Ian Holloway’s men without a win in their last five in the league

Queens Park Rangers will look to end a run of five Championship games without a win when they host promotion hopefuls Leeds United on Saturday.

The Rs have not triumphed in the league since beating another high-flying team from Yorkshire in Sheffield United on October 31.

Since then, Ian Holloway’s side have picked up just one point from a possible 15 to slide down the table.

QPR’s cause has not been helped by a number of players being unavailable through injury or suspension.

Though midfielder Luke Freeman returns this weekend after being banned for the loss at Preston North End last weekend, the west Londoners are struggling for numbers in defence.

The likes of Nedum Onuoha, Joel Lynch, Steven Caulker and Grant Hall have all been sidelined by injury in recent weeks, and will be joined in the stands on Saturday by Alex Baptiste, who was sent off at Preston.

The shortage of defenders has left Holloway with a headache ahead of the visit of Leeds as to who to partner Jack Robinson, who himself has been filling in at centre back owing the number of injuries the Loftus Road club have suffered.

QPR will look to draw on their good recent records against the Whites, going unbeaten in their last six meetings with the Yorkshire outfit.
