There have been just five goals scored in the last six league meetings between these sides at the Madejski Stadium (two for Reading, three for QPR).

The Hoops have lost only once in their last nine league encounters against the Royals (W3 D5).

Reading have 16 more points after 24 league games this season (46) than they did last season (30).

QPR won their last away league game at Wolves but haven`t completed back to back wins on the road since August 2015.

These sides also met on a Thursday last season at the Madejski – Nedum Onouha scored a 90th minute winner for the Hoops.

Reading haven`t won a league match on a Thursday since December 1991, drawing three and losing five since.

Idrissa Sylla has scored a league goal every 130 minutes this season; the fifth best ratio in the Championship (min. 5 goals).
