Lewis Cook will play for Leeds United’s Under-21s tonight ahead of his comeback from a three-match suspension this weekend.

Cook completed his suspension as Leeds fought out a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and he will sharpen his fitness this evening in preparation for Saturday’s trip to Derby County.

The 18-year-old midfielder was forced to miss Championship games against Reading, Bristol City and Wednesday after receiving the first red card of his career in a League Cup tie at Doncaster Rovers on August 13.

He was dismissed for a two-footed tackle on Doncaster defender Aaron Taylor-Sinclair during the first half of Leeds’ first-round defeat at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Luke Murphy, Lee Erwin and Casper Sloth will also play for the development squad against Sheffield United tonight (KO 7pm).
