With the race for a slot in the Premier League getting heated than ever, Leeds United will be hosting side Queen Park Rangers at the Loftus Road. The match is scheduled for 18th January, with kickoff starting at 15:30 GMT.
Coach Marco Bielsa is taking advantage of the out of form title leaders West Brom who have failed to register a win in their past five matches. Leeds are also having a hard time registering wins with only one win in their past five matches.
With a point separating them from title leaders West Brom, Leeds will be looking to salvage a win to return at the top of the Championship table. However, QPR is set to give off a heated competition despite their current form.
QPR are currently 15th in the Championship with 35 points. The side is set to make a difference in the squad depth with several signings lined up for this January transfer window. Will the recruits change the tide at the club?
