Football - Smith still banned for Leeds

Leeds striker Matt Smith will miss the home game against Ipswich as he serves the second game of his three-match ban.

PA Sport Report

Smith was shown a straight red card in the recent thrashing at Sheffield Wednesday and Luke Varney is expected to continue after stepping in against Leicester. El-Hadji Diouf, who has not started a game since September, provides boss Brian McDermott with an alternative option.

Midfielders Alex Mowatt and Luke Murphy are pushing for recalls and January signings Cameron Stewart and Jimmy Kebe are hoping to make their third appearances for the club.

Leeds, who have lost their last five matches in all competitions, are chasing their seventh home league win of the season.
