Leeds United visit Queens Park Rangers tonight in what Daniel Farke hopes will be the club’s penultimate fixture of the 2023/24 season.

Victory at Loftus Road will turn up the heat on promotion rivals Ipswich Town, who must wait until tomorrow to play Hull City and potentially reduce the arrears between themselves and current top two Leicester City and Leeds.

Lose or draw in West London and United will have left the door open for Kieran McKenna’s side to walk through and reclaim a spot in the automatic promotion places.

There is plenty riding on tonight’s game, which will captivate audiences up and down the country as the match is being beamed live on Sky Sports. Dan James, Connor Roberts and Pascal Struijk are ruled out for the away side, while Patrick Bamford is a doubt due to a bruised knee. Joe Rodon and Sam Byram are available after picking up knocks in the 4-3 win over Middlesbrough on Monday night.

64' Yellow card for Jack Colback, kicking the ball away as Leeds were awarded a free-kick.

63' Byram off; Joseph on. Gray to right-back.

62' Chair cuts inside again, racing away from pink shirts and gets a shot away. Ball cannons off Ampadu's head and out for a corner.

58’ Andersen off; Smyth on.

51' Gray picks up the loose ball after Ampadu tackles in the middle, plays wide to Byram and receives it back on a run into the box. Low cross for Rutter turned behind for a corner. Georginio then wide of the mark from 12 yards. Off balance and falling backwards but has to hit the target.

47' Byram crosses, Georginio glances a header towards goal but it's wide. Away end responds vociferously.

No changes at half-time

46' Underway again. Leeds have a mountain to climb.

Leeds lacking urgency, control, a focal point in attack and haven't carried the same threat we've seen all season. Home side dictating the game.

45’ Two added minutes.

45' Firpo with a great ball across the six-yard box but no-one there to tap it in. Can't afford to pass those up given how few good chances Leeds have created this half.
