Kemar Roofe: Looking at automatic spots

Leeds star Kemar Roofe believes automatic promotion is still a possibility even though the club’s place in the Championship play-offs is far from secure.

Garry Monk’s side are currently nine points off second-placed Brighton after being pegged back in a 1-1 draw at Fulham on Tuesday night.

But with 10 games to go, Roofe is looking up and not down: “We’ve still got a long way to go. Anything can happen and there’s a lot of teams fighting for the positions. All we can do is do our job.

“We’re still fighting for second and until it’s mathematically clear that we can’t, we’re going to keep going and try to claw our way back up. And the thing is, the pressure’s not on us. It’s on everybody else.

“We’re just trying to play with freedom and enjoy our football.”

Despite the disappointment of conceding a late equaliser at Craven Cottage, Roofe is now looking ahead to the next test against QPR on Saturday.

He added: “It’s another step closer to our end goal which is hopefully promotion. We’ll get back in and we will go again.”
