Kalvin Phillips banned for Millwall’s visit to Leeds

Leeds will be without suspended midfielder Kalvin Phillips for their home game against Millwall.

Phillips starts a three-match ban after his straight red card in the recent defeat at QPR and head coach Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed Ben White will step into the defensive midfield role.

New signing Jean-Kevin Augustin is not expected to feature after completing his loan move earlier on Tuesday, but winger Ian Poveda, signed last week from Manchester City, could be included in the squad.

Leeds have also been boosted by the return to fitness of forward Tyler Roberts and midfielder Jamie Shackleton, who have both been sidelined with hamstring injuries.

Millwall boss Gary Rowett has reported no new injuries following his side’s home FA Cup defeat to Sheffield United.

Rowett made five changes to his starting line-up at the weekend and is likely to recall the likes of Tom Bradshaw, Shaun Hutchinson and Jed Wallace.

Shaun Williams serves the final game of his three-match ban and fellow midfielder Ryan Leonard (knee) is still unavailable.

Billy Mitchell and James Brown are both hoping to feature again after they started at the weekend.
