With Mark Warburton’s side having failed to pick up a single win in their previous eight matches, the prospect of playing one of the Championship’s most outstanding teams this season could have been daunting.
However, Eberechi Eze managed to put the visitors to the sword when he recorded a brace with a goal in both halves and turning things around for the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium outfit (BBC).
Whilst the youngster would likely be recognised for his match-winning performance, many of the fans had not let Leistner’s performance go under the radar, with many taking to Twitter to commend the German for his own individual efforts.
Indeed, according to the figures compiled by WhoScored, the 29-year-old was as defensive as a rock as he managed to achieve three total tackles, two interceptions, two blocked shots and a mammoth seven clearances to keep Preston North End at bay and help give QPR a much-needed clean sheet.
Having taken to Twitter to share a message after the game, supporters jumped on it to laud his performance, with many sharing their instant thoughts.
Here are some of their reactions to Leistner’s display…

Top quality performances from Toni Leistner, Grant Hall and Joe Lumley today. Might not get the plaudits, but this game was the result of their combined work. #QPR

Joe Lumley, what a man. Fantastic performance. Leistner was heroic second half. Eze and Bright levels above anyone Preston have and won us the game. #QPR
