Noel Whelan said on BBC Radio Leeds (4:55pm, November 2, 2019) that Leeds United could have scored more than the two goals they did against Queens Park Rangers.

Leeds got the better of QPR 2-0 at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Tyler Roberts put the West Yorkshire outfit in the lead in the 39th minute, and Jack Harrison - signed on loan from Premier League club Manchester City in the summer transfer window - added a second on 82 minutes.

 

Former Leeds striker Whelan was following the match, and he was impressed with the display produced by Marcelo Bielsa’s side, and believes that the home team could have won by a bigger margin.

Whelan said on BBC Radio Leeds at full time (4:55pm, November 2, 2019): “The intensity, the work rate, the commitment, 100% today, it always is, but relentless determination to keep a clean sheet, going forward some fantastic play.

"Very lucky it was only two. It should have been a lot more, to be honest with you.”
