Kemar Roofe missed Leeds United’s latest Championship clash, but is expected to be fit for the final game of the season.
A number of Leeds fans have reacted after the club posted a video on Twitter showing Kemar Roofe scoring an absolute screamer on the training ground in a clip that will evoke memories of the Patrick Bamford goal that prompted Marcelo Bielsa to run across the pitch to embrace the striker earlier in the season.
Whites fans will be looking forward to Roofe’s return from injury ahead of the final game of the regular Championship season this weekend.
Bamford is expected to be handed a two-match ban following the draw with Aston Villa on Sunday. And it seems telling that some of the Leeds supporters are not looking at the summer signing’s expected suspension as a blow on the same level as when Roofe picked up an injury during the win against Swansea in February that almost ruled him out for two months.
Roofe missed the Villa game, but is expected to be back for the trip to Ipswich Town this weekend. And judging by a clip that the club posted on social media, it appears that he is raring to go.
Leeds posted a video showing the top goalscorer scoring a fantastic goal in training. Roofe runs onto a long pass and produces an outstanding curling effort that finds the top corner.
Several fans have urged Roofe to save those kind of efforts for the play-offs. While others have joked that the striker should have kicked the ball out for a throw-in given that the mannequins also on the field are not moving – making reference to the way Villa expected the ball to knocked out of play at the weekend.
Here is the clip, as well as some of the best fan responses…

Defence looked very static to me. Was someone down injured. Better give the opposition a walk in goal— Paul Williams (@paulwilliams105) May 1, 2019
