LATEST UPDATE : QPR boss issues reality reminder as he discusses his Leeds United excitement

Leeds United will face QPR at Loftus Road this evening.
Marti Cifuentes used the chance to remind his players that QPR are not yet safe from relegation. The west London outfit is now 18th in the Championship table, but they are only four points above the relegation zone.

Of course, it would take a significant turnaround for the Hoops to slide into the bottom three over the remaining two weekends of the season, but mathematically, it remains a possibility coming into tonight’s clash with Leeds United at Loftus Road.

As a result, the hosts will be doing everything they can to cross the finish line and secure a victory that will have ramifications not just at the bottom of the table, but also at the top, given what is at stake for Leeds United.
The Whites travel to the city in second place, one point ahead of Ipswich Town, who still have a game in hand, and they know a win would significantly strengthen their automatic promotion ambitions. Leeds’ fate is not entirely in their own hands, with Ipswich’s aforementioned game complicated matters, but after defeating Middlesbrough 4-3 on Monday night, they will travel with confidence.

He went on to say, “Playing against big teams with experienced managers is always a challenge, but we are looking forward to it.” Leeds is a talented team that requires players to perform at their peak.We understand that if we want to get three points, we must deliver a strong performance.”

It’s fair to say that QPR has had a difficult season, with the club spending much of it in the Championship’s bottom three. Manager Gareth Ainsworth was replaced by Cifuentes, formerly of Hammarby IF and Aalborg BK began to gain traction at the end of October and have maintained it in recent months. Since the turn of the year, the Hoops have won eight games, pulling out of the relegation zone in February and hoping to continue their progress. They defeated Leicester City in March and will be confident of grabbing another major scalp this evening against the Whites.
