In fact none of the top 4 have managed to find a way to score at Loftus Road.
Swansea`s away form against mid table teams this season is:
Won 0 Drawn 4 and lost 2 Goals For 3 Goals Against 7
Rangers at home: 25 Yellow - Ledesma, Helgusson, Delaney, Leigertwood (3)
Red - Leigertwood
Swansea away: 26 Yellow - Bodde (5), Britton (4)
Red - Monk
Given the well documented problems Rangers have in finding the net, and Swansea`s away form this game has 0-0 written all over it. However, I wouldn`t write off Rangers chances of getting a late, late winner.
