Marcelo Bielsa, the boss of Leeds United, has confirmed that striker Kemar Roofe will miss the second leg of his team with Derby County.

Bielsa & # 39; s side went on that race on Elland Road with a 1-0 total lead after Roofe scored the lone goal of Saturday's first leg.

The 25-year-old picked up a problem with the calf during the win and is not ready for Wednesday's decision.

He joins Adam Forshaw on the sidelines, who had to be replaced in the first half after a hamstring injury.

Pontus Jansson is available in positive news for the Whites.

"Forshaw will not be available," said Bielsa.

"Jansson will try to work normally tomorrow and we'll see what he is like tomorrow.

"Roofe will also not be available. Kemar's problem is simpler than Adam's, but he will still not be available for Wednesday's game."

The absence of Roofe is a huge blow to Leeds, who has developed a handy talent for painting against The Rams. That absence could be compensated by the return of the suspended Patrick Bamford.
