Leeds to continue fine record against QPR with victory

| 18.12.2010

Leeds have a great chance of moving to within three points of top spot in the Championship if they can manage to keep up their fine recent record against QPR.

It is eight games since Leeds last tasted defeat against the current league leaders and betting odds of 6/4 are available that they take the three points this time.

Meanwhile, it was 1995 when QPR last collected a victory at Elland Road.

In QPR’s favour is that Leeds have the worst home defensive record in the division, letting in 20 goals in ten games.

QPR are 9/5 to gain their 12th league victory of the campaign, while a draw, which would be Neil Warnock’s team’s fifth in succession on their travels, is 23/10.

Swansea are another of the pursuers looking to make up ground on QPR and they will be optimistic about beating a Sheffield United team that will be lead for the first time by caretaker boss John Carver.

Although undefeated away from home since September, Swansea’s recent form has been patchy with just one victory from their past four matches.

Swansea are 13/10 to beat Sheffield United and they have won their clashes with the other four teams currently filling the bottom five places in the Championship table this season.

One of the biggest bankers in the next round of Championship fixtures should be at the City Ground as Nottingham Forest host Crystal Palace.

Forest are the only side still unbeaten at home in the Championship this season and are 4/6 to beat a Crystal Palace side that has only managed one victory all season on their travels.

Palace have suffered four straight losses away from home in the league, but are 9/2 to take maximum points from Nottingham Forest.

A £10 bet on Leeds beating QPR 2-1 would lead to a return of £80. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
