Steve Evans has an idea how the match against QPR will be

Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United will face each other at Loftus Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told the club’s official website that his side will find it tough to win against Queens Park Rangers away from home in London on Saturday afternoon.

“It’ll be tough,” Evans told Leeds’ official website. “I went there earlier in the season with Rotherham and we deservedly lost. “

“They have a very passionate crowd behind them, so if you add the humongous travelling support from Leeds United – probably one of the biggest in the country again on Saturday – it should be a great occasion,” added the former Rotherham United manager.

“We just hope that we can give everybody connected to this fantastic football club a good start to the night like we did at Huddersfield.”

Leeds will head into the Championship clash against QPR on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Rotherham at Elland Road in the league.

The defeat to Rotherham at home left the Whites 16th in the league table with 19 points from 17 matches.

The West Yorkshire outfit are just four points above the bottom three, and the risk of getting dragged into a relegation dogfight is still there.

Meanwhile, QPR, who got relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, are 15th in the standings at the moment with 20 points from 17 games.

Rangers will head into the match against Leeds on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Middlesbrough away from home at the Riverside Stadium in the Championship.
