Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe have been outstanding this season

Leeds United will be focused on ensuring consistency from here on in with the race for automatic promotion still wide open at this stage.

The Whites have arguably been the standout performers in the Championship this season, but they appear to be falling off the pace slightly as they’ve not been at their best in recent times.

Although, there’s all the more reason to be positive as they currently find themselves in a promising position in the race for promotion to the Premier League. Indeed, Marcelo Bielsa will be extremely thankful for the efforts of a couple of his players in the current campaign, as they’ve really pulled his side through at times.

Therefore, Leeds’ Premier League dream would be over without these TWO Elland Road heroes…

PABLO HERNANDEZ

Pablo Hernandez seems to be getting better with age as he continues to defy expectations at Elland Road, having established himself as one of the best players in the Championship and a fan favourite.

The Spanish wizard currently has seven goals and 11 assists to his name, as well as being the source of all things brilliant in the third for Leeds United. Hernandez’s creativity and passing ability has worked wonders so far this season, with chances constantly being created for attackers in the final third.

He really is priceless to Leeds’ promotion push.

KEMAR ROOFE

Kemar Roofe has been the go-to man for Leeds United in the final third this season, having found the back of the net 14 times in just 25 Championship appearances. The Englishman has enjoyed arguably his best season yet at Leeds United, with promotion to the Premier League only being possible because of his efforts up until this point.

His goals, pace and power have made him a joy to watch at Elland Road this season, with the ability to link up play and hold the ball up in the final third. He may only have two assists to his name at this moment in time, but he has played a big part off the ball for the Whites and is often involved in the build-up to goals.
