Some Leeds United fans are expressing their concern after Pablo Hernandez missed Friday's under-23 team fixture against Burnley.

Hernandez was tipped to make his injury comeback at Elland Road, but missed out as Adam Forshaw, Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi filled Leeds' three over-23 outfield spots.


As yet, no official word has been given as to the Spaniard's whereabouts, although the following Whites supporters fear he won't be fit to face Blackburn Rovers a week on Saturday.

Leeds' U23s took a 2-0 lead against their Lancastrian counterparts, via an own goal prompted by a Berardi header and Roofe.

But Burnley hit back through Dwight McNeil and Oliver Younger, whose equaliser arrived in the 80th minute.
