QUEENS Park Rangers earned a valuable share of the spoils away at promotion chasing Leeds United – and with a little more luck could have claimed all three points.

A usually expansive and creative Leeds United side were nullified expertly by a resolute Rangers rearguard with Grant Hall in particular an imperious figure in front of the visiting back four.

Conor Washington saw a useful chance thwarted by former QPR ‘keeper Rob Green in his 600 career appearance – on this occasion the Leeds custodian was not in as charitable a mood as he was on the opening day.

By comparison Alex Smithies was a relative spectator with neither Chris Wood nor his team-mates able to muster a shot on target despite having the lion’s share of possession.

High-flying Leeds were brought back down to earth by a QPR side brimming with commitment but also displaying a creative side to their game that could have, and perhaps should have, resulted in all three points.

It’s a marker of where Ian Holloway has dragged his side from – even during the poorer form of his tenure – that they could come to a side entrenched in the playoffs and be disappointed not to leave with all three points.
