Leeds United fans have taken to social media to react to Paul Heckingbottom’s decision to start Kemar Roofe for the clash against Sheffield United on Satruday.

The Whites confirmed their starting XI via their official Twitter account, confirming that the new manager at Elland Road had made three changes from the side thrashed at the hands of Cardiff City last week.

Gaetano Berardi, Pablo Hernandez and Ronaldo Vieira all drop out of the side to be replaced by Eunan O’Kane, Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips, after the Whites were humiliated 4-1 in front of their own fans against the Bluebirds, and travel to Bramall Lane looking to get their play off bid back on track.

It was the decision to keep faith with Roofe up front which had the Leeds faithful reacting on Twitter, with many stating that they do not feel he has done enough to warrant his place in the team.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Sheffield United sit just two points and two places above 10th placed Leeds in eighth in the Championship table, with their push for promotion having also been derailed by a series of disappointing results.

They come into the game having been comfortably beaten by league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux last week, and will be missing goalkeeper Simon Moore after he was sent off in the 3-0 defeat.
