Leeds boss Simon Grayson was able to take consolation from beating champions QPR twice this season after his side missed out on the play-offs.United headed to Loftus Road still harbouring slim hopes of a top-six finish.That looked even more unlikely after just 27 seconds when Heidar Helguson tapped Rangers ahead.But Max Gradel hauled Leeds level when he lobbed Radek Cerny and Ross McCormack sealed a 2-1 win with a deflected shot in the second half.However, Nottingham Forest's win at Crystal Palace means another season outside the top flight for Grayson's men."Obviously we are disappointed not to make the play-offs," said Grayson. "We have beaten the champions twice this season which is a testament to my players, but congratulations to QPR."
