“I am going to lean towards my old club and say QPR,” the former attacker said on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (broadcast from 10am, August 5, 2016) when asked for his prediction. “I think there won’t be much in it, maybe a 2-1 victory.”

Both QPR and Leeds will be aiming for a top-six finish in the Championship this season.

Rangers will fancy their chances of winning the match, as they are at home. The London outfit have a decent squad, but they need to win their home games in order to have a realistic chances of clinching a playoff.

Leeds have made some good signings in the summer transfer window so far, such as Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe.

The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match against QPR in London with confidence and belief that they can at least earn a point.
