Leeds United

Last updated: Sun 30 December 2018 06:56
In Brief

Seven straight wins for Leeds after amazing Blackburn victory. Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas, Jamal Blackman, Conor Shaughness and Gaetano Berardi injured. Patrick Bamford also missing but Tyler Roberts could return. Samuel Saiz will not play.

Looking Back

Produced a stunning end to their game with Blackburn on Boxing Day. Trailing 2-1 entering injury time, Kemar Roofe scored twice in injury time to make it seven victories on the bounce.

Roofe has been star man of late with five goals in four games. He has scored 13 goals in just 19 appearances this term.

Looking Ahead

Big injury list this season but have just got on with it. Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas, Jamal Blackman, Conor Shaughness and Gaetano Berardi all still sidelined.

Patrick Bamford is out out again but could return by the beginning of January. Tyler Roberts though is in with a chance of returning.

Samuel Saiz will not play ahead of a January move.

Points of Interest

Eight wins, three draws and just one loss on home soil this term.

Angus MacDonald and James Weir both remain out. Ondrej Mazuch, Evando and Jon Toral all missed out on Boxing Day and are doubts again.

Points of Interest

Have four wins, three draws and five defeats away from home this season. Won 1-0 at Hull earlier in the season.
