Leeds are sweating on the fitness of striker Tyler Roberts after he left Nottingham Forest’s City Ground on crutches following the 2-0 defeat on Saturday.

Roberts was introduced as a 59th-minute substitute and was welcomed to the game with a no-nonsense tackle from Forest midfielder Samba Sow.

The challenge left 21-year-old limping, although he did seem to shake it off and managed to finish the game.

However, according to Leeds Live, the Wales international was seen leaving the ground on crutches.

It is understood the crutches were a precautionary move.

Nevertheless, it is a worry manager Marcelo Bielsa could do with ahead of Tuesday’s visit to Brentford.

Leeds have failed to score in their last two league outings, and will need to sharpen up in front of goal if they are to avoid having the Bees leapfrog them in the Championship table.

Bielsa’s men are currently in second spot, four points behind leaders West Brom.
