Three-game ban for Harris after red card appeal fails

Wednesday will be without Kadeem Harris for tomorrow’s home clash with Millwall.

The club has failed in its appeal over his red card in the victory against Bournemouth in midweek and that means Harris will have to sit out the next three games, starting with the Millwall match and then the trips to Preston and Swansea after the international break.

Joost van Aken is available again after his three-match ban and Tom Lees has served his one-game suspension but missed the Bournemouth victory as his wife had just given birth.

The Bournemouth win, coupled with our 12-point deduction being halved less than 24 hours later, saw us move onto five points and, while we are still bottom of the table, we go into the Millwall game knowing that another three points, coupled with results going our way elsewhere tomorrow, would see us move out of the bottom three.

On the injury front, Aden Flint is expected to be ruled out until the New Year after having surgery on the hamstring injury sustained at Rotherham last month. However, Garry Monk hopes that Massimo Luongo will be fit to return to action from his knee injury after the international break and Chey Dunkley continues to build his fitness in training.
