Gareth Ainsworth offers hint on why Leeds United should be confident going to QPR

On Wednesday night, Leeds United go to QPR.

Gareth Ainsworth thinks that QPR’s home form must improve quickly ahead of the arrival of Leeds United, after their wait for a first Loftus Road win of the season was extended last weekend.

Leeds are the next visitors to Loftus Road on Wednesday night, trying to rebound from a 3-1 loss at Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

QPR were defeated at home by Coventry City by a 3-1 scoreline the weekend before their encounter with the Whites. They have yet to win at home in the Championship this season and are currently in the relegation zone, having won twice this season at Middlesbrough and Cardiff City.

Ainsworth encouraged his team to be more clinical before of their match against Leeds, though he did blame the officials for their defeat to the Sky Blues.

“I’m not stupid; a 3-1 loss at home is not acceptable.” “I’m sure the haters will love this one, but there’s a bit more to it,” Ainsworth said following the loss to Coventry.

“However, we must improve at home.” We need to convert the chances we created in the first half. We were the better team in the first half, and I had no idea what was going to happen in the second half. But we need to put their keeper to the test more.

“We haven’t appeared to be threatening enough.” After all of the land and possession, we must be better than that in the future. We didn’t take chances, and that was the theme of the game, albeit the referees also played a role.”

Leeds play QPR on Wednesday before returning to Elland Road on Saturday to face Bristol City in their final game before the international break.
