Daniel Farke's 'Leeds United DNA' comments will be music to the ears of Whites faithful

Daniel Farke says Leeds United's DNA is to "attack games" and wants his players to be "brave" on the ball at Queens Park Rangers tomorrow night. The Whites travel to the capital looking to record back-to-back away wins to boost their automatic promotion aspirations.

With two matches remaining, Farke's men are currently second in the Championship, having played a game more than Ipswich Town. The United boss told the media: "It’s always important to be ourselves on the pitch. You have to be brave and stick to your beliefs.

"QPR play as a side not like a team normally in this position fighting relegation. They are a really good possession side and spend lots of time on their build-up.

"They are not easy to press them; You have to make sure you’re dominant and you have to be brave. We have to play with a compact setup in their half. We have to be brave to be successful.

"There are some necessities, for example against Middlesbrough, to play more pragmatic and grind out a result. Our DNA is to attack games; this is what we want to do."

Farke hopes striker Patrick Bamford (knee) will be passed fit to play at Loftus Road. Defensive duo Sam Byram and Joe Rodon are expected to be involved after proving their fitness but Daniel James is definitely out.

"QPR are in a situation (where) they have more or less confirmed they’ll stay in the league but theoretically could still be in danger," said Farke. "One more point would be beneficial for them.

"They play this game in a good mood and can play with confidence. They are a brave side anyway. Not a typical side fighting relegation sitting deep and waiting for set pieces; they have some creative and technical players. We expect a tough task."
