Pontus Jansson - Given only a cursory amount of trouble by Matt Smith and hardly broke sweat in the first half. Replaced at the break. 6/10

Leeds ended a hugely disappointing season with an easy victory as goals from Kemar Roofe and Kalvin Phillips comfortably brushed aside Championship visitors QPR who fell to a 2-0 defeat at Elland Road.

Minutes after QPR had survived an almighty goalmouth scramble, Roofe acrobatically fired United into a 30th-minute lead from an Adam Forshaw corner.

QPR produced next to no response and United then doubled their lead two minutes after the break through a fine low finish from Phillips who cashed in on Hoops ‘keeper Joe Lumley’s hashed clearance.

The season finale also featured a debut for 16-year-old striker Ryan Edmondson who was brought on with 16 minutes left and almost scored three minutes later when his powerful shot was deflected over the bar.
