The performance of Leeds against Rangers was quite disappointing, but Garry Monk’s side bounced back with a penalty shootout victory over Fleetwood Town away from home in the first round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday evening.

Roofe has revealed how he and his Leeds teammates reacted to the defeat to QPR - getting back to training the very next day and working hard.

“Sunday was disappointing but these things happen,” Roofe told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “We didn’t intend for it to end up like that and it did hurt us. We were back in the next day and working hard to put things right and fix it.”

Roofe joined Leeds from Oxford United on a four-year contract last month, as announced on the Championship club’s official website.

According to BBC Sport, West Yorkshire outfit Leeds had to pay a transfer fee of £3 million in order to secure the services of the 23-year-old.

The former West Bromwich Albion prospect is a versatile footballer who can play as a winger or as a striker.
