Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to call on Garry Monk to start in-form attacker Kemar Roofe against Burton.
The £3million summer signing has finally begun to show the form that his price tag had promised, after starring against Wolves last week before playing an integral part in Tuesday night’s penalty shootout win against Norwich in the EFL Cup.
Roofe supplied an inch-perfect cross for Souleymane Doukara to cushion into the path of goalscorer Marcus Antonsson for Leeds’ first equaliser in normal time.
With Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas facing a race against time to be fit for Saturday, Roofe could be deployed on the left flank of Garry Monk’s starting 11.
Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to express their desire to see former Swansea boss Monk select the 23-year-old, as the Yorkshire giants look to climb up the table.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The former West Brom academy graduate believed he had finally broke his Leeds duck against Wolves during the 1-0 win last weekend, but the official goals panel decided it was an own goal from Silvio Sa Pereira.
Since his move north to Leeds, Roofe has made 17 league and cup appearances for the Yorkshire giants.
In other Leeds news, this midfielder is uncertain over his Elland Road future.
