Leeds have decided not to appeal against Kiko Casilla’s one-match ban after the goalkeeper was sent off against Sheffield United, The Yorkshire Post reports.

The Spaniard was dismissed in stoppage time in the 1-0 loss against the Blades for a foul on Billy Sharp.

 

Marcelo Bielsa had toyed with the idea of appealing but Leeds have decided against, meaning Bailey Peacock-Farrell will play against Millwall after the international break.
