Leeds United head into tonight’s play-off semi-final second leg against Derby County at Elland Road with a one-goal lead, but they will have to make do without some important players.
On Monday, Marcelo Bielsa confirmed that Kemar Roofe, Adam Forshaw and Tyler Roberts would all miss the match with various injuries giving some tricky decisions to make ahead of the crucial clash.
But, having missed the first-leg as well as the Whites’ final match of the season, it is not news that appears to have got Tyler Roberts down too much.
Earlier on Wednesday afternoon the forward shared a video to his Instagram story, showing himself relaxing at a local restaurant and playing some cards.
Alongside the clip, he also wrote: “Today is a good day.”
Roofe scored the only goal of the first leg, finishing smartly just before the hour mark after Jack Harrison had played an inch-perfect cross into the Derby area.
The Rams applied plenty of pressure throughout the rest of the match but never looked like scoring, leaving them with plenty to do tonight.
Presumably Leeds would not have had any training today so it makes sense that the injured members are relaxing.
Roberts has been a noticeable miss for the Whites in recent weeks and will undoubtedly be cheering his side on from the stands this evening.
Bielsa seems to be quite protective of players on the cusp of being fit so it will be interesting to see if he is fit for the final should Leeds get there.
