Leeds duo both started big game against Liverpool.

Leeds United star Kemar Roofe has asked fans to help lift his 'curse' after he came narrowly close to breaking his goalscoring duck.

Roofe netted 25 goals in all competitions for Oxford United last season but is yet to net for Leeds since his big summer move.

Last night against Liverpool he came agonisingly close, hitting the post with a superb curling effort.

Roofe's strike came with the score at 0-0 at Anfield, and on such fine margins games can turn.

Leeds went on to lose the EFL Cup quarter final 2-0, with Hadi Sacko also culpable of missing chances.

Teammate Eunan O'Kane also sent a message to supporters after the game, but did not address the injury which forced him off in the first half.

The midfielder paid tribute to the club's supporters, claiming he had never heard anything like the terrific chanting they game the team throughout the game.
