPR enjoy a win in Mark Hughes's first home game thanks to Danny Gabbidon. They are through to face London rivals Chelsea in the fourth round.
    • 21.48 Ibehre threatens to get away from Luke Young and race in on goal so the Rangers defender takes one for the team and brings down the forward to earn a yellow card. The free-kick floats out of play.
    • 21.47 We will have three added minutes. QPR clinging on to a narrow lead.
    • 21.42 QPR still look far from convincing and have just a one-goal lead to protect with five minutes remaining of normal time.
    • 21.39 Nervy moment for QPR as Ferdinand is forced to come across and make a clearance as MK Dons threaten to break through the centre.
    • 21.30 GOAL! QPR 1-0 MK Dons! Danny Gabbidon produces a towering header from a Wright-Phillips corner and Chadwick is unable to keep the ball out as he sticks out his leg on the line. Relief for Rangers.
    • 21.28 What a free-kick! Buzsaky delivers a wicked, curling effort from 25 yards out and Martin does well to fling out an arm and tip it over the bar.
    • 21.24 MacDonald lays the ball off to Chadwick in the box but a QPR defender comes across to stick a foot in and the shot deflects up and off target.
    • 21.18 A great chance again for MK Dons! Gleeson fires a shot across the face of goal and MacDonald only just fails to get a decisive contact on the ball. Rangers are clinging on a bit here.
    • 21.16 A big chance for MK Dons! Adam Smith with a glorious cross from the right and Jabo Ibehre is free in the centre of the goal, eight yards out, but gets his legs in a tangle and turns the ball wide. He had to score that.
    • 21.05 Now Clint Hill produces another cross from the left and Bothroyd meets it with a decent header that forces Martin into a decent save.
    • 21.04 A half-chance for Rangers but Jamie Mackie can't get his head to a cross at the back post. Still, a decent start to the second half.
    • 21.02 KICK OFF! Back underway in the games between QPR and MK Dons, and Bolton and Macclesfield.
    • 20.59 So three of tonight's four ties are all but settled. QPR v MK Dons is very much on a knife-edge though, expect some drama at Loftus Road.
    • 20.47 HALF-TIME. QPR are being held 0-0 by MK Dons, who have had a couple of decent chances.
    • 20.44 Chance for MK Dons! Dean Bowditch leads a quick break and although he has both options left and right in a three versus three, he opts to shot and sends the ball over. A poor choice.
    • 20.43 What a chance! Wright-Phillips charges through on goal when collecting a pass through the centre of the pitch but David Martin races off his line to make a fine save. The winger should have jinked past the keeper instead of shooting.
    • 20.42 It has been a bit of a worrying first half for QPR. MacDonald should really have put MK Dons in front and Hughes won't have been impressed by what he has seen.
    • 20.35 Big chance for MK Dons! Charlie MacDonald makes a superb run to get in behind the QPR defence but has no faith in his right foot and tries to convert using the outside of his left, only to see his shot roll wide of the far post.
    • 20.31 Some dispute over whether Derry was fouling the keeper. To my mind it was as he had interlinked arms with him and was bringing him to ground.
    • 20.29 Disallowed! Steve Williams heads into his own net from QPR's corner but Shaun Derry is rightly penalised for a foul on the keeper. He was basically wrestling him to the ground.
    • 20.28 Chance for Rangers! Bothroyd slips in Shaun Wright-Phillips with a fantastic pass and the winger pulls the trigger, only to seee Chadwick slide in and help deflect the ball wide.
    • 20.20 MK Dons lose the ball on the edge of their box in a sloppy moment for the visiting defence, but Akos Buzsaky can't punish them as he fails to keep control of the ball.
    • 20.15 That Bothryod chance aside, QPR have struggled to impose themselves on the game and Luke Chadwick has tested Paddy Kenny for MK Dons. Food for thought for Hughes so far.
    • 20.13 Rangers break quickly and after being fed by Macheda on the right, Jay Bothroyd cuts inside to find space and thumps his effort over the bar. Not an awful effort, but he had a pass on.
    • 20.06 QPR, playing at home for the first time under new boss Mark Hughes, have made a bright enough start at Loftus Road but chances are few and far between at present.
    • 19.57 We are about to get going in the two fixtures involving the Premier League teams. Remember, if QPR win tonight they will face London rivals Chelsea. If Bolton can do away with Macclesfield then they will play Swansea at home, and probably lose. Just a prediction, but Swansea do have Leon 'officially better than Xavi' Britton.
    • 19.55 Joey Barton has been spotted on his phone in the crowd at Loftus Road, tweeting no doubt. Incidentally, you can follow me on Twitter if you want. Follow Tom Adams on Twitter
    • 19.38 TEAMS: QPR: Kenny, Young, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Hill, Mackie, Buzsaky, Derry, Wright-Phillips, Macheda, Bothroyd. Subs: Cerny, Orr, Hall, Campbell, Smith, Helguson, Ephraim. /// Milton Keynes Dons: Martin, Smith, Doumbe, Shaun Williams, Lewington, Gleeson, Potter, Chadwick, Bowditch, MacDonald, Ibehre.

    • 19.20 Then two Premier League teams face lower league opposition with Mark Hughes enjoying his first home game in charge of QPR when facing MK Dons, and Bolton hosting Macclesfield. Two potential upsets? We will see..
