    FT: QPR 3-0 Leeds

    That's it for the first game of our Championship double header. Join us again later on for the second helping - Sheffield Wednesday v Aston Villa at 16:30 BST.

    Hope you can join us then.

    I'll leave you with Adam Williams' match report as QPR started the Championship campaign with a comfortable home success over Leeds United.

    FT: QPR 3-0 Leeds

    I'm confident Garry Monk didn't envisage such a chastening start to the season.

    A 3-0 loss at QPR was not the ideal start to his reign as Leeds head coach, and he won't tolerate many more performances like that, I'm sure.

  3. Post-match reaction

    FT: QPR 3-0 Leeds

    QPR midfielder Tjaronn Chery told Sky Sports: "It's really important to win the first game.

    "We have lots of the same players from last season and some good new players too. We have a good team."

  4. FULL-TIME: QPR 3-0 Leeds

    QPR start the season with a routine 3-0 win over Leeds United, and hand new head coach Garry Monk a defeat from his first match in charge.

    The home side were solid enough and were good value for their victory, but Leeds were the masters of their own downfall too.

    They made a complete mess of clearing a corner for QPR's first, and then the second goal came from the penalty spot after a clumsy challenge in the box by Ronaldo Vieira. A late third added gloss to the scoreline.

    Reaction to follow.

  5. GOAL: QPR 3-0 Leeds

    Sebastian Polter

    The QPR fans are singing now though, as Sebastian Polter outmuscles Lewie Coyle and fires in QPR's third from a tight angle past Robert Green.

  6. Post update

    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    Four minutes of added time announced over the PA system, greeted by complete silence from the crowd.


    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    James Perch comes on for QPR goalscorer Tjaronn Chery, whose work is done for the day.

    His second-half penalty has surely sealed three points for the hosts.

  8. Post update

    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    Massimo Cellino

    Massimo Cellino won't be happy with what he's seen from Leeds United today. It's been a low-key opening to Garry Monk's tenure as head coach.

  9. Post update

    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    Wow, a big chance missed by Leeds.

    Marcus Antonsson beats the offside trap and goalkeeper Alex Smithies comes flying off his line. Twenty yards out, Antonsson drags his shot wide.

    One feels that was Leeds' chance to get back into this Championship game.

  10. Post update

    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    It's been a fairly comfortable day for QPR. They've led from a very early stage, and have held Leeds at arms' length for much of the contest.

    It's looking like a job well done by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's men.

    Bamba and Polter

    QPR 2-0 Leeds

    Kemar Roofe's debut for Leeds is over, he's replaced by Hadi Sacko.

  12. GOAL: QPR 2-0 Leeds

    Tjaronn Chery

    Tjaronn Chery

    Rob Green goes the right way but Tjaronn Chery finds the corner from 12 yards and QPR lead 2-0.

    That should be that.

    Seconds before the penalty was awarded, Green made a wonderful stop to deny Nasser El Khayati's shot from 25 yards. No chance with the penalty, though. Clinical.

  13. Penalty to QPR

    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Ronaldo Vieira on Jordan Cousins. Clumsy. Penalty to Rangers.

  14. Post update

    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Rob Green

    Rob Green won't fancy watching QPR's opening goal again too often.

    The Leeds goalkeeper, who left Rangers at the end of last season, flapped at a high ball and punched it straight onto his captain Sol Bamba, off whom it nestled in the back of the net.

    Not the most auspicious of returns to Loftus Road for the ex-England man, and his new side have 20 minutes to find an equaliser.


    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Nasser El Khayati comes on for QPR, replacing teenage winger Olamide Shodipo.

    Leeds' momentum has slowed slightly following a promising start to the second half.

    Matt Cooper: Leeds very predictable. Lump the ball forward and hope for the best. Will be a long old season for them. QPR very comfortable.

    Kyle Seedhouse: Come on Leeds get it together, shoddy defending = a bad season! Started the second half well though, get a goal in the next 10 minutes or so and we could go on to win it.

    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Kemar Roofe

    Good play from Kemar Roofe, who has had a quiet debut so far for Leeds.

    The former Oxford man robs Nedum Onuoha of the ball on halfway and charges into the QPR box, where he's met by a flurry of QPR defenders. Maybe that's the spark he needs.

    Matt Grimes is off, replaced by new signing Marcus Antonsson. Some support for Leeds striker Chris Wood up top for the visitors.


    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds midfielder Matt Grimes goes into the book for a lunging tackle on Olamide Shodipo. That's the visitors' first yellow card of the match.


    QPR 1-0 Leeds


    Much better from visitors Leeds in the second period at Loftus Road. They've had a lot of the ball in the QPR half, without testing goalkeeper Alex Smithies.

    Unsurprisingly, Rangers replace the yellow-carded Ben Gladwin with Jordan Cousins, who joined the club from Charlton in the summer and makes his debut here.

  20. Post update

    QPR 1-0 Leeds

    Ben Gladwin has to be careful. Booked in the first half, the QPR midfielder goes straight through Ronaldo Vieira and concedes a foul.

    He's walking an ever-thinning tightrope.
