QPR could be without the services of defender Grant Hall for the upcoming trip to Elland Road, as reported by West London Sport.
The 27-year old missed all of last season with a serious knee injury and sat out the recent 3-2 defeat against Hull City at Loftus Road.
He ‘s now set to face a late fitness test to determined his availability for the clash with Marcelo Biela’s side, who will be looking to extend their lead in the automatic promotion spots.
Steve McClaren’s side are eleventh in the current table with just one win in five. They had surged up the division after a strong October, but recent form hasn’t been as exciting with the defeat against Hull a particular low point.
Hall has made just four appearances this season, two in the Championship, and could be considered something of a fringe player. Other than the doubts over his fitness, McClaren has no concerns for the visit of the Whites.
He spoke to the club’s official website this morning about their need to ‘find their resilience’ after struggling in recent weeks.
“We will need a lot of belief and a lot of courage – that’s what all teams need when you go to a place like Elland Road if you are to get a result there. We need to get back to that resilience and organisation that we showed against the likes of Aston Villa to get clean sheets,” he said.
It’s going to be such a tough outing for Rangers, they’re out of form and Leeds are strong despite their injury crisis.
Marcelo Bielsa could only dream of the clean bill of health handed to McClaren, but despite their ravaging injury crisis they’re still sure to be red hot favourites against the Hoops.
