Leeds United will be hoping that Samu Saiz can avoid being booked for the rest of the month, otherwise the Spaniard faces suspension.

Saiz has picked up four yellow cards in his first 14 Championship appearances, leaving him on the verge of a ban.

Despite being a diminutive figure, Saiz has proven to have a feisty streak, but he may have to curb his temperament now, at least until the end of the month.

On 30th November, Football League players are allowed to pick up 10 yellow cards before facing suspension.

But, up until that date, Saiz will only be one booking away from having to sit on the sidelines for a match.

The 26-year-old has already become Leeds’ main source of creativity, and it would be a major blow for the Whites if they were left without him for a match.
