Max Gradel's brace earned Leeds United a priceless 2-0 victory over Championship leaders QPR.

QPR showed their quality in flashes in the first half at Elland Road but Leeds were equal to their pressure took the lead after 25 minutes.

Gradel crashed home the rebound from Robert Snodgrass' cross and United's advantage remained intact moments later when Kaspars Gorkss lashed a shot wide of an exposed goal at the other end of the field.

Gradel missed a glorious chance to increase the lead before half-time, and both he and Luciano Becchio could have struck early in the second half.

But Gradel scored again at the end of a long run 19 minutes from time, putting a brilliant victory beyond doubt.
