Queens Park Rangers endured a disappointing campaign last term, managing to finish in only 12th place in the Championship table but it has to be said that there were some encouraging signs for the Hoops under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
Having had the opportunity of a full pre-season under his belt with the players, Hasselbaink will now be hopeful of guiding QPR are to a more fruitful campaign this term and although the R’s have not spent extortionate amounts in the transfer market like previous times, they have made a couple of decent signings in the form of Ariel Borysiuk, Jordan Cousins and Joel Lynch among others.
Not many are tipping QPR to earn promotion ahead of the upcoming campaign but perhaps the absence of pressure could prove to be beneficial for the London side and Hasselbaink will want his players to get off to a good start when they square off against Leeds United in the Championship opener on Sunday.

Following a number of questionable managerial decisions, the Leeds United hierarchy have finally made a sensible appointment this summer in the form of former Swansea City boss Garry Monk.
Monk is one of the most highly rated young managers in England at the moment and he has managed to bring in a number of quality players to Elland Road this summer by landing the services of Kemar Roofe, Marcus Antonsson, Pablo Hernandez and Kyle Bartley among others.
While it remains to be seen if Leeds are good enough to mount a serious promotion challenge, fans will be hopeful of a more stable campaign and Monk will want to make a good early impression in his side’s opening game against Queens Park Rangers.
Queens Park Rangers vs Leeds United Match Prediction
The two teams look very well matched ahead of the clash but Leeds have not actually managed to beat QPR in their last four encounters and the streak as well as home advantage means that the Hoops will have to be considered favourites to win the game.
