Football Insider analyses three talking points from Leeds’ 2-1 away victory against Rotherham in the Championship.
Kemar Roofe suits number 10 role
Kemar Roofe was used as an attacking midfielder against Rotherham and proved his qualities in the number 10 position.
The 23-year-old has been used predominately as a winger since move to Elland Road in the summer, but put in one of his best performances on Saturday.
He looked far more comfortable playing in the middle than cutting inside from the wing, something that manager Garry Monk could look to exploit
Roofe assisted his team-mate Souleymane Doukara for the second goal after a neat turn into space in the middle of the park.
The attacker will still want to add more goals to his game following 25 goals in 49 appearances for Oxford last season.
Chris Wood has golden touch
Leeds forward Chris Wood endured a fairly quiet afternoon against Rotherham, but took his big chance calmly to open the scoring.
The 24-year-old gladly latched on to a Charlie Taylor cross and showed huge composure to score his 12th goal of the season in just 21 appearances.
The Whites moved up to fifth in the Championship table and are occupying a play-off spot.
Garry Monk’s side will need a 20-goal striker if they want promotion this season and appear to have one in Wood.
His performance against Rotherham showed that he can steer the club to the play-offs this season.
Charlie Taylor continues to impress
Leeds defender Charlie Taylor reminded people why he has been linked with a move away from Elland Road.
The 23-year-old gave a fantastic performance against Rotherham and showed off his fantastic desire to get forward.
Newscastle and West Brom have been credited with an interest in Taylor and he was Leeds’ standout player on Saturday.
The left-back played a starring role in the opening goal after dribbling past the opposite full-back and delivered a number of good crosses for his team-mate.
In other Leeds news, Roofe has posted a Twitter message about a Manchester United attacker.
