Two key Leeds first-team stars a major doubt for clash v Middlesbrough - confirmed

Leeds manager Paul Heckingbottom has said that both Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe are touch and go for the Championship clash with Middlesbrough on Friday night.

The pre-match press conference was postponed but Heckingbottom was talking to the BBC’s West Yorkshire Sport ahead of Friday night’s clash.

He also revealed that Adam Forshaw had trained all week after missing last week’s game for the birth of his daughter.

Meanwhile, striker Tyler Roberts remains sidelined as the club try to ascertain whether he will need surgery.

All this is assuming that the match goes ahead.

The weather conditions in the north of England are terrible, with more snow expected today and tomorrow.

Police released an update on Thursday morning saying that there would be a meeting between police, the club and the council before a decision was made.

However, Heckingbottom has said that his side have been training all week on an indoor pitch and are not expecting the game to be called off.
