Ian Holloway predicts QPR v Leeds United

Ian Holloway

The pundit has cast his view on Queens Park Rangers' Championship clash with Leeds.

QPR host Leeds United at Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon and former R's boss Ian Holloway is predicting a win for the west London side, according to his regular Sky Sports predictions column.

Both QPR and Leeds have struggled this season but Holloway feels the R's will prevail this weekend, with Neil Warnock remaining in the dugout following Chris Ramsey's recent sacking in the capital.

Victory for either side could send them into the top half of the Championship table but the Sky pundit and former coach can only see Warnock's men prevailing when they take on the Whites.

Holloway told Sky Sports: "Neil Warnock should be back this weekend and I think they'll be too strong for Leeds, who are coming into this on the back of a bad result at home to Rotherham."

It's hard to tell whether Holloway's confidence is based on logic or simply the fact he was worked with QPR in the past.

QPR and Leeds are separated by just one place in the Championship table and United's recent form is far superior to the west London side's.

United were poor in their last game against Rotherham United, as Neil Redfearn guided the Millers to victory over his former side. But whether Warnock can win against Leeds, also a former club for him, is another matter.
