Leeds fans urge Monk to start 24-year-old v Preston following recent poor form

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds fans on Twitter have urged manager Garry Monk to recall attacker Kemar Roofe against Preston on Saturday following the club’s recent poor form.

The 24-year-old summer signing has started just twice for the Yorkshire giants in their last eight league outings.

However, with just one victory coming from their last five matches fans are starting to look for a solution at this late stage of the league campaign.

Many have turned their heads towards Roofe, who was limited to a 24 minute substitute appearance against Brentford in the 2-0 defeat on Tuesday evening.

Large sections of the support on social media have lost their patience with usual number 10 Pablo Hernandez in the team and some want to see Roofe replace him, while others would like to see the former Oxford man start from the wing.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Roofe joined Leeds from League One side Oxford in the summer and has gone on to play in 43 matches in all competitions for the club this season, contributing three goals and six assists.

With just six matches remaining of the current campaign the young forward will be keen to see some more pitch time in an attempt to help the club end their 13-year wait for top-flight football.
