Leeds United extended their winning run to three matches after beating Sheffield United 1-0 on Saturday, which provided the perfect start to December.
The Peacocks face a variety of challenges over the course of the festive period which could make or break their season, with a busy six weeks finishing with the FA Cup third round in the first weekend of 2019.
Monday night’s draw saw all 24 Championship sides and the 20 teams in the Premier League enter the competition but fans hoping for an eye-catching tie against one of the top-flight clubs or a favourable clash with a lower league team will be disappointed.
Instead, Leeds travel to Loftus Road to face fellow Championship outfit QPR and it is fair to say many fans were not keen on the fixture at all, which led to a variety of reactions on social media.
We have collected some of the responses below.
Least it won't be on t.v.

Hope we play the U23’s – more pressing matters in the league!

Send the under 23’s. Give them a good run out. Don’t make them stay overnight.

Can we just play the under 21’s and get knocked out? Knowing our luck we’ll play our first team, get another 6 injuries and then finish 17th!
