Queens Park Rangers’ FA Cup triumph over League One Portsmouth has meant the English Football League have been forced to reschedule Leeds United’s trip to London.

The Whites were eliminated from the oldest national football competition in the world on January 6 by QPR, but the Loftus Road outfit were unable to get one over Portsmouth without a replay.

Beating the League One promotion hopefuls on Tuesday night, however, has meant United’s return to London has been postponed.

Marcelo Bielsa’s squad were set to travel to Loftus Road on Saturday 16th, but the tie will now be played on Tuesday, February 26.

It means, though, that the Whites will have to play three games in a week following a ten-day break, with Bolton traveling to Elland Road on February 23 and West Bromwich Albion making the same trip on March 1.

Had the Queens Park Rangers tie taken place on the original date, Bielsa’s men would still have been forced to play a tightly congested run of fixtures, as the Bolton clash comes ten days after Swansea City visit Yorkshire.
