Roberto Martinez suffered his first back-to-back League defeats tonight as manager of the Swans as we lost 1-0 to QPR at Loftus Road.
Leigertwood got the all-important goal on the half-hour mark, heading home from a free-kick as the Swans struggled to create any threat on the attack.
Martinez made 5 changes to his side, resting the likes of Leon Britton, Jason Scotland and Nathan Dyer who were all on the bench.
Gorka Pintado started up front, and Garry Monk was back to captain the side as Serran moved over to left back.
As expected, Martinez alternated again between Mark Gower and Tom Butler on the left wing, the latter started while Gomez moved to the right flank.
The Swans stay 9th but are 3 points behind Cardiff City who occupy 6th, and 5 points adrift of Burnley in 5th, they drew 1-1 tonight with Ipswich Town.
QPR: Radek Cerny; Fitz Hall, Mikele Leigertwood, Kaspars Gorkss, Peter Ramage, Matthew Connolly, Jordi Lopez, Matteo Alberti, Samuel Di Carmine, Hogan Ephraim, Adel Taarabt.
Subs: Damien Delaney, Rowan Vine, Liam Miller, Heidar Helguson, Antonio German.
Swans: Dorus de Vries; Angel Rangel, Garry Monk (C), Ashley Williams, Albert Serran; Joe Allen, Darren Pratley, Guillem Bauza, Jordi Gomez, Tom Butler; Gorka Pintado.
Subs: Leon Britton, Jason Scotland, Andrea Orlandi, Matty Collins, Nathan Dyer.
