Roofe, who can also operate as a winger, scored in Leeds’s 2-0 win against Bristol City at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
It was the 25-year-old’s eighth goal in 12 Championship appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit so far this season, according to WhoScored.
Roofe - who joined Leeds from Oxford United in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3 million - has also provided two assists, according to WhoScored.
Former Leeds defender Warnock has been impressed with the goalscoring heroics of Roofe, and has also hailed his conversion rate of eight goals scored from 12 shots on target, as stated on WhoScored.
Warnock said about Roofe on EFL show on Quest TV: “He just keeps on going from strength to strength. Leeds are such a better team when he is in it.
“His conversation rate, 12 shots on target now (eight goals scored), which is just frightening. He is just prolific at this level.”
Key figure for Leeds United
With Patrick Bamford injured, Roofe is leading the line well for Leeds and is scoring consistently.
For Leeds to finish in the top two of the Championship this season, the former West Bromwich Albion prospect will have to be on top of his form throughout the campaign.
