This season has been incredible so far for Leeds United fans. The club have won three and drawn one of their four Championship games and they’re up there as one of the bookies’ favourites for promotion. So far, a lot of that is down to the form of Kemar Roofe, who scored again in the 2-2 draw against Swansea last night.

That goal against Swansea just five minutes from halftime proved vital as the Whites went on to draw 2-2 against Graham Potter’s Swansea and it’s the first time that Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds has come out of a competitive fixture without a win. If the cub can keep Roofe in the form he’s in now, though, they won’t be coming out of many games without all three points and the focus will now be on Norwich as they travel to Carrow Road on Saturday.
Roofe is currently tied at the top of the Championships goalscoring tables with Andreas Weimann and Jay Rodriguez on four goals and he’ll be hoping he can put a few more past Norwich on Saturday to put him at the top of the scoring charts on his own. At the end of the day, Bielsa and Roofe would both put three points before individual goals and whilst they’re still winning it’s nice for the ex-Oxford City man to be scoring but when things get tough later in the season they may need to rely on the form of the 25-year-old more heavily.

The Whites will be keen to keep winning and keep Roofe on the scoresheet for as long as they can and getting a result against Norwich on Saturday will be the next step.
