The Hoops have won each of their last three home league games against Ipswich, all without conceding a single goal.

The Tractor Boys` last league clean sheet at Loftus Road against QPR came in August 1997, when Richard Wright kept one. They have conceded in each of their last 11 visits.

QPR have lost their last three home league games. Outside the top-flight, they last lost four home league games in a row in the Third Division South in September 1953.

Ipswich won their last away league game at Wigan – they haven`t won back to back away league games since December 2015 when they won five in a row.

The Tractor Boys have scored as many goals in their last two away games (4) as they had in their previous nine.

QPR scored more goals versus Wolves (2) than they did in their previous six games combined (1).

No QPR player attempted more passes (39) or regained possession (9) more times against Wolves than debutant Ryan Manning.
