CHARLIE Taylor is Leeds United's only absentee for this weekend's Championship clash against Cardiff City - with Kemar Roofe's scan after a rib injury giving the 24-year-old the all clear.

Roofe became injured during United's 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers last mid-week and missed Sunday's clash at Huddersfield Town as a result.

But the Whites attacker has since undergone a scan which came back clear, leaving Taylor as United's only absentee for Saturday afternoon's Elland Road clash with Cardiff.

Left back Taylor injured his Achilles in the Elland Road league fixture against Brentford on December 17 but head coach Garry Monk envisages that the defender will return to training just week.

"It's just Charlie," said Monk, asked about any injuries ahead of Saturday's clash with Cardiff.

"Everyone else is fully fit which is good as it's important that we have a squad that is fit with options because in the games we need to be able to pick the right ones to help us to win games.

"Charlie is the only one left and we are very, very hopeful that he's out at the end of next week back on the pitches which will be good to see.

"Everyone else is fully fit."

Explaining the situation with Roofe, Monk revealed: "He missed out with a rib injury after the Blackburn game so he had a scan which was clear.

"He's been back in training this week so he's available for the weekend."
