Leeds United’s Saturday afternoon clash with improving Queens Park Rangers may have just got a little bit more difficult thanks to the EFL.

One of the Elland Road faithful’s best friend Peter Bankes has now been announced as the man in the middle for the game, and those with short memories will remember him from the Birmingham City tie earlier in the 2018/19 Championship campaign.

With 13 matches under his belt so far this season, he’s already brandished 68 yellow cards and two red cards, so he’s not slow to his pocket

The Birmingham defeat saw six yellows shown, but that day yellow cards wasn’t the issue and we’ve had him once before this year, as we took a comfortable victory over Derby County back in early August. Fans on social media are clearly hoping he had a bad day at the office in the last one.

A saving grace of sorts is both games have only seen four yellows shown in our direction and he’s pretty handy at handing out penalties and Lord knows we are due one of them.
