Leeds Player Ratings: QPR 1 - Leeds 0: Oh dear, we are in trouble.

Got done by a referee again, but we can only control our performance - and our performance was not good enough.

Leeds United were once again not up to the task at hand as they lost 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers, continuing their horrendous record in London. A Nahki Wells goal, and being screwed over by a referee leading to a defeat.

Leeds had a clear penalty not given, before Nahki Wells handballed twice before scoring to give QPR a 1-0 lead at the break. Patrick Bamford then missed a second half penalty as Leeds meekly surrendered the points, they look scared.

Kalvin Phillips but the Cherry on the shit-covered cake by getting sent off for a horrendous tackle on Geoff Cameron, he will now be banned for three games, with half our midfielders injured.

Time now to look at each player and how they performed. As always you can tell me how wrong I am @mightywhitespod or @ThruItAllLUFC on twitter.

STARTING LINE-UP

Kiko Casilla - Good save to deny Amos after 15 minutes. No chance on opening goal. Distribution was fine. 6/10

Luke Ayling - Made a couple of good tackles but did struggle with Eberi Eze. Good cross early in second half for Harrison chance. Good through ball for Bamford to win the Leeds penalty. Got forward well late on but it didn’t lead to much. 5/10

Ben White - Good early tackle to get Leeds out of trouble. Solid enough throughout. 6/10

Liam Cooper - Not as assured as White. Struggled with Osayi-Samuel when he came inside. 5/10

Stuart Dallas - Yellow card to end a fairly sloppy first half. Could not deal with Osayi-Samuel and sometimes didn’t even try to and just showed him inside. Off at half-time. 4.5/10

Kalvin Phillips - Gave the ball away more than normal in the first half. Had a good shot from distance just after the hour mark. Sent off late on for a horrendous challenge, three-game ban incoming. Losing marks for making a ridiculous decision because he was frustrated. 4/10

Helder Costa - Had a decent penalty shout early on. A mixed bag between looking dangerous and making poor decisions. 5/10

Mateusz Klich - Quiet first half. Drifted out to the right a lot in the second half and put in some good crosses but remained quiet overall. 5/10

Pablo Hernandez - Gave away the free-kick that lead to the opening goal. The lack of a handball decision was the major contributor though. Better in possession first half than most of his teammates. Booked for a foul on Eze. Hit the post with a free-kick. 6/10

Jack Harrison - Very quiet first half. Had a good headed chance early in the second half but mistimed it and put it wide. 5/10

Patrick Bamford - Had a great chance one-on-one with Liam Kelly after 35 minutes but skied his chance, should do better but not a must-score chance. Won Leeds’ penalty but took a really soft penalty which was saved. Has to play 90 minutes when having an off day, I know Leeds need a striker but how Ryan Edmondson doesn’t make the bench is beyond me, a Marcelo Bielsa decision that I cannot understand. 4/10

SUBSTITUTES

Ezgjan Alioski (for Dallas, HT) - Got forward with more conviction than Dallas. 5/10

Jordan Stevens (for Klich, 87mins) - Not on long enough to score. N/A
