Trio banned for Leeds

Samuel Saiz, Gaetano Berardi and Liam Cooper will all serve the last games of their various suspensions as Leeds take on Bristol City at Elland Road on Sunday.

Leeds boss Paul Heckingbottom will also be without Conor Shaughnessy due to an ankle injury which could require surgery.

Deadline-day signing Tyler Roberts will be sent for another scan to determine the extent of his shin and ankle problem.

But there was some better news for Heckingbottom with Ouasim Bouy (ribs) and Kemar Roofe returning to training. Roofe has been through the concussion protocols following a head injury suffered against Sheffield United.

Nathan Baker serves the last game of his three-match ban as Bristol City look to bounce back from squandering a 3-0 lead against Sunderland in their last game.

Italian defender Eros Pisano, who has not featured for the club since October 31, is back in training after a hamstring injury but is not yet ready for a return to action.

Striker Milan Djuric (groin) is due to return to England this weekend after seeing a specialist in Italy.

And midfielder Gary O’Neil (hamstring) is also nearing a return to action for the first time since August after playing for an hour for the under-23 side on Tuesday.
