Leeds midfielder Tyler Roberts to miss Boro clash

Tyler Roberts is a fresh injury absentee for Leeds as they prepare to host Middlesbrough.

The midfielder will miss Saturday’s match after sustaining a hamstring problem against Reading in midweek.

Adam Forshaw (hip) remains out and will not be involved against his former club but on-loan forward Eddie Nketiah (abdominal) has resumed training and could return to contention if he comes through a run out for the under-23 side on Friday.

It means that Helder Costa is likely to come into the starting line-up as Leeds look for a fifth straight Sky Bet Championship win.

Boro beat Barnsley in midweek but their first victory in 11 league games came at a cost with injuries to Anfernee Dijksteel and Paddy McNair.

Right-back Dijksteel (knee) and midfielder McNair both had to come off with injuries on Wednesday night and look set to miss out at the weekend.

Goalkeeper Darren Randolph (thigh) is unlikely to be fit until nearer Christmas while George Friend (hip), Ryan Shotton (knee), Marcus Browne (hamstring), Rudy Gestede (hamstring) and Marvin Johnson (suspended) are also absent.

The game sees former Leeds defender Jonathan Woodgate make his first return to Elland Road as a manager.
