Leeds fans are relieved on Twitter after learning that Ipswich Town ace Tom Lawrence will miss Saturday’s clash at Portman Road.

Lawrence, 23, has been in fantastic form for Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich this season, as he continues to provide the Tractor Boys’ creative spark on loan from Leicester City.

Having a hand in 16 goals this season, the versatile forward has scored 10 times against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Reading and Preston as well as providing six assists.

However, the Wales international picked up his tenth yellow card of the season on Tuesday night in the 1-1 draw against Brighton, which will see him miss Ipswich’s next two games.

Leeds fans have reacted with delight at the news on Twitter, as Garry Monk’s side look to make it four wins out of their last six Championship encounters.

Lawrence has caught the eye for Ipswich this term, with Leeds reportedly interesting in taking him on loan for the second half of the season in January.

A win for Leeds against the Suffolk-based side could see them climb up to fourth in the Championship table if Reading fail to beat third placed Huddersfield on Saturday.
