Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has praised Leeds United on the club’s official website.

Warburton believes that Leeds are a very talented team and were more ruthless than QPR in the final third.

The former Glasgow Rangers boss made the comments following his side’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds away from home at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

 

Tyler Roberts put Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the lead in the 39th minute, and Manchester City-owned Jack Harrison added a second on 82 minutes.

Warburton told QPR’s official website: “It’s a tough place to come and Leeds are a very talented team.”

The QPR boss added: “It’s a very tight league, we know the quality they possess but so do we. I thought the best player on the pitch was Eze, I thought he was outstanding.

“But in the final third they were a little bit more ruthless and we just lacked that bit of quality to get something.”

Leeds United were better

Leeds were the better team against QPR and deservedly picked up all three points from the encounter.

The Whites are much better overall than Rangers, and there is no surprise that the West Yorkshire outfit are among the favourites for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Leeds are second in the Championship table at the moment with 28 points from 15 matches, level on points with leaders Preston North End.
