LEEDS UNITED'S third round FA Cup clash at Queens Park Rangers has been moved to a 2pm kick-off on Sunday, January 6 for "overseas broadcast."

The all-Championship third round tie appeared as one of the more uninspiring fixtures of the round with both sides avoiding Premier League clubs and also non-league minnows but that has not stopped yet another Whites games being moved for TV coverage.

Leeds also take on QPR in the Championship at Elland Road this Saturday with United then making the return trip to Loftus Road for the reverse league clash on Saturday, February 16.

Asked for his thoughts on what the third round draw had presented Leeds at Thursday's pre-match press conference, Whites midfielder Adam Forshaw smiled: "It's okay!

"I wouldn't have minded something a little bit different, we play a lot of Championship games but it will be a good tie."
