Loan watch

Kyle Walker was involved in the match of the weekend in the Championship.

The defender played the full 90 minutes again for QPR but could do little as his side fell to a 2-0 defeat against Leeds United in front of almost 30,000 fans at Elland Road.

Max Gradel scored a goal in each half as Leeds moved up to second in the table.

And defeat means after going unbeaten in their opening 19 matches, QPR have suddenly lost in successive weeks.

However, they still top the table by three points with a game in hand and Kyle has now played 16 times.

Spurs team-mates Jake Livermore and Kyle Naughton were involved in Saturday's most talked about match as Ipswich played host to Leicester City in the early evening kick-off at Portman Road.

Ipswich, desperate for a win after six-straight defeats, raced into a 3-0 lead in the snow and there were fears the match might be abondoned when the teams were taken off 10 minutes into the second half.

However, the officials cleared the lines on the pitch, the match restarted and Ipswich held on for that 3-0 win. Kyle played 90 minutes for the Foxes, Jake came off the bench after 70 minutes for Ipswich.

Steven Caulker and Danny Rose both had decent efforts on goal but couldn't prevent Bristol City suffering a 2-0 loss at Hull City.

Steven swept a shot from 16 yards just over while Danny warmed the fingers of Tigers keeper Vito Mannone in the second half as a goal in each half from Jay Simpson saw the home side to the three points. John Bostock remained an unused substitute for Hull.

Steven was earlier confirmed as winner of the npower Football League Young Player of the Month.

Jon Obika didn't feature as Crystal Palace lost 3-0 at Nottingham Forest.

In League One, the matches involving David Button (Plymouth), Adam Smith (Bournemouth) and Paul Jose M'poku (Orient) were all postponed.

Meanwhile, Andros Townsend has returned to the club from his loan spell at Ipswich Town.
