Leeds United are still feeling the hurt from the kong term injury to star full back Luke Ayling, but now they have other issues.
The club have confirmed that Kemar Roofe will join Ayling on the long term injury list after two conflicting scans gave hope to a dwindling Leeds side, only for it to be snatched away.
Roofe, who’s calf injury was sustained in the 2-2 draw with Derby County could now be set for a longer spell on the sidelines that previously expected.
Hardly prolific in front of goal but still a very big threat in the Leeds squad, Roofe had been somewhat a saviour during his spell as Leeds’ main striker, scoring 12 goals for the club.
A spell without Roofe proves somewhat frustrating with Leeds now playing the rest of their games in preparation for a better season next year. Giving the skilful winger more time to hone in on his ability as a forward could have give Leeds a few questions to ask come summer when Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s loan deal expires.
Joining Roofe on the sidelines for tomorrow’s fixture against Sheffield Wednesday is Andy Lonergan, Liam Cooper, Conor Shaughnessy and new striker Tyler Roberts who is yet to make an appearance for the club.
With confidence suspect from Radrizanni’s radio comments and a severe lack of form, is there any light at the end of a long season?
