Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers go head-to-head this weekend.

Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Cardiff City and Leeds United at Cardiff City Stadium on September 26, 2017 in Cardiff, Wales.

Leeds United travel to Loftus Road this weekend to take on Queens Park Rangers in their latest Championship match.

The Whites drew 1-1 with Aston Villa last time out and find themselves eighth in the table as a result, with five points separating them from the final play-off place as things stand.

There is still plenty of football to be played and Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen will know he can get his side back into the top six with a good run of form, starting this weekend against QPR.

Saturday's hosts are 18th in the table and have plenty of reasons of their own to ensure they pick up three points against the Whites.

That will be easier said than done, with Leeds possessing some of the most impressive attackers in the division, although it will be up to Caleb Ekuban to rediscover his scoring form after drawing recent blanks despite impressing with his work rate.

A win for Leeds will give them huge confidence heading into the festive fixtures and it is well within their grasp.

With all that in mind here is how we expect Leeds to line up against QPR on Saturday:
