Osman Kakay plays in Emirates FA Cup win over Leeds United.

Sierra Leone defender Osman Kakay played for Queens Park Rangers as they beat Leeds to reach the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday.

Goals from Aramide Oteh and Jake Bidwell gave the home team a hard-fought 2-1 victory over fellow Championship side Leeds United at Loftus Road.

Kakay, 21, who last month signed a contract extension played for full 90 minutes after manager Steve McClaren made five changes to his side that played 2-2 against Aston Villa.

The right-back Kakay had a good game. Showed guile in his defending and was very comfortable adding width to the attack.

It was Kakay’s seventh appearances for Queens Park Rangers and, remarkably their first third-round victory without the need for a replay since 1996.

Aramide Oteh put QPR in front from the spot after Jake Bidwell was fouled.

Aapo Halme equalised only two minutes later, tapping home from close range before Bidwell scored the winner with 15 to full time.

Bidwell header sends Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship league leaders out. QPR will now take part in the FA Cup fourth round for the first time since 2013.
