STAGSNET`S STATISTICAL PREVIEW
17th February 2003 20:20



QPR is a team who played the Mighty Stags in their inaugural league season way back in 1931-32 and both games that season were drawn, a 2-2 at the Mill on September 26, 1931 and a 1-1 in London on February 6, 1932 (must have been at White City as QPR used this ground between 1931 and 1933). And before 1957-58, the Stags played the London outfit in all of their four seasons in the div 3 (S).
And none of the 11 league games at the Mill have been goalless. Biggest win was a 8-1 on March 15, 1965 and the biggest defeat a 1-7 on September 24, 1966, and after that defeat the writer of these lines thought that QPR would run away with the div 3 Championship with lots of goals, which they eventually did with 103 goals scored and a margin of 12 points to Middlesbrough. Incidentally, the return game in London that season was the only goal-less meeting between the two teams to date. At the Mill, only two games have produced fewer than four goals. In both cases it was Mighty Stags wins, a 1-0 on October 12, 1963 and a 2-1 on February 5, 1966. That season also produced the only up to date Stags away win at QPR, and that was a 2-1 early on in the 1965-66 season, on August 28, 1965. And in half on the games at QPR the Stags have been goalless. QPR's biggest home win was a 3-0 on October 1, 1938. The previous league games at the Mill have averaged five goals as shown in the stats below compared to about two per game at Loftus Road. Earlier this season QPR won 4-0, a scoreline that was far too high considering that the Stags also had chances and had deserved at least a consolation goal.

Played for both sides: Ian Baraclough.
