Jon Newsome has admitted that he is worried about Joe Rodon’s fitness going into Leeds United’s final two Championship games of the season.


Rodon was brilliant again at the back for Leeds in their 4-3 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Monday night.


The Welshman has missed just two league games this season, but was seen holding his calf towards the end of the game against Boro.



Daniel Farke downplayed Rodon’s injury after the match, saying it was a hit to the calf, but there are still worries over whether he will be fit for the quick turnaround.


Former Leeds star Newsome is hopeful that is nothing more than cramps but conceded that it does not seem that way at this stage.



Newsome is hopeful that Rodon finds a way to get fit and ready as Leeds approach the final two games of the regular Championship campaign.


The former White said on BBC Radio Leeds: “Joe Rodon’s determination and his leadership was there for everybody to see.



“I just hope that he is okay.


“He was holding his calf and he obviously got a bit of an issue with his calf.


“It might have been a bit of a cramp; it didn’t look that way, but we have got to cross our fingers that come Friday he is going to be fit and in that starting eleven.”


Leeds will hope Rodon is in the squad when they travel to London to take on QPR on Friday night.
