BREAKING NEWS : QPR handed huge boost as Leeds man to serve one-match ban and £2000 fine

QPR will meet promotion contenders Leeds United in their penultimate encounter of the 2023/24 Championship season. The Loftus Road side is currently 18th in the league, with only six points separating them from 23rd-placed Huddersfield as the battle for the bottom continues.

Leeds will host a club hoping to regain promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt on Friday, but they will be missing one touchline player after the FA charged him with misconduct.

Leeds manager Daniel Farke’s assistant, Christopher John, has been given a one-match ban and a £2,000 fine for his actions in the final minutes of Leeds’ defeat to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, April 13. The assistant was shown a straight red card by the match official, James Bell, when the Leeds bench protested the decision not to award a penalty despite what the home dugout saw as a foul on Patrick Bamford.

Daniel Farke said at the end of the match: “My staff members were appealing for a red card, which is also fairly common during a crunch time period. You also need to comprehend the emotions, especially after what happened the other night. I have to ask for an explanation.

According to a statement released by the FA on Thursday, Leeds United’s assistant manager has been suspended from the touchline for one match and fined £2,000 for misconduct during their EFL Championship encounter on Saturday, April 13. Christopher John stated that his behavior was inappropriate in the 97th minute. An independent Regulatory Commission imposed his sanctions after a subsequent hearing.”

John will serve his one-game suspension when the Whites go to the capital on Friday. The Hoops are still missing Taylor Richards and Michael Frey, but they should have no further injury problems as they prepare for a game in which neither can afford to lose three points.
