Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez might miss the trip to the Riverside Stadium tomorrow, at least if the match isn’t called off because of snow and ice on the roads.

Paul Heckingbottom said that the two of them may not be risked with the number of fixtures coming up and the desire to not unnecessarily risk them. Roofe probably wouldn’t be a starter anyway, and with Gjanni Alioski and Stuart Dallas having good games against Brentford, and with Samu Saiz back, the club isn’t as reliant on Hernandez to drive the play forward.

So will the club miss them? Pablo can still ignite a match coming on a substitute, and Roofe seems to often play better as a sub, but as long as the the Leeds players play the way they are supposed to, there are better options available to start and see off the match.

On to the links.
