Confirmed: QPR and Leeds United line-ups

Queens Park Rangers manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Here is how Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United will line up this weekend:

QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

QPR starting XI: Smithies, Bidwell, Hall, Onuoha, Chery, Gladwin, Polter, Henry, Luongo, Caulker, Shodipo

QPR subs: Ingram, Lynch, Cousins, Washington, Perch, Ipekawa, El Khayati

Leeds starting XI: Green, Berardi, Bamba, Bartley, Taylor, Diagouraga, Vieira, Grimes, Dallas, Roofe, Wood

Leeds subs: Turnbull, Coyle, Cooper, Phillips, Mowatt, Sakho, Antonsson

Queens Park Rangers welcome Leeds United to Loftus Road this afternoon for the respective clubs opening Championship game of the new campaign.

The two sides, who will both be hoping for promotion this season, watched Norwich City lay down an early marker as they hammered Blackburn Rovers 4-1 on Saturday, moving to the top of the table as a result, and now it will be up to the hopeful challengers to follow suit.

Swansea City Manager Garry Monk

QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will know the pressure will be on if he does not get off to a good start, while Leeds boss Garry Monk has been tasked with taking the Whites back to the top flight after far too long away.

Both sides have significantly strengthened this summer and many of those players are on show today.

The one major absence for QPR is recent signing Ariel Borysiuk who is unavailable due to a recently sustained ankle injury, while Leeds have a full squad to choose from.
