Leeds fans on Twitter are downbeat after it was confirmed that Kemar Roofe will miss the game against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Spirits were already low around the Yorkshire club following back-to-back losses last week that has left their chances of automatic promotion slim at best.
Now the club have been handed a further blow as their top scorer has been ruled out of one of the biggest matches of the Whites’ season.
Roofe has netted 14 times for United so far this campaign and will be a big miss against the in-form Midlands outfit, who have won ten successive Championship fixtures.
Leeds’ game against Villa truly is their last roll of the dice as a loss against Dean Smith’s side would confirm their place in the play-offs at the end of the season, barring a miracle.
Marcelo Bielsa has utilised Patrick Bamford as his preferred striking option in recent weeks and he is likely to start against Villa this weekend.
Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying on Twitter…
I’m losing the will

That’s a real blow imo. No alternative to Bamford who has been awful imo.
