Rogers out for Leeds

Mon, 16 Apr 14:23:19 2012

Leeds winger Robbie Rogers has been ruled out of the midweek clash at Blackpool.

The USA international limped out of Saturday's home win over Peterborough after just 12 minutes and is awaiting scan results which will determine the full extent of an ankle injury. It was only his second start for the club.

Danny Webber and Ramon Nunez will come into contention for a place in the starting line-up in Rogers' absence.

Midfielder Michael Brown will serve the second of his three-game ban and teenage defender Zac Thompson will sit out the last of his three-match suspension.

Luciano Becchio is pushing for a recall, but fellow striker Billy Paynter struck twice against Peterborough after making a rare start and will be unlucky to lose his place.

Leeds, in 12th place, are eight points adrift of the play-offs with three games remaining.
