15.31GOAL! West Brom 1-0 QPR

A real blow for QPR – who had just got out of the relegation zone – as Graham Dorranss strikes to put West Brom ahead. A brilliant strike from 25 yards.

15.34 – QPR pushing for an equaliser though with Taarabt beginning to pick up pace. Sessegnon, meanwhile, goes close for Sunderland against Wolves.

15.38GOAL! Swansea 1-0 Blackburn Rovers

Some better news for QPR though: that man again, Sigurdsson, curls a lovely strike around Robinson to give Swansea a deserved lead.

15.44GOAL! Swansea 2-0 Blackburn Rovers

Nathan Dyer slices the ball into the net as Swansea are really making good on all  their possession now. At the minute, this looks like a potential rout.

16.03 – Half-time everywhere. And, so far, it’s going well for Wigan and Bolton.

16.07 – We’re back under way, with Blackburn at least looking like they might threaten against Swansea. That’s a marked change from the first half.

16.12 – It’s not looking promising for QPR though. They’re being completely dominated by est Brom with both Taiwo hitting the post and Jerome Thomas passing up an easy opportunity. A second goal for Roy Hodgson’s team looks inevitable.

16.18 – Wolves should have gone ahead through Sylvain Ebanks-Blake but, just like their Premier League status it seems, it goes abegging. Could you even consider Wolves as in the relegation battle at this point? They’re surely doomed?

16.21GOAL! Swansea 3-0 Blackburn Rovers

So much for Rovers’ recovery. Sigurdsson does it again, slaloming through the box and finishing easily.

16.31 – Bobby Zamora has a chance to equalise for QPR but, off form, he hits it towards the stand and off the back of Mackie.

16.32 – Yakubu gone off for Blackburn. This is gone.

16.51Full-time: Swansea 3-0 Blackburn Rovers

Have Blackburn now run out of steam? They were well beaten today and offered nothing really. Very difficult to see them staying up now.

16.52Full-time: West Brom 1-0 QPR

QPR not as bad as Blackburn and their situation isn’t as bleak but this a realknock-back after their recent surge.
