The Whites confirmed on their Twitter account that an appeal will be lodged tomorrow morning.

Berardi was sent off after 14 minutes at The Den on Saturday, referee James Linington deciding the defender had not only fouled Tom Bradshaw in the box, but denied a goalscoring opportunity without making an attempt to play the ball.

Replays appear to suggest there was little if any contact between the players and Leeds are also likely to point to Kalvin Phillips' proximity to the striker as he hit the turf.
