Leeds United have confirmed that their league game against QPR has been re-arranged for a later date due to QPR’s progression in the FA Cup.
This latest development won’t have come as a surprise, but one thing that has infuriated the Elland Road faithful, is the date in which the game has been rescheduled for.
The game at Loftus Road has been moved to Tuesday 26th February which means that Leeds now face the daunting prospect of having three league games in the space of just six days.
The Whites take on Bolton on a Saturday, then QPR on Tuesday and then promotion rivals, West Brom on Friday which is certainly a tough ask if they are to pick up maximum points.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will have to find a way to manage his players’ fitness levels during this time, as we’re at the stage now, where it could make or break their season.
It’s safe to say that this latest news didn’t go down too well with Leeds supporters.
