Kemar Roofe has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he has not sensed any negativity from Leeds United fans.

Leeds were the early pace setters in the Championship, but their form recently has dipped.

The Whites have lost their last three away matches, and they were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield Wednesday in their last outing.

That defeat for Leeds caused some fans to be critical of their players, but Roofe insists that he has never got the impression the mood around Elland Road was anything other than optimistic.

“When I’m outside of the training ground, talking to all the fans and hearing their thoughts on this season, as a player I’m disappointed that we’ve been losing but they’re not reflecting the same feeling,” Roofe said.

“They’re still upbeat and positive. They’ve got that excitement.”

Leeds will be looking to show their best form again, after having two weeks off over the international break.

Leeds have had time to rectify the problems which were exposed by Wednesday’s victory against them.

Thomas Christiansen’s side are next in action on Saturday, when they take on Reading.

If Leeds are able to pick up the three points in the contest, they could move up as high as second in the Championship table.
