That's it! The full-time whistle goes and it's finished all square at one apiece. City lead through Stead's opener, but Agyemang netted late on off the bench. Stay with us for match reaction from both managers.
It's fast and furious, but little in terms of quality in the closing stages. Four minutes of added time will be played.
Connolly flicks on a corner and the substitute Agyemang is on hand to bundle the ball home from close range.
Wasted again. Taarabt tries a direct shot, but he's unable to test James. It really has not been his night.
Smith tries to pick out Hulse with a through-ball, but the angle is against the substitute and he can do nothing with the ball. Time running out for the Rs.
It's a free header from the corner, but it's hooked off the line. It was Connolly's header, but McAllister was well-placed to keep out the attempt.
Again they nearly doubled their advantage. Stead turned and shot quickly, but Kenny was down well to his right to make the save.
City seem happy soaking up the pressure at one end and hitting the league leaders on the counter attack.
Gorkss is now booked for clipping the lively Rose. The on-loan winger from Spurs has been a handful.
Nearly a wonder goal for City from Elliott. He picks up Stead's inside ball and his effort from distance is pushed wide by Kenny. Superb save.
Taarabt tries his luck from distance, but it's a poor effort. He seemed to be trying to chip James, but it's another chance wasted.
QPR's passing is just letting them down at the moment. City are able to read the final ball too easily.
It should have been two nil to City. Haynes latches onto Stead's through-ball, but his effort was deflected wide for a corner.
The half-time whistle goes and it's City who lead thanks to Stead's cracker-jack blast from distance.
James does well to save and control Ephraim's cross. Great goalkeeping from the veteran shot-stopper.
Helguson wins a header and the ball falls nicely for Mackie. He turns and tries his luck from distance, but his attempt is disappointing and well off target.
Right-back Walker has another effort from out wide. It is well struck and not far from James' goal, who was at full stretch. He has been one of the visitors' best attacking players.
Half a chance for the visitors as Gorkss heads over. He did well to create space for himself, but he was unable to keep his effort down.
Derry is now booked for hauling down Rose. He is furious his team-mate gave away the ball so cheaply forcing him into the foul.
QPR continue to press forward, but City are looking comfortable and James has had little to do in goal to be fair.
Rose crosses, but his effort is cleared by the R's backline. Keith Millen will be delighted by the scoreline so far.
Walker is book for kicking the ball away after a free-kick was awarded against him for a foul on Stead.
QPR have the upper hand again, but to be fair they aren't really testing the home side for all their territorial advantage.
A fine header plays in Taarabt, but he opts to shoot instead of picking out Mackie, who is not pleased he was not found.
Taarabt shoots from distance, but it hits his own player. Rangers are determined to get back into this one as soon as possible.
Bristol City break quickly through Danny Rose down the left and he forces Kenny into a fine save from a tight angle.
Superb goal from City and it was against the run of play. Taarabt plays in a useless free-kick allowing the home side to break. Rose skips past one would-be tackler and he plays in Stead who lashes a shot home from outside the penalty area in off the crossbar.
The visitors are looking dangerous. Ephraim creates space down the left and he's looking for Helguson in the middle, but no one is on the end of his low cross.
Rangers break away at the other end and while Mackie controls in the penalty area his slow shot rolls wide of the far post.
There are a lot of Spurs and ex-Spurs players on show here this evening. City have their first attempt as Caulker's header is collected by Kenny.
Walker is again free down the right. However, he opts against crosses and tries an audacious shot from an acute angle. James was happy to watch the ball bounce wide.
Stead fizzes in a low cross and while it is collected by striker partner Haynes he is unable to really control the ball and test Kenny.
On-loan Kyle Walker's cross is poor, but it nearly causes James a problem as it floats just over his goal.
Taarabt goes for goal, but James is happy watching the effort float over his crossbar. Half a chance, but wasted by QPR.
However, all the focus here is on The Robins' clash with leaders QPR. City will be eager to move out of the drop zone while the visitors will be keen to extend their lead over Cardiff.
We're close to kick-off here at Ashton Gate, but the huge news elsewhere is that Portsmouth are on the brink of closing down. Astonishing news really. Whether they can be saved or not remains a big talking point and how the league will be affected if they do go out of business? Let's hope for the sake of English football Pompey stay afloat.
