It was a disappointing afternoon for QPR as Leeds secured a comfortable 3-1 victory at Loftus Road to make it six games without a victory for Ian Holloway's side.
The hosts arguably had the better of the play in the first half, creating several opportunities but failing to register a shot on target, let alone put it in the back of the net.
Leeds came out with something of a point to prove in the second half, with Roofe's opening goal sucking the confidence out of Ian Holloway's side.
Roofe doubled the lead shortly after, before a goalkeeping blunder from Felix Wiedwald gifted the Hoops a way back into the match.However any chance of another late QPR fight-back was quelled when Roofe wrapped up the points, putting the ball through the legs of Alex Smithies.
We asked our colleagues at Leeds Live to give us an unbiased opinion on QPR after the game with Leeds United.
Here's what the website's football editor Tom Marshall-Bailey had to say:
Best player - Massimo Luongo
I thought Luongo was excellent in the first half and though his influence waned after the break, he broke up Leeds attacks well and used the ball intelligently when in possession.
Some of his touches in the first half when QPR did have a good share of possession were excellent and he will be a key player in their bid to get out of their current slump.
Worst player - Conor Washington
Having earmarked him as a threat ahead of the game, Thomas Christiansen was clearly wary of the way Washington was likely to pick up the second balls from Matt Smith's knockdowns and flick-ons, but with Smith marked out of the game, it never really materialised for him.
It's not necessarily his game but I felt he didn't work hard enough to help Jake Bidwell at left-back and wasn't overly impressed with what he produced in attack either.
Manager verdict - Ian Holloway
I thought in the first half Holloway got his tactics more or less spot on and did well to nullify Leeds' primary attacking threats.
It was a really even contest before the break but the biggest disappointment for me if I was a QPR fan would be the way they failed to deal with Christiansen's decision to put Roofe down the middle at half-time.
QPR clearly didn't expect the tactical switch and Roofe ran riot as a result.
Holloway tried to deflect that by discussing his poor performance in the first half but ultimately it came down to him to prevent him from giving his two central defenders the runaround.
Thoughts on the fans
I was left slightly disappointed by the QPR fans, though in fairness there was little from the players to get them off their seats at Loftus Road.
Leeds fans were raucous and could be heard loud and clear throughout the 90 minutes, though when QPR pulled one back there was a reaction from the supporters.
Their loudest chant of the afternoon actually came when they realised Leeds fans would not be served alcohol during the half-time interval - which neatly summed up the first half as a spectacle.
They certainly weren't the worst fans Leeds will play in front of this season - but they were far from the best.
I think QPR do have enough quality to get out of the current rut they are in - and the midfield trio of Luongo, Josh Scowen and Luke Freeman will be pivotal if they are to do so.
They will need some attacking reinforcements in January though.
Holloway's side actually seemed to have an injection of energy to their attack once Idrissa Sylla came on, but he squandered their golden chance to secure a share of the spoils.
I don't see them being dragged into the relegation battle but I think they will be to settle for a mid-season finish, particularly with the current options.
