Leeds United have two players nominated for the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month from August. Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez have both been nominated for the award, along with four other candidates.
Kemar Roofe bagged four goals during the month of August, all of which were crucial. The brace at Derby County was the pick. A header from an Alioski cross, followed by a spin and smash to help pick apart Derby. He then bagged the first equaliser at Swansea and a lovely individual goal to round off a 2-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Rotherham. He’s bulked up this season and has become the number one striker despite the fact Patrick Bamford arrived from Middlesbrough for £7 million.

Pablo Hernandez has also been nominated for the award after an outstanding month. He may not have been as prolific as Roofe in front of goal but he’s had a similar, if not bigger influence on games. He’s netted twice, the second equaliser at Swansea followed by the lovely curling effort at Norwich to wrap up a 0-3 win. Unfortunately he was injured towards the end of the game and couldn’t feature in the 0-0 draw at home to second placed Middlesbrough.
Also up for the award is Nick Powell of Wigan Athletic who was linked with a move to Leeds towards the end of the transfer window. Andreas Wiemann of Bristol City, Neal Maupay at Brentford and Darren Randolph who has had a great start between the sticks at Middlesbrough. Pablo Hernandez seems to be the favourite for the award from Leeds United fans but either he or Kemar Roofe could take it. Any of the others would be a surprise given the start Leeds have had but stranger things have happened.
