'Steal a cab but don't get caught' – Leeds fans urge Heckingbottom to axe mainstay v Bristol City
Leeds have a huge game at home to Bristol City on Saturday and fans have taken to twitter to urge their new manager to axe Kemar Roofe.
Roofe has played in the last 17 straight Championship games, and has scored eight league goals this season in 28 games.
However, fans have not been impressed with him in recent weeks and want Paul Heckingbottom to bench him for the game on Sunday.
Roofe has been cleared to play after a head injury but one fan said that he’d been hoping he would have been ruled out.
Leeds are currently adrift of the play-off places in 11th place, eight points behind Bristol City.
Fans are aware that only a win will give them an outside chance of making the top six by the end of the season, and are adamant that dropping Roofe is a step in the right direction.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Leeds fans ahead of the 4.30pm kick-off on Sunday:
No Roofe then please.

So are just not good enough for this league. Cooper and Roofe are just 2

Hopefully there'll be a few changes tomorrow. Roofe, Alioski and O'Kane need benching.

Drop Roofe and Alioski, get Hernandez and Dallas in, start Ekbuan and Lasogga together up top together and attack them from the off. They are a great side and will score tonnes if we stand off #lufc

Is it only me hoping Roofe and O’Kane steal a cab but don’t get caught?

Not Roofe. Had enough of him. Goes missing, weak, indecisive, gives away needless free kicks

I’d take grot or sacko over roofe! And at the moment I’d take both over roofe and alioski!
