Leeds United vs QPR: Stat Preview

Once again Andrew Dalton looks at some pre-match stats this time for our game against QPR.

Lone Rangers:

Did you know that since Leeds returned to the top flight, QPR have only won twice in ten attempts at Elland Road. One in season 90-91 when Roy Wegerle scored one of the best goals seen by an opposing player in many a year, and the other in 95-96 when Danny Dichio scored two and John Pemberton saw red in a 3-1 defeat; days after Leeds defeated Monaco 3-0. Our record at home to QPR since 90-91 is as follows:

Season 90-91 Lost 2-3

Season 91-92 Won 2-0

Season 92-93 Drew 1-1

Season 93-94 Drew 1-1

Season 94-95 Won 4-0

Season 95-96 lost 1-3

Season 04-05 won 6-1

Season 05-06 won 2-0

Season 06-07 drew 0-0

Season 10-11 won 2-0


If we remain unbeaten in the month of August following tomorrow's game, it will be the first time since 2009 that we have done this (games in all competitions). Back then we won seven out seven, we also did it back in 2000 when we won all 4 four games, two in the Premiership and two in the Champions League. Our full record since the year 2000 of games in August reads:

2000 - Played four won four
2001 - Played three, won two, drew one
2002 - Played four, won two, lost two
2003 - Played four, won one, drew two and lost one

As you are well aware this is the 3rd time in seven matches this season we have appeared live on TV, this is not a record however. Back in Season 2011-12 three of our first five games were shown live on SKY Sports, our opening day defeat at Southampton, our 1st round league cup tie at home to Bradford and our 2-2 draw away at West Ham United. Later on in the season I will be back with some stats on how many times we have been shown on the box each season since 1990-91, Sky one for the ZDS anyone??
