Three Sunderland players are today walking a yellow-card tightrope for the visit of Leicester City.

Four Black Cats stars stand on four bookings and are just one yellow away from a one game ban.

Lynden Gooch, out with ankle ligament damage is one, but Billy Jones, Didier Ndong and Steven Pienaar all start on four yellows.

Jones picked up four bookings in the space of his first six appearances back in the side and will be desperate to avoid going into Andre Marriner's little black book.

Ndong, after a run of bookings, has gone three games without having his name taken, but Pienaar has been on a poor sequence on the disciplinary front, with four cards in his last five appearances, including his red at Bournemouth.
