Leeds United are enjoying a successful campaign under Garry Monk and closing into a top six finish in order to ensure a playoff spot. The Peacocks were eyeing a home victory against mid-table outfit Queens Park Rangers who have shown sign of improvement since the arrival of Ian Holloway replacing Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. However, Leeds United failed to take advantage of the home fixture as the game ended in a scoreless draw at Elland Road.
The Best And Worst Leeds United Players Rated From Their Draw Vs QPR
Robert Green: 8
The veteran marked his 600th league appearance memorable after pulling off a number of marvellous stops against his former employers to deny the likes of Matt Smith and Conor Washington.
Luke Ayling: 7
Was impressive with his overlap runs and crosses for the attackers. Got his tenth booking and set to miss the next two outings for his side.
Kyle Bartley: 7
Solid defensive display from the Swansea loanee as he did well to contain 6 ft 6 in Matt Smith aerially as well as physically.
Pontus Jansson: 7.5
The Swedish professional has been a great inclusion in Leeds’ backline who delivered another stellar performance with great positioning, tackling and aerial presence.
Gaetano Berardi: 7
Berardi had a decent outing as he concentrated on his defensive responsibilities and linked up well with Pedraza down the left-hand flank.
Ronaldo Vieira: 6.5
The youngster did well in midfield as he brought mobility with his tireless runs. Whipped in a few decent crosses. Was subbed off with 12 minutes remaining.
Liam Bridcutt: 6
The skipper did well in a combative role and screened his defence when required. Could not take full control of the game from midfield like he usually does.
Kemar Roofe: 5.5
The winger cut inside and broke into the box on quite a few occasions. But his efforts had no end product. Was replaced by Hadi Sacko with thirty minutes remaining.
Alfonso Pedraza: 6
The Spaniard did well from the left-hand flank as he played decent one-twos with other attackers and linked up well with the midfield. His effort from Vieira’s cross was denied by QPR custodian Alex Smithies. Was replaced by Doukara in the second half.
Pablo Hernandez: 6.5
The former Swansea man had a quiet afternoon as he did not have much supply from midfield. However, he made a few decent crosses for Chris Wood which went in vain.
Chris Wood: 5
The highest scorer of Championship had an unlikely outing as he failed to leave an impact throughout. Had a few half chances but could to capitalise.
Hadi Sacko: 6
The agile winger had an immediate impact after replacing Roofe. He troubled QPR back-line with his dribbling, pace, directness and crosses. However, he faded away lately and could not alter the scoreline. Should have hit Doukara’s 89th-minute cross-field ball before QPR hacked it away.
Souleymane Doukara: 6
Came in place of Pedraza and offered physicality up front alongside Wood. He delivered a sublime cross-field ball for Sacko in closing minutes, the Sporting Clube de Portugal loanee should have done better.
Eunan O’Kane: 6
Came in place of Vieira to inject fresh legs in midfield in order to create more chances for the attackers. He brought stability but failed to make any major contribution in Leeds’ attack.
