Queens Park Rangers make a winning start to their Championship season with a comfortable victory over Leeds United.

FT: QPR 3-0 Leeds

I'm confident Garry Monk didn't envisage such a chastening start to the season.

A 3-0 loss at QPR was not the ideal start to his reign as Leeds head coach, and he won't tolerate many more performances like that, I'm sure.

Post-match reaction

FT: QPR 3-0 Leeds

QPR midfielder Tjaronn Chery told Sky Sports: "It's really important to win the first game.

"We have lots of the same players from last season and some good new players too. We have a good team."

FULL-TIME: QPR 3-0 Leeds

QPR start the season with a routine 3-0 win over Leeds United, and hand new head coach Garry Monk a defeat from his first match in charge.

The home side were solid enough and were good value for their victory, but Leeds were the masters of their own downfall too.

They made a complete mess of clearing a corner for QPR's first, and then the second goal came from the penalty spot after a clumsy challenge in the box by Ronaldo Vieira. A late third added gloss to the scoreline.

Reaction to follow.

GOAL: QPR 3-0 Leeds

Sebastian Polter

The QPR fans are singing now though, as Sebastian Polter outmuscles Lewie Coyle and fires in QPR's third from a tight angle past Robert Green.

QPR 2-0 Leeds

Four minutes of added time announced over the PA system, greeted by complete silence from the crowd.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 2-0 Leeds

James Perch comes on for QPR goalscorer Tjaronn Chery, whose work is done for the day.

His second-half penalty has surely sealed three points for the hosts.

Massimo Cellino won't be happy with what he's seen from Leeds United today. It's been a low-key opening to Garry Monk's tenure as head coach.

QPR 2-0 Leeds

Wow, a big chance missed by Leeds.

Marcus Antonsson beats the offside trap and goalkeeper Alex Smithies comes flying off his line. Twenty yards out, Antonsson drags his shot wide.

One feels that was Leeds' chance to get back into this Championship game.

QPR 2-0 Leeds

It's been a fairly comfortable day for QPR. They've led from a very early stage, and have held Leeds at arms' length for much of the contest.

It's looking like a job well done by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's men.

Kemar Roofe's debut for Leeds is over, he's replaced by Hadi Sacko.

Rob Green goes the right way but Tjaronn Chery finds the corner from 12 yards and QPR lead 2-0.

That should be that.

Seconds before the penalty was awarded, Green made a wonderful stop to deny Nasser El Khayati's shot from 25 yards. No chance with the penalty, though. Clinical.

Penalty to QPR

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Ronaldo Vieira on Jordan Cousins. Clumsy. Penalty to Rangers.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Rob Green

Rob Green won't fancy watching QPR's opening goal again too often.

The Leeds goalkeeper, who left Rangers at the end of last season, flapped at a high ball and punched it straight onto his captain Sol Bamba, off whom it nestled in the back of the net.

Not the most auspicious of returns to Loftus Road for the ex-England man, and his new side have 20 minutes to find an equaliser.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Nasser El Khayati comes on for QPR, replacing teenage winger Olamide Shodipo.

Leeds' momentum has slowed slightly following a promising start to the second half.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Matt Cooper: Leeds very predictable. Lump the ball forward and hope for the best. Will be a long old season for them. QPR very comfortable.

Kyle Seedhouse: Come on Leeds get it together, shoddy defending = a bad season! Started the second half well though, get a goal in the next 10 minutes or so and we could go on to win it.

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Kemar Roofe
Rex Features

Good play from Kemar Roofe, who has had a quiet debut so far for Leeds.

The former Oxford man robs Nedum Onuoha of the ball on halfway and charges into the QPR box, where he's met by a flurry of QPR defenders. Maybe that's the spark he needs.

Matt Grimes is off, replaced by new signing Marcus Antonsson. Some support for Leeds striker Chris Wood up top for the visitors.

YELLOW CARD

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Leeds midfielder Matt Grimes goes into the book for a lunging tackle on Olamide Shodipo. That's the visitors' first yellow card of the match.

Much better from visitors Leeds in the second period at Loftus Road. They've had a lot of the ball in the QPR half, without testing goalkeeper Alex Smithies.

Unsurprisingly, Rangers replace the yellow-carded Ben Gladwin with Jordan Cousins, who joined the club from Charlton in the summer and makes his debut here.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Ben Gladwin has to be careful. Booked in the first half, the QPR midfielder goes straight through Ronaldo Vieira and concedes a foul.

He's walking an ever-thinning tightrope.

KICK-OFF

QPR, leading 1-0, get the second half under way.

HT: QPR 1-0 Leeds

Tony Fernandes

The two teams will be on their way back out for the second period in west London shortly.

The two clubs' respective owners - Tony Fernandes and Massimo Cellino - shared a friendly exchange before kick-off. I'm sure Fernandes is still smiling, given the half-time scoreline at Loftus Road.

Having looked at the replays again, it appears to be a Sol Bamba own goal that put the home side ahead.

Still to come

This is the first match of a Championship double header today.

At 16:30 BST, we'll have live text commentary of Sheffield Wednesday v Aston Villa.

Both sides hope to be challenging for promotion this season - the Owls were beaten play-off finalists last term, while relegated Villa have renewed optimism under new boss Roberto Di Matteo.

Five things you may have missed on Saturday

The first Saturday of the season provided plenty of stories, including a dream debut for Ipswich's Grant Ward and a goalscoring return for Ched Evans at Chesterfield.

Here are five things you may have missed from Saturday's EFL fixtures.

HALF-TIME: QPR 1-0 Leeds

Nedum Onuoha
Rex Features

QPR lead against Leeds at half-time, with Nedum Onouha's scrappy fourth-minute opener separating the sides.

Rangers have also hit the post twice and are good value for their one-goal advantage at the interval.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Garry Monk
Rex Features

Garry Monk, dressed in a shirt, tie and navy jumper, has a big team talk ahead of him.

It's been a disappointing first half from his Leeds side, this.

Into one minute of stoppage time.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Leeds create their best chance of the first half, during which they have been particularly tepid in attack.

QPR don't deal with a cross which finds a way through to Stuart Dallas, but the Northern Ireland international can't direct his shot on target.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Olamide Shodipo looks like he has a bit of potential.

QPR's teenage winger, who is making his EFL debut today, has put himself about and looked composed on the ball, with a trick or two as well.

He may be one to watch this season.

QPR hit the post again

QPR 1-0 Leeds

QPR striker Sebastian Polter hits the post for a second time in the first half, this time with a much more orthodox attempt.

Rangers break on the counter-attack, the big German gets the ball on his left foot and fires against the upright from about 15 yards.

YELLOW CARD

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Two QPR bookings now, as debutant Jake Bidwell sees yellow.

He gives away a cheap free-kick inside the Leeds half, and then shows his displeasure towards the referee. Can't do that any more with the new rules about dissent, I'm afraid.

QPR hit the post

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Appeals for a QPR penalty, or at least a free-kick just outside the box, as Massimo Luongo goes down under a challenge.

Nothing given. From the next attack, QPR hit the post as Ronaldo Vieira's clearance ricochets off Sebastian Polter and against the woodwork.

An escape for the visitors.

YELLOW CARD

QPR 1-0 Leeds

QPR midfielder Ben Gladwin becomes the first man to see a yellow card in this match. 

He brings down Charlie Taylor in a wide position and is booked. 

The free-kick from the left touchline is absolutely woeful from Stuart Dallas. Awful.

26. Dallas delivers towards the back post but his free-kick sails high and wide (1-0) #lufc

SUBSTITUTION

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Berardi off
Rex Features

Leeds have made an early substitution - right-back Gaetano Berardi trudges straight down the tunnel as he's replaced by Lewie Coyle.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

QPR are beginning to up the tempo slightly - they're keeping possession the better of the two sides and putting in plenty of crosses.

Leeds goalkeeper Rob Green punches one straight to Nedum Onuoha, who blazes over from the edge of the box.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

It's been a fairly scratchy opening from both sides - glimpses of quality, but no real fluidity to their play.

QPR will be marginally happier, helped by that early goal of course.

QPR 1-0 Leeds

Well that certainly wasn't the start that Leeds or new head coach Garry Monk wanted. 

You hope and plan all summer, then you go behind to a soft goal inside four minutes of your opening game.

GOAL: QPR 1-0 Leeds

Nedum Onuoha

QPR 1-0
Rex Features

I've got no idea who the goalscorer is, but QPR lead with the scruffiest goal you will ever see.

Leeds fail to clear a set-piece and goalkeeper Robert Green punches a loose ball towards his own goal. It may have gone straight in, it may have gone in off Nedum Onuoha. We'll give it to the big defender for now.

Either way, it's 1-0 to the hosts.

4' GOAL! What a start. Caulker and Gladwin have shots blocked before Onuoha bundles the ball home (1-0) #QPRLEE cards.twitter.com/cards/16ea2j/2…
