The Men in Black - Wolves v QPR

Anthony Taylor from Manchester will take charge of QPR's weekend away trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The young official joined the National List of Referees in 2005 before being placed on the Select List at the beginning of 2010/11.

An official still in the infancy of his career, Mr Taylor has had varying degrees of success at the top level as he prepares for his latest test this weekend.

He will be assisted by Darren Cann (Norfolk) and Dave Bryan (Lincolnshire) with Select List referee Mike Dean (Wirral) - the fourth official.

In three matches this campaign Mr Taylor has handed out 15 yellow cards and three reds, giving him an average of 6.00 cards per game.

Refereeing Rangers

Mr Taylor first set eyes on Queens Park Rangers when the R's travelled down to Southampton under Luigi De Canio in early 2008.

A side built on free-flowing attacking football, they were pegged back in the first minute by Darren Powell before Martin Rowlands equalised over five minutes before half time.

Patrick Agyemang continued his outstanding scoring run by hitting a well-timed brace either side of the break to kill the game as a contest, before Youssef Safri was sent off for a two-footed lunge.

Stern John bagged a consolation into injury time which made for a slightly nervy finish to the encounter, but nothing that the Rangers' defence didn't mop up adequately to secure the win.

A year later and QPR welcomed Derby to Loftus Road alongside the back-drop of Rangers trying to charge away supporters £40 for a lofty perch in the upper School End.

In a keenly-fought contest the R's were dealt the hammer blow ten minutes from time as Martin Albrechtsen bagged the opener. A bandaged Emmanuel Villa hit the second for the Rams as they continued their positive run at Loftus Road.

Mr Taylor oversaw what was Steve Gallen and Marc Bircham's finest managerial moment to date, managing to secure a point against promotion chasing West Bromwich Albion.

It could have been much more for QPR who saw themselves two goals in front courtesy of Kaspars Gorkss and a Jonas Olsson own goal - but ex-R's front-man Jerome Thomas and a last gasp Simon Cox effort saw the Baggies home with a point.
