The 25-year-old was dismissed after collecting two yellow cards in the 1-0 win over Burnley last time out and will now serve a one-match ban.

His presence will be missed at Elland Road although his absence provides an opportunity for a fresh face to prove their worth, with Joe Allen or Andrea Orlandi likely to start.

Otherwise, manager Brendan Rodgers has no new injury concerns.

Winger Nathan Dyer should be okay despite a foot problem and will come up against former Swan Fede Bessone at left-back following his summer switch from the Liberty Stadium to Yorkshire.

Craig Beattie (calf), Angel Rangel (thigh), Ferrie Bodde (knee) and Gorka Pintado (shoulder) remain on the sidelines, along with midfielder Tom Butler (thigh) who has this week been ruled out until the new year.
