    Steve Evans

    Back to back defeats for Leeds United, then, and they will have to find some way to score some goals.

    Steve Evans was clearly disappointed with the result but felt his side dominated the latter stages of the game. Leeds fans may disagree.

    You can listen to our interview with Steve Evans here. We will be back next Saturday to cover the clash with Hull.

    Thank you for joining us, and have a good evening.

  2. More from Evans

    Quote Message: You can't let Charlie Austin run away and take a free header like he did. I think we started the second half well. They were dominant after the goal but how we didn't score at the end... we didn't score because we haven't got a six yard striker. from Steve Evans Leeds United manager speaking to BBC Radio Leeds

  7. A slip down the table

    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds will drop down a place to 17th following tonight's game.

    There's a four point cushion between them and the bottom three, but it's an uphill battle from here on in.

    The Whites have 19 points from 18 games.

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    "I didn't feel we won the midfield, we didn't create enough chances, we didn't defend properly when it came to the crucial goal...

    "You have to have your best defender marking their best player, and that's Charlie Austin.

    "They had Charlie Taylor marking him - come on! This is professional football.

    "It should have been organised and you should be able to adapt to the situation."

  14. QPR 1-0 LEEDS

    Charlie Austin

    And that, I'm sad to say, is that.

    An unmarked Charlie Austin proves to be the difference between the two sides, but Leeds fell to pieces after the goal.

    Not marking players, defensive mistakes, not winning a tackle - that was, in all honesty, poor football.

    We'll have exclusive reaction from Steve Evans very shortly. Let us know your thoughts on today's performance @wysdaily

  15. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A long ball comes for Giuseppe Bellusci but he hammers it away for a goal kick.

  16. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A lovely ball from Stuart Dallas flies across the box but there's no-one there and Paul Konchesky chests it down and out for a corner.

  17. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Four minutes added time ahead.

    Sadly there's very few positives for Leeds fans to take on the long drive back up North.

  18. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    The final change for QPR as Junior Hoilett is replaced by Karl Henry.

  19. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Jordan Botaka works his way through to set up Stuart Dallas, but his shot is blocked.

    Dallas then feeds through to Chris Wood, who shoot across goal - Leeds have had good opportunities in the last few minutes, but frustration has got the better of them.

  20. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds break and Chris Wood has a shot at goal, but it flies over the bar. That gives the fans something to the cheer about, even if it is with a heavy dose of sarcasm.

  21. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds have had no corners and just one shot on goal, which was Lee Erwin's effort minutes ago. It doesn't make for happy reading or viewing.

  22. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Quote Message: Leeds look all over the place. Frustration is coming into the game. They are too wide and QPR are dominating. from Noel Whelan BBC Radio Leeds summariser and former player
    Noel WhelanBBC Radio Leeds summariser and former player
  23. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    The Leeds fans are fed up. Mirco Antenucci's substitution is greeted with boos and they are thoroughly unimpresed as Leeds again fail to win a tackle.

    Lee Erwin picks up Jordan Botaka's cross and he has a shot from range, but it's a comfortable save for Rob Green.

  24. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A change for Leeds, as Lee Erwin replaces Mirco Antenucci.

  25. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A fantastic run by Charlie Taylor sees him work his way into the box, but he's fouled. He appeals for a penalty but nothing's sticking.

    Then a second later it's back up the other end with Tjaron Cherry, who shoots high over the bar. Chants of "you don't know what you're doing" are ringing out around the ground.

  26. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Charlie Austin works the ball away from Jordan Botaka and he tears off down the pitch. He passes through to Tjaron Cherry and it's a good save from Marco Silvestri - it had to be because that was on target, all the way. 

    Leeds are being outplayed every which way they turn at the minute.

  27. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A nifty bit of footwork from Jordan Botaka gives the Leeds fans something - albeit briefly - to admire but Raniere Sandro dispossess him with some ease.

  28. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Charlie Austin has another go, this time shooting from distance. It's wide of the post but again, it's Austin and there's no-one really on him.

  29. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    There are plenty of boos from the Leeds fans as Alejandro Faurlin narrowly misses out on curling the ball into the top corner.

    Can Leeds claw their way back into it?

  30. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Thoughts from Noel

    Quote Message: QPR look like a different animal now that Austin is on. He's given the whole team a presence and a real lift on the pitch. from Noel Whelan BBC Radio Leeds summariser and former player
    Noel WhelanBBC Radio Leeds summariser and former player
  31. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    A fantastic save from Marco Silvestri keeps out another Charlie Austin chance, but that was dangerously close for Leeds.

    Charlie Taylor - who has been the stand-out - is really struggling to keep up with Austin's pace.

  32. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    And there is that change, as Alex Mowatt is replaced by Jordan Botaka.

  33. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    That's QPR's first goal in five games, which will be a relief for Neil Warnock.

    Leeds are looking a little more lively and we may be seeing a few changes soon.

  34. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Big shout for a penalty as Liam Cooper is pushed to the ground, but the referee waves for a throw-in.

    Liam Bridcutt tries to flight it in to the box but QPR clear it out.

  35. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Quote Message: I'm flabbergasted. It's a set piece, you know what’s coming and Austin is allowed a free run and bullets it past Silvestri. That is poor. from Adam Pope BBC Radio Leeds commentator

  36. QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Some really horrible confusion from Leeds over who is marking who. No-one, apparently, is marking Charlie Austin at the moment.

    Charlie Taylor eventually picks up the mantle, and he does well to head the ball out of Austin's range.

  37. BreakingGOAL AUSTIN: QPR 1-0 LEEDS

    With a massive air of inevitability, Charlie Austin scores off his first touch.

    There was nobody picking him up; he was free in the box, the ball comes sailing in and he taps it in with all the time in the world.

    That is poor from Leeds - Austin was unmarked and that was far, far too easy.

    Charlie Austin
  38. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Matt Phillips picks up a fine ball from Tjaronn Cherry but it's Charlie Taylor, again, who gets behind the ball and knocks it out of play.

  39. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    First substitution of the match as Charlie Austin and Tjaronn Cherry replace Michael Petrasso and Yun Suk-Young.

    There's a massive roar from the QPR fans as Austin jogs on. Stay positive, Leeds fans...

  40. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Leeds might be left to rue that chance; it was a lovely cross in from Mirco Antenucci and there was no-one there to tap it in.

    Paul Konchesky floats the ball in but it's easily collected by Marco Silvestri.

  41. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Giuseppe Bellusci and Stuart Dallas pull off some nice footwork before Mirco Antenucci floats it into the box.

    There's no-one there, however, and although Dallas shoots off the attempted clearance, it goes high over the bar.

  42. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    A quiet five minutes to start the second half. Only one point separates these two sides in the Championship and they're both coming off the back of a loss. Both sides need a win for the confidence boost.

  43. QPR 0-0 Leeds

  44. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    We're back underway at Loftus Road, with both sides unchanged.

    Antenucci

    Leeds fans could be forgiven for feeling more confident about away fixtures.

    Leeds have scored five goals in their last three away games, compared to five in their last 11 home fixtures.

    They looked to have broken their home hoodoo with victory over Cardiff, their first home win in nine months.

    "It’s not been a great first half.

    Raniere Sandro has been dominant but David Holiett is the one that’s lively for me

    "He's looking to penetrate the defence, get little balls through and get through to the strikers,

    "He’s the one Steve Evans will be talking about – he’s having far too much of the ball."

    Noel Whelan

    "There’s probably one paragraph’s worth of football in that first half.

    "Two teams looking and needing points has made it very scrappy and tight.

    "There's not much to talk about; it's been a bit of a battle."

  50. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    The whistle blows, and it's 0-0 at half-time.

    Scrappy, I think is the best way to describe that. There were a few chances from both sides but neither have really found any rhythm.

  51. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Marco Silvestri does really well to clear Scott Wootton's back pass with Matt Phillips bearing down on him. That could have been embarrassing.

  52. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Two minutes added time at Loftus Road.

  53. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Some good touches between Lewis Cook and Chris Wood nearly sets up Mirco Antenucci, but then QPR break again.

    Nedum Onuoha then drives forward 20 yards and smashes the ball at the goal; it falls wide but it wasn't a million miles from the goal. Nervy times for Leeds.

  54. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Lewis Cook breaks but there's an excellent bit of defending from Alejandro Faurlin to nab the ball back.

    Charlie Taylor is excellent though as he bears down on Michael Petrasso and knocks the ball out of play.

  55. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Alex Mowatt swings the ball into the penalty area but again, no-one can meet the cross.

    There's some good bits of football around the general scrappiness - can either side claim a goal before the break?

  56. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Michael Petrasso has a go at goal, but Matt Phillips accidentally blocks his fellow teammate.

    Petrasso scrambles to get the rebound but he fires it high over the bar from a tight angle.

  57. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Scott Wootton wipes out Yun Suk-Young and catches his knee, which leaves the left-back struggling. He gives the leg a bit of a shake and he's fine to carry on. 

    That's a yellow for Wootton, however. A good bit of work from Charlie Taylor stops David Holiett in his tracks.

  58. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Ooh, close again for QPR as Grant Hall rises up to meet Alejandro Faurlin's corner but tips it over the bar. He easily beat Giuseppe Bellusci in the air though.

  59. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    There's some nice moves in there, as Giuseppe Bellusci chips the ball up to find Mirco Antenucci, but nothing is falling quite right for Leeds as the linesman waves the offside flag.

    There's a bit of panic for Leeds though as Yun Suk-Young flights up the ball for Michael Petrasso, but he can't get the ball under control. It's a QPR corner.

  60. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Another good move from Michael Petrasso finds David Holiett in the box, but the ball trickles out for a goal kick.

  61. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Alejandro Faurlin takes a free-kick at the other end. Grant Hall rises but it's well collected by Marco Silvestri.

  62. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Lovely work from Chris Wood, who rounds Rob Green and the defender, before shooting at the goal.

    He skews the shot though - it goes high and wide over the bar. Some fantastic work that's been let down by the finish, but what a piece of footwork to get into that position.

  63. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Good work from Charlie Taylor on his return as he puts QPR under pressure with a well-timed tackle. 

    He's got back into the swing of things nicely despite being out of action for Leeds with glandular fever.

  65. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    There is only one point separating these two in the Championship - and it is showing on the pitch.

    Michael Petrasso offers some threat down the right but his cross deflects to the waiting Marco Silvestri.

  66. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Liam Bridcutt will need to be careful here as he's given a finger wagging for a handball.

    Matt Phillips does his best after QPR's free kick comes to nothing but his swinging delivery is punched away by Silvestri. The best way to describe it is scrappy, so far.

  67. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Stuart Dallas is fine to continue, complete with cotton buds wedged up his nose. It both looks and sounds painful.

    There's some nice work from Lewis Cook to set up Dallas, but Dallas is at an angle and his volley is well high.

  68. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    A bit of a hold up as Stuart Dallas gets some treatment for a blow to the face. 

    Not quite sure what's happened but it looks as though Dallas has ran into someone's elbow. Ouch. 

  69. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Leeds have their first free-kick courtesy of Charlie Taylor, but it's far out and comes to nothing.

    It's been a quiet opening period, with neither side really looking settled. There's a quiet word for Giuseppe Bellusci, after he leads a tackle with his elbow.

  70. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    A good area for the free-kick but Alejandro Faurlin gets too far under it and skewers it over the bar and into the Leeds fans.

  71. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Liam Bridcutt, in his first touch, has pulled off a lovely challenge to dispossess QPR - and he's been booked for it.

    QPR are given a free-kick from 20 yards out, much to the fury of the Leeds fans.

  72. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    Thoughts from Noel

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    Leeds have started off quite lively.

    There’s nothing really to trouble Leeds United so far.

  73. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    A pretty steady start for both sides, as Yun Suk-Young pulls off a nice bit of work to outpace Liam Cooper.

  74. QPR 0-0 Leeds

    We're underway at Loftus Road, with Leeds going left to right.

    They're pushing forward almost straight away. Can they put last weekend's defeat behind them?

    QPR sit just one place below the Whites, with five victories to their name.

    Charlie Austin

    QPR have struggled in recent games.

    They have yet to win this month and have been goalless in their last four outings.

    Charlie Austin is their main threat, having scored seven times in 11 league games, but he is on the bench for today's game.

    However Leeds traditionally have had the upper hand at Loftus Road - they haven't lost a fixture here since November 1994.

  81. Welcome, Liam Bridcutt

    QPR v Leeds

    Liam Bridcutt

    Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt completed his long-awaited loan signing at Elland Road this week.

    Bridcutt, who has 30 Premier League appearances to his name, will stay with the Whites until January.

    He toldBBC Radio Leeds:"I was close to going somewhere else but Steve Evans was the deciding factor.

    "He is a straight talker. Everything he said, I took on board and he's the man to be moving forward with."

    We have needed something different in that midfield.

    Bridcutt will be fired up and he'll be ready for the game. It just depends on how long he can last.

    We've been crying out for some experience. Lewis Cook has been carrying a lot on his shoulders and he needs some help and experience around him.

    He’s got that in Bridcutt.

    Steve Evans has been in typically jovial mood this week.

    His Leeds side gave away the lead twice late in the game to draw 2-2 in 2006. 

    He ripped into his players telling them they would not be around long and added "If I've upset a few people, I'm sorry - but that's life."
