Leeds fans react on Twitter to Roofe omission v Ipswich

By Matt Farr

Leeds attacker Kemar Roofe has been dropped from Garry Monk’s starting XI to face Ipswich on Saturday – and fans on Twitter are less than impressed.

The 24-year-old made way for Stuart Dallas on the left-hand side of Leeds’ midfield, which was the one and only change to Monk’s side following Leeds’ 2-1 win over Bristol City on Tuesday.

Leeds announced their confirmed line-up on the club’s official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.


Roofe has established himself as a firm fan favourite, and the Leeds support were understandably frustrated to see him axed from the starting line-up.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Roofe has made 37 appearances for the club this season, scoring three goals and contributing six assists in all competitions.

However, the Leeds forward is currently on a six-game drought in the Championship, a fruitless streak that dates back to the win over Rotherham at the start of January.

Dallas, meanwhile, has been used more intermittently by Monk this season, but has still started 15 of his 24 league appearances. He has two goals and two assists.

A win for Leeds would see them maintain their grip on the Championship play-offs, where they are currently fifth – three points behind rivals Reading.
