Leeds attacking duo set for injury scans after win against Brentford - confirmed
Leeds United manager Paul Heckingbottom has confirmed that attackers Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe are due to undergo scans on muscles injuries following the win against Brentford on Saturday.
The Whites stormed to a 2-0 victory without Hernandez and Roofe, who were both omitted from the matchday squad.
Hernandez was substituted off in the 2-2 draw with Derby in midweek while details of Roofe’s injury appear to be fresh after many thought he was axed from the squad to take on Brentford due to poor form.
However Heckingbottom has now explained that two attackers will undergo scans.
“We’ll get them scanned and see how they are. Muscle injuries,” he said as quoted by LeedsLive.
Hernandez has made 33 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring six goals and supplying eight assists in the process.
There are fear he could leave Elland Road at the end of the season when his contract expires but the former Spain international has gone on record to say that he wants to stay.
Roofe has been ever-present for Leeds too this term, scoring 12 goals and supplying four assists in 33 outings in all competitions.
His form has been a worry as of late though as the former West Brom attacker has been unable to find a consistency.
