  • The Leeds Game

    QPR could be without the services of defender Grant Hall for the upcoming trip to Elland Road, as reported by West London Sport.

    The 27-year old missed all of last season with a serious knee injury and sat out the recent 3-2 defeat against Hull City at Loftus Road.

    He ‘s now set to face a late fitness test to determined his availability for the clash with Marcelo Biela’s side, who will be looking to extend their lead in the automatic promotion spots.

    Steve McClaren’s side are eleventh in the current table with just one win in five. They had surged up the division after a strong October, but recent form hasn’t been as exciting with the defeat against Hull a particular low point.

    Hall has made just four appearances this season, two in the Championship, and could be considered something of a fringe player. Other than the doubts over his fitness, McClaren has no concerns for the visit of the Whites.

    He spoke to the club’s official website this morning about their need to ‘find their resilience’ after struggling in recent weeks.

    “We will need a lot of belief and a lot of courage – that’s what all teams need when you go to a place like Elland Road if you are to get a result there. We need to get back to that resilience and organisation that we showed against the likes of Aston Villa to get clean sheets,” he said.

    The Verdict

    It’s going to be such a tough outing for Rangers, they’re out of form and Leeds are strong despite their injury crisis.

    Marcelo Bielsa could only dream of the clean bill of health handed to McClaren, but despite their ravaging injury crisis they’re still sure to be red hot favourites against the Hoops.

      The latest ticket update issued by the club has stated that less than 800 tickets remain for the home areas of the ground meaning that there is a chance that Marcelo Bielsa’s side could be backed by a sell-out home crowd. The only availability is in the East Stand. The East Stand Lower has just a few tickets remaining while all other unsold tickets are in the East Stand Upper.

      Leeds United have been backed by some big crowds for their other recent weekend home matches. A crowd of 34,308 were packed inside Elland Road as The Whites took on Nottingham Forest while 34,333 watched the 2-0 home win over Bristol City.

      The biggest crowd of the season at Elland Road so far came in August when Leeds United recorded an attendance of 35,417 for the fixture against promotion rivals Middlesbrough.

        Peter Bankes has been appointed as the referee for Leeds United’s home Championship match against Queens Park Rangers this weekend.

        Bankes has already taken charge of 13 Championship matches this season, and has handed out 68 yellow cards and two red.

          Will be interesting how many Leeds fans turn up when they begin their second half slump. Our side is getting a bit stale and needs a freshen up. So would like to see Samuel for Eze. Hall being a sicknote means
          we cannot change at the back. Fearing that Hall , if he is not finished,will never be the same player again.

            I would let hall go at the end of the season when his contract expires .Good player but a shocking injury record , I think his wages would be better spent on players that actually play .

                    Hope Leeds aren't blaming us because they are not a featured game on Sky Sports this week. Must feel strange for them K.O. at 3pm on a Saturday.
