Drop him: Leeds fans on Twitter urge Monk to axe attacker v Wolves today
By Will Butcher
Leeds fans on Twitter want attacker Kemar Roofe to drop to the bench against Wolves on Saturday after an anonymous midweek display against Wigan.
The £3million signing from Oxford has failed to shine since his move to Yorkshire, often being overlooked by manager Garry Monk for the likes of Stuart Dallas, Hadi Sacko and Alex Mowatt.
Now fans have urged Monk to look elsewhere to replace injured Northern Ireland international Dallas, with Mowatt or Matt Grimes regarded by many as better alternative candidates.
The inclusion of either Mowatt or Grimes could see one-time Spain international Hernandez move out wide, as Leeds eye their sixth Championship win of the season against Walter Zenga’s Midlands giants.
Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to call on former Swansea boss Monk to make the bold selection decision, while one fan compared Roofe to former Leeds flop Nicky Ajose.

Kemar Roofe just doesn't seem to have it for us in the Championship like Nicky Ajose all over again

We have 3/4 mate. Doukara and Roofe to an extent. Granted Doukara is a waste of space. And Roofe is yet to justify the ££££

Sacko 'looks' like scoring but has no composure, Roofe simply isn't getting in those positions.

I thought defensively Roofe wasn't committed enough…..could learn from Sacko defensive effort….

Leeds’ number seven has made 15 appearances in all competitions this season, but has failed to find the net once.
The former West Brom youth player has made just six starts this season, after winning the League Two Player of the Year award last season after scoring a superb 26 goals from 49 games.
In other Leeds team news, Monk may have dropped a selection hint after lauding this loan star ahead of Saturday’s clash.
