The Rams are unbeaten in their last three home league games against QPR (W2 D1) since losing 4-2 in October 2009.

The Hoops have failed to score in four of their last six league games against Derby, scoring exactly twice in the other two games.

Derby County have won only one of their last 10 league games (D4 L5) and drew 2-2 last time out vs Forest in Gary Rowett`s first game in charge.

Since returning to the club, Ian Holloway has won 41% of his Championship games with QPR, while previous boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink won just 28% of his matches.

QPR have won five of their last seven Championship matches (D1 L1), as many as they`d won in the previous 20.

QPR have won more points in the last seven games than any other Championship team (16).

Matej Vydra has scored two goals in his last three league games, the same total he`d bagged in his last 31 combined.

QPR’s 5-1 win vs Rotherham was their biggest margin of victory in the league since a 4-0 victory against Swansea on Boxing Day 2010.

Last time out, Yeni N’Gbakoto became the first QPR player to have a hand in three goals in a league game since Charlie Austin vs Rotherham in August 2015.

Ian Holloway is unbeaten in his last three games away to Derby as a manager (W2 D1), keeping a clean sheet on each occasion.
