Match Preview: Leeds v QPR

Leeds look set to be without on loan defender Andy O'Brien when the Whites face QPR at Elland Road tomorrow.

O'Brien missed last week's win at Burnley due to a thigh problem, and Neill Collins will be on standby once again to partner Alex Bruce.

Trio Billy Paynter, Ross McCormack and Davide Somma will no doubt start on the bench, nobody can kick Becchio out of the team at present, the Argentine netted his 12th goal of the season last week against Burnley.

QPR striker Rob Hulse will be hoping to regain his starting spot at the expense of Heidar Helguson, after he missed last week's defeat to Watford through illness.

Neil Warnock has more fire power at his disposal after recalling Antonio German, the forward was on loan at Southend but will be on the bench at Elland Road.

My prediction:

QPR will be looking to put their first defeat of the season behind them, but in my opinion it is the best time to play them. Leeds are unbeaten in 9 and will be going in to the game full of confidence, thanks to last week's fantastic comeback. I expect Leeds to be tested defensively, especially if O'Brien is absent. Since his arrival Leeds have looked more solid at the back, but still concede too many goals for me.

I am going to say Leeds will win 2-1 after the comeback against Burnley, Leeds have shown they can compete with the top teams in the division.
