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.
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.
