Brentford haven`t won successive league games against rivals QPR since August 1965 (a run of three wins).

QPR have lost just two of their last 10 league meetings with Brentford (W4 D4), although both defeats have come in the last three games.

The Bees have scored more goals than any other Championship team in 2017 (41 in 19 games).

No player has been involved in more Championship goals than Lasse Vibe in 2017 (16 – 12 goals, 4 assists; level with Chris Wood).

Ian Holloway has never lost an away match at Griffin Park as a manager (W4 D3), although this will be his first trip there since February 2004. One of only two occasions Holloway has seen one of his sides notch six goals away from home came against Brentford in August 2000 when he was Bristol Rovers manager (a 6-2 win).

QPR have kept only two clean sheets in their last 30 league games.

QPR have lost their last five league matches in a row, all by a single-goal margin.

The R`s have won only one of their last eight away league games (D2 L5).
