Huddersfield Town have had some shockers in Shepherd’s Bush.
They head to Queens Park Rangers having won just once in 14 visits to the West London venue, and NEVER in 11 attempts the league.
That sole success was in the third round of the FA Cup in January 1999, when Wayne Allison earned a 1-0 victory.
The FA Cup also brought Town’s first competitive match at Loftus Road, in the third round of 1948-49, when the game ended goalless and Rangers, managed by former Town player Dave Mangnall, were beaten 5-0 in the replay at Leeds Road.
Were you at Town's victory over Preston?
Town’s first league game at the compact ground came towards the end of the 1967-68 Division II (now Championship) season, when they were ripped apart by Rodney Marsh and lost 3-0 in the feature game on BBC’s Match of the Day (this was before blanket coverage).
Town were promoted as Division II champions in 1969-70, but still they couldn’t win at QPR, who triumphed 4-2 to inflict one of only six defeats in 42 league games on Ian Greaves’ side.
And in 1972-73, by which time Town were back in Division II, Rangers beat them 3-1 at Loftus Road.

There was no further trip to Shepherd’s Bush until 1996-97, when – guess what – the home team clinched a 2-0 victory.
The sides met for the next six seasons running, the last two in the third tier (then called Division II) after being relegated alongside each other in 2001. The scorelines were 2-1, 1-1, 3-1, 1-1, 3-2 and 3-0.
Town’s last visit was for a Championship clash in January 2014, when QPR won 2-1 en route to promotion via the play-offs.
