QPR 2-1 Leeds | First Cup third round win without replay in 22 years for R’s

Queens Park Rangers picked up their first FA Cup third round win without a replay in 22 years as they upset Leeds 2-1 at Loftus Road. A penalty from Aramide Oteh and a header from Jake Bidwell were enough to seal Rangers’ progress to the fourth round, where they will face Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

For Leeds, Aapo Halme was their solitary goal scorer, pouncing on a mistake from opposition keeper Matt Ingram.

A loss for QPR would’ve seen them earn the unwanted distinction of becoming the first team to lose 50 FA Cup third round ties.

Things could’ve been very different for the Whites had Tyler Roberts scored in the first minute. As it happended, his effort hit BOTH posts, but didn’t go in!

Marcelo Bielsa’s men will be in action again on Friday when they take on Derby County at Elland Road.
