Leeds dropped points in London yet again, with The Whites missing chancea and not getting the rub of the green at the other end.

It was an open game in the first half, with Helder Costa having a penalty shout early-on having clashed with Lee Wallace, which the referee waved away.

Casilla was forced into a save by Amos before QPR opened the scoring just after the 20 minute mark. Eze’s free-kick was headed on by Ayling before hitting both of Nahki Wells’ hands before putting it into the net as easy as you like.

Wells had another chance soon after, from yet another QPR free-kick. The ball was swung in toward the penalty spot, and Wells lost his marker, but skewed his shot wide.

Bamford had a huge chance fall to him from the resulting goal-kick, as Casilla sent a long ball over the top of QPR’s defence. Bamford turned his man and was faced with an on-rushing Liam Kelly. Bamford tried to put the ball over the head of the keeper, and sent his shot into the stand.

Leeds started the second half brilliantly, with an increased pace causing all sorts of problem for QPR, Harrison coming closest from a header at the back-post. The best chance of the game soon arrived, with Bamford winning a penalty kick having been brought down by Kelly. However, his penalty was poor, and Kelly made the save.

Leeds kept the pace but couldn’t find the final ball in this one, Hernandez coming closest with his curling free-kick striking the outside of the post, with the keeper beaten.

Kalvin Phillips was given a straight red card late-on, a flying challenge clattered into QPR skipper, Geoff Cameron. Phillips will miss the next three matches.

Now, on to the next one.
