Leeds will be looking to prolong their unbeaten run this season to seven games as they host Harry Redknapp’s men on Saturday. However, despite being unbeaten in six games, they are still only sixth in the table as their early season assault hasn’t been as full throttle as they’d like it to be.
It looks likely now that star striker Ross McCormack is set to stay after both he and manager Brian McDermott have waved away the advances of Middlesbrough and the boss is thought to be keen on sticking with the same side that toppled Ipswich Town last week after picking up no new injury concerns.
QPR are also unbeaten in the league this season, but a midweek shock exit to Swindon Town in the Capital One Cup may have dented their confidence somewhat so soon after defeating Bolton Wanderers by a goal to nil last weekend.
Newest recruit Matt Philips is still a doubt as he recovers from a broken arm, but Redknapp is not thought to have any fresh injury concerns to contend with.
