Queens Park Rangers vs Leeds United: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Sky Bet Championship preview
Leeds United are set for what some might say could be the defining game of Marcelo Bielsa ‘s first season in charge when they travel to QPR on Tuesday in the Championship.


The Whites head to Loftus Road for their game in hand after their hosts’ progression in the FA Cup forced a rearranged tie.






QPR manager Steve McClaren hopes to have Luke Freeman available for the visit of Leeds.


Freeman missed the defeat to Middlesbrough on Saturday with a slight hip problem but McClaren is keen to have the midfielder back after seven straight defeats in the Championship.


Rangers are on their worst run of form since losing seven in a row in the Premier League in 1995-96, 


with their club-record run of nine straight league defeats coming in 1968-69. Long-term casualties Angel Rangel and Geoff Cameron remain sidelined.


Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa could name the same starting XI as he did for Saturday’s win over Bolton. 


Gaetano Berardi will be part of the 18-man squad as he looks to make a first appearance since October following a hamstring injury.


And fellow defender Barry Douglas will also travel to London with the team after missing the last three games. 


Midfielder Adam Forshaw has also missed the last three games with a knee problem and remains sidelined.






Nestled in third and two points off league leaders Norwich, United could vault back to the top of the pile with a win against Steve McClaren’s side.


Bielsa’s side will know however that a loss could prove to be fatal to their title ambitions as they chase a long-awaited return to the Premier League. So, how can you watch all the action?
