Leeds fans on Twitter prepared to face the Championship without Roofe

Leeds fans have been given the worrying news of an injury to Kemar Roofe. The former Oxford United striker has been in great form for the Whites this season, however, his goals have certainly dried up since Christmas, so whilst his absence is a large one, the fans believe that they have enough in their squad to get by.

Of course, in 2019 a striker’s game isn’t all about scoring goals, but if they’re not getting them regularly enough the questions tend to be asked. Roofe has scored often enough to keep those questions away, yet despite his recent barren run no one has questioned his role in the side because of his movement and link-up play as he brings others into the attack with his clever forward-play.

Now, though, the Whites will be relying on the duo of Tyler Roberts and Patrick Bamford to provide what Roofe usually does. Roofe may not play again this season, and the prospect of going the rest of the campaign is a daunting one, however, Marcelo Bielsa has been dealing with setbacks and injuries all season and will be well prepared to get through this rough spell with those he has in reserve.

The Whites have full faith in their side as they look to get by without Roofe and there’s no doubt that Marcelo Bielsa will make something work.
