This question already has an answer here:
"allow for a little leeway" or "allow a little leeway", which one is a right expression?
Maybe both expression are correct?
Allow a little leeway has many more results on a Google book search than allow for a little leeway.
Since leeway can mean 'A margin of freedom or variation, as of activity, time, or expenditure; latitude,' it is used in the same manner as 'room'. In the third book above, there is also the usage should you allow room in the bolded heading on the same page. And a Google search for allow a little room gives many more results than allow for a little room.
One gets the same overwhelming numbers for allow a little time as compared to allow for a little time.
EDIT:Allows a little leeway returns 191 results in Google Books, incuding many that have a non-person as the subject (ie a lot of results with subject it and this); allows for a little leeway returns 25 results.
The question has been marked as duplicate; apparently allows and allows for follow certain rules, without regard to the noun that follows.
