Championship high-flyers Leeds United could be without top scorer Kemar Roofe for a prolonged period amid concerns over his knee.
Roofe suffered an injury during Leeds’ 2-1 win over Swansea City on Wednesday night and there are concerns that he has done damage to his knee.
The striker did manage to play a full 90 minutes in the victory but has since been pictured in a leg brace over the weekend, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.
Injuries are mounting for Marcelo Bielsa though, and the injury could see Patrick Bamford up top as a No.9 with Tyler Roberts or Izzy Brown playing as a No.10.
Roofe has been in fine form this season, netting 14 goals in the Championship so far, and a recent report suggested that the Whites are keen on getting the former Oxford man to extend his stay at Elland Road and help them continue their push towards a return to the Premier League.
The 26-year-old missed six matches with a calf strain in September and October, while Rob Price – the club’s head of medicine and performance – apparently “told the YEP a fortnight ago that the physio department at Thorp Arch had already dealt with 45 separate injuries”.
