Sky Sports' David Prutton has backed his former club Leeds United to come away with a victory from this afternoon's clash at Loftus Road.

Prutton, who used to play for clubs including Nottingham Forest, Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday, says QPR need to be careful of being dragged into a relegation battle.

Making his prediction, he told Sky Sports: "QPR could really do with a victory here. They've only picked up a point from their last five games and they could get dragged right into the relegation battle if they don't improve soon.

Leeds, meanwhile, would have been disappointed not to hold on and beat Aston Villa last week, but they look to have really turned a corner now and I imagine they'll be back up in or really challenging for a top-six spot soon. Away win."

Score prediction: 1-2
