Leeds United took a big step toward the Premier League on Saturday.

Kemar Roofe has paid tribute to Leeds United fans following Saturday’s 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

The Elland Road faithful acted as their team’s 12th man as Leeds took a big step toward Premier League promotion with a narrow but deserved win over Steve Bruce’s side.

Jack Harrison was the match-winner for United, who had Roofe back among the substitutes again after previously missing the last two months with a knee injury.

This was Roofe’s third cameo appearance since returning from injury earlier this month, and if he can find his goalscoring form over the next four games then it’s a huge boost for the Whites, who have a three-point cushion to third-placed Sheffield United.

He has netted 14 Championship goals for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season, and a couple more might well be enough to see the West Yorkshire side announce their top-flight return.
