MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head
• Queens Park Rangers did the league double over Ipswich when they were last in the same division in 2010/11, with a 3-0 win at Portman Road, and 2-0 triumph at Loftus Road.
• The Suffolk club are looking for a fifth win from eight Championship visits to the west London club.
• It's 16 years since Rangers last failed to score in a home league game against the Tractor Boys.
Queens Park Rangers
• A 2-1 home win over Sheffield Wednesday and 1-1 away draw against Huddersfield, has already given Queens Park Rangers their best start to a league season since the promotion winning campaign of 2010/11, when they remained unbeaten for the first 19.
• All their league goals this term have been scored in the seven minutes before half-time.
• The Hoops could win successive home league games for the first time since May 2012, and if so they will have equalled their total number of home victories in the Premier League last season.
• If selected, former Fulham forward Andy Johnson will be making his 300th career league start.
Ipswich Town
• The Tractor Boys effectively got their season up and running with last Saturday's 3-0 home win over Millwall, and are now looking for their first back-to-back victories since the end of March.

There is no reason for Mick McCarthy to change the team that beat Millwall 3-0 last week.

That means keeper Scott Loach will be making his 200th career league appearance.

Best hope for a goal

Match Prediction:

Hate to say it but can't see us doing better than a draw, although in reality I'm expecting a 2-1 loss.
