For all their recent dips, dives and commiserations, Leeds United still find themselves within touching distance of Premier League promotion, and recent injury updates from Phil Hay will surely boost hopes.
One thing is for sure: Leeds will have given blood, sweat and tears if they go up this season.
Jansson is said to be making an unexpected return from injury this weekend having suffered complications in Leeds’ defeat to Sheffield United whilst Adam Forshaw, who has been absent for eight games, is also set to make his comeback (as per Yorkshire Evening Post).
Kemar Roofe is another player who has been sorely missed, since damaging his knee ligaments last month, and was expected to be side-lined between six to eight weeks, but Hay has boosted hopes suggesting that he could be available to feature in the final month of the campaign.
Indeed, Roofe’s readmission into the squad will come as very welcome news to Leeds United fans.
The former Oxford United man will surely be considered as the driving force behind Leeds’ season if they reach the Premier League. Not only has he scored a remarkable 14 goals in 26 games, more than compensating for Patrick Bamford’s lengthy absences, but he has also made a very welcome habit of scoring vital last-minute goals – snatching points away from the grasps of destitution.
Having watched Bielsa’s men struggle in front of goal recently, there is genuinely no end to the positives his return will bring – especially with injury prone Bamford burdening heavy responsibility.
Leeds United fans, how important is Kemar Roofe to your promotion hopes? Let us know in the comments below…
