Leeds fans miss Allan Clarke amid current troubles

Allan Clarke turned out for Leeds United between 1969 and 1978, scoring 151 goals in 366 appearances for the Whites in all competitions.

The former striker won the First Division title, FA Cup, Fairs Cup and Charity Shield during a successful spell at the club.

An impressive goalscorer, Clarke also netted 10 times in 19 caps for England and hit the back on a regular basis during his time with Walsall, Fulham, Leicester City and Barnsley.

And with key man Kemar Roofe currently on the sidelines with an ankle injury, a number of Leeds fans wished that the team could call upon Clarke this weekend.

It seems like just yesterday that Leeds were knocked out by Derby County in the semi-finals of the Championship playoffs.
