Leeds United defender Darren O`Dea is now just one booking away from a two-match suspension.

O`Dea picked up his ninth yellow card of the season at Portsmouth on Saturday and he must now go until April 8th without picking up another yellow card to avoid a suspension.

Leeds have a busy period between now and April 8th with eight games to play.

The Irish international defender was the only player to serve a one-match suspension before the New Year for collecting five yellow cards and he was forced to miss the home game with Barnsley towards the end of November.

Leeds have seen six payers in total suspended this year, with five players receiving one match bans for red cards in the first four months of the season.
