Neither side has been able to create a clear-cut chance at Hillsborough in the first 20 minutes.
Joey Barton’s set pieces have provided the greatest threat, with one clever delivery finding Clint Hill but the defender’s header couldn’t pick out Bobby Zamora in the middle.
After QPR had monopolised the ball in the opening stages, earning 65 per cent possession, Sheffield Wednesday gradually began to look menacing.
Atdhe Nuhiu dispossessed Clint Hill and put in a dangerous ball which Nedum Onouha had to divert behind for a corner.
Wednesday keeper Damian Martinez has not been tested as yet, Karl Henry blazing a shot high and wide.
Brian Murphy is between the posts for Rangers are they are without the injured Rob Geeen.
QPR: Murphy, Onuoha, Dunne, Hill, Hughes, Hoilett, Barton, Henry, O’Neil, Morrison, Zamora.
Subs: Lennox, Carroll, Keane, Yun, Kranjcar, Maiga, Benayoun.
