Leeds star Tyler Roberts to miss Brentford clash

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa confirmed that Tyler Roberts will not play in the Brentford clash after the 21-year-old suffered a heavy knock to the calf in the previous match against Nottingham Forest, as per Leeds Live.

The Wales international has been struggling to play on a regular basis this season with several injuries keeping him out of the game.

He has only made 12 league appearances this season, with three outings for him in the previous 12 Championship matches.

The Whites boss featured him as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat against Sabri Lamouchi’s side on Saturday.

He replaced Pablo Hernandez in the 59th minute of the game but the forward failed to make a difference in what became a disappointing night for Leeds.

Bielsa has now confirmed that Roberts would miss the Brentford clash following a heavy knock to the calf in the last encounter at City Ground.

“He is not going to play tomorrow. He took a strong kick. It’s incredible with this kick he continued in the match. He proved he is really engaged with the team and was brave to continue playing,” He said via Leeds Live. “There is no injury, just a big kick to the calf.”

The West Yorkshire club is currently struggling in the Championship with only just two victories in the previous 12 league matches.

They are second in the league table, sharing the same points with Fulham while 4 points behind West Brom at the top.
