Leeds United head coach Garry Monk will welcome Liam Bridcutt back into the squad for the trip to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Bridcutt served a one-match suspension in the 2-1 win against Bristol City in midweek. The Leeds captain is expected to replace Eunan O`Kane in the starting eleven.

Charlie Taylor remains the only absentee for Leeds through injury. The defender hasn`t played since suffering an Achilles injury in December but he is now closing in on a return and he is expected to resume training at the start of next week.

Ipswich will be without influential forward Tom Lawrence. The on loan Leicester City forward picked up his tenth yellow card of the season in the midweek draw at Brighton and Hove Albion and he will serve the first of a two-match suspension.

Captain Luke Chambers is also a doubt. Chambers suffered a rib injury when he opened the scoring in the draw at Brighton.

Ipswich could welcome back a trio of players. Christope Berra and Cole Skuse are expected to return from recent injuries and long-term absentee Tommy Smith is also expected to return to the squad after coming through a development squad game.

On loan Leeds midfielder Toumani Diagouraga is ineligible to play against his parent club.
