History of the Queens Park Rangers v Crystal Palace fixture

Crystal Palace travel to take on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Monday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Q.P.R. was almost five years ago, in December 2000, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Division One match.
