Leeds: Conor McGilligan reacts to James Maddison suspension

Leeds: Conor McGilligan reacts to James Maddison suspension - Leeds United News

Reporter and Leeds United fan Conor McGilligan has described an update involving James Maddison as a ‘massive boost’ for the Whites.

The Lowdown: Suspension

Jesse Marsch takes his Leeds side to the King Power Stadium on Thursday looking for a first away win of the season. The Foxes will be without Maddison, though, after he picked up his fifth yellow card against Crystal Palace on Saturday, duly incurring a one-match suspension.

The attacking midfielder was shown a yellow card in stoppage time, with all five of his cautions coming in the final 10 minutes of games.

The Latest: McGilligan reacts

McGilligan took to Twitter on Saturday evening to share his thoughts on Maddison missing Thursday’s fixture.

He described it as a ‘massive boost’ for Leeds, with the 25-year-old set to be available for selection against Wolves on Sunday.

The Verdict: Good news

Maddison has been a shining light for Brendan Rodgers’ side in what has been a disappointing season for Leicester up to now, so knowing he will be missing in midweek can only be viewed as good news from a Leeds perspective.

He has contributed to seven goals in nine Premier League games, three of which came in an impressive 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest earlier this month.

Rodgers will have to rethink his game plan without Maddison, who has been a threat in recent weeks, especially when it comes to set pieces, so hopefully that will benefit the Whites as they seek a first win on the road since that monumental final-day triumph at Brentford in May.
