This live event has finished
Very creditable result for Burnley, and could have been all three points with that chance for Ings at 3-2. Burnely stay three points behind second-placed QPR.
Assou-Ekotto dithering again, Stanislas dispossessed him but his lob goes just wide of the far post. And that's full time, 3-3, what a game.
Four minutes added on.
Heaton saves from Kranjcar. This game is mad.
Junior Stanislas on for Michael Kightly on 85.
Clint Hill bundles a corner wide from close range.
Henry on for Traore for QPR on 83.
A brief comical interlude as a QPR fan invades the pitch and evades several stewards. Game back underway now.
QPR 3 Burnley 3, Maiga 79. Hoilett's initial cross was blocked by Mee but he was quickest to the loose ball and squared for Maiga to tap in.
Appeal for a penalty as the ball bounces up and hits Marney's arm. Referee waved it away, rightly so, it definitely wasn't intentional.
Maiga with an effort wide for QPR, 17 minutes left.
Ings with a massive chance to make it 4-2, broke the offside trap from Vokes' pass, cut inside but fired wide of the far post. Hope that doesn't prove costly.
Modibo Maiga on for his QPR debut in place of Johnson on 68
Ings caught Assou-Ekotto napping on the touchline and squared for Vokes to tap into the empty net on 62, to the delirium of the Burnley fans behind the goal. What a result this would be if the Clarets could hold on to this.
QPR 2 Clarets 3
14th goal of season for Vokes, 22 for Ings now after his goal in first half

Kightly crossed from the left and Vokes turns the ball in smartly with his studs from about 10 yards, after beating Dunne to the near post. Really good goal.
QPR 2 Clarets 2, Vokes 54
Spotted Alastair Campbell having a chinwag with Harry Redknapp's son Jamie at half time. Brendan Flood in the directors' box here today too.
Duff so close to heading in Trippier's free kick. Hill got the merest touch on it and Duff couldn't divert it in.
Second half underway
Kightly with a chance to level on the stroke of half time after Ings' lay-off played him in, but he took too long and the chance was gone. Half time: QPR 2 Clarets 1
Coming up to half time now, been a tough test for Burnley defensively against the firepower that QPR possess, although they'll be very frustrated to have conceded from two set pieces.
Another goal from a Kranjcar corner, Burnley couldn't clear it at the near post and it came to Dunne around the penalty spot, who volleyed it into the top corner. David Jones couldn't quite block it on the line.
QPR 2 Clarets 1, Dunne
Barton escapes a booking again. Clarets fans not happy at all about that.
Ings scored twice in the 2-0 win over QPR at Turf Moor in October. Burnley now looking to go ahead, amazing how this game has turned around.
Danny Ings scores against QPR again, a superb volley on 25 mins from Kieran Trippier's right-wing cross.
QPR 1 Clarets 1
Barton with a late challenge in Kightly. The Clarets fans can't believe that wasn't a booking, and I'd agree with them.
Jones fires an effort wide for the Clarets. It's better from Sean Dyche's men.
Burnley looking to push forward for an equaliser, but QPR still looking capable of scoring again, Traore causing problems on the left flank.
Doyle fires wide of the near post as QPR are pushing for a second goal.
Seconds earlier Heaton had tipped over a Johnson header from another corner. Now Hoilett goes close to making it 2-0, after coming on for the injured Phillips. All happening.
QPR 1 Clarets 0, Kranjcar corner and Doyle headed in. Bad start for Burnley.
The Clarets have brought a decent following here today, filling almost all of the upper tier behind the goal. Certainly not bad for the kick-off time.
Ross Wallace is back in the squad on his return from surgery, otherwise no surprises in the Clarets line-up today. Kevin Doyle starts up front for QPR after signing yesterday.
We're underway at Loftus Road.
