Leeds United now have four players suspended as ill-discipline continues to cause them on field problems.

With Samu Saiz and Eunan O`Kane already suspended, they will now be joined by Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips on the sidelines.

Cooper received a straight red card in the defeat to Millwall whilst Phillips was booked late in the game, his tenth yellow card of the season and he will now be sidelined under the totting-up system.

Leeds captain Cooper was shown his second red card of the season following his dismissal at Cardiff City earlier in the season and he will now serve a four-match suspension.

Phillips will now serve a two-match suspension for picking up ten yellow cards this season.

All four players will miss the next two games against Hull City and Cardiff City whilst Cooper and Saiz will also miss the clashes against Sheffield United and Bristol City.

Pontus Jansson is also edging towards a two-match suspension as he picked up his eighth yellow card of the season in the defeat to Millwall, an eighth yellow card in his last fourteen games.

Leeds now have the worst disciplinary record in the Championship this season with Cooper`s red card the fifth shown to a Leeds player this season as well as Saiz red card in the FA Cup.
