QPR manager Ian Holloway said he could make changes after his struggling side lost for the fifth time in six matches.

The 3-1 defeat at home to Leeds continued a miserable run for Rangers, who were undone by Kemar Roofe’s second-half hat-trick.

Holloway said: “We’ll look at where we are and see if we can maybe freshen it up with people who haven’t had to go through this, because it looks like they’re getting down a little bit.”

Roofe scored with two close-range finishes and then sealed Leeds’ win with an injury-time strike after a bizarre mistake by keeper Felix Wiedwald led to a freak goal for Pawel Wszolek.

Wszolek played the ball into the box, where Wiedwald misjudged the bounce and was unable to prevent the ball crossing the line after it sailed over his head

“We played very well in the first half and should have been ahead but unfortunately the goal we need to give the boys the confidence they deserve is eluding us,” Holloway said.

“Then when the opposition score, as they did today, it hits us a bit, and then they got another one.

“The annoying one was the third one, because we were right back in it after the crazy goal we got.

“The lads have got to fight and fight hard. In life you have to keep on fighting and if you keep doing the right things you should get the right result in the end.

“Let’s just get on with the next game and see how we go. We live to fight another day.”
