|Match Report: QPR 2-1 Leeds United - fledgling Whites fall to deserved FA Cup defeat|

I thought it was a bit odd to take Halme off at half-time, and his absence played a part in QPR's winning goal, with Davis being left to mark Bidwell. Perhaps it was because Halme was booked early on, and Bielsa thought he couldn't risk him being sent off, when he will be needed to replace Phillips against Derby.
And what was the Tom Pearce substitution all about? Did he have an injury we didn't know about? By all accounts Davis was the weaker link.

As you say, we made hard work of this win over a dispirited Bolton side. Early on I thought it was going to be comfortable, but we started getting sloppy and let them back into it, with too many moves breaking down. Baker started off looking keen to impress, but seemed to lose confidence after presenting Bolton a chance by losing the ball in a dangerous position.
We looked much better second half after he was replaced by Jack Clarke, and after the goal it looked like the only way they would score would be if we gave a goal away by fannying around at the back. This nearly happened with the penalty shout, but this week's piece of luck was that the referee waved it away. I would have been gutted if we had thrown this game away, and thanks to the clearance off the line, we didn't.

Leeds kept pressing to try to kill the game off and Clarke was showing plenty of tricks, though occasionally I thought he was trying to beat too many players and lost possession when a simple pass would do. From one breakaway he missed an easy opportunity to slip the ball to an unmarked Saiz, and the feisty Spaniard made his frustration perfectly clear when Clarke was tackled rather than playing him in.

The Kop and the HFS Loans Stand were built during the 1990s to replace stands which had to be demolished due to the Taylor report. At the time the cost of these stands caused the club considerable financial problems, which they had to alleviate by selling Brian Deane to Leeds. (I’m beginning to see a pattern here!)

It was a bit of a struggle before the red card, and without that Bristol might well have held on for a draw. The Bristol manager thought it was a harsh second yellow, but as far as I can see Brownhill came straight through the back of Roofe. Certainly a stupid challenge for a player already on a yellow card.
At least the two debutants did well apart from a few nervy moments. Halme was unlucky to be substituted when he'd done nothing wrong, but obviously Saiz had to come on to take advantage of them going down to 10 men, as from then on they posed no threat up front.
