Wilfred Ndidi received a card on his birthday, but it wasn't exactly what he was hoping for...
The Nigerian international, who was looking forward to a rather different sort of 21st birthday present, received his marching orders following a second bookable offence in Leicester City's 3-0 defeat to Crystal Place on Saturday.
Ndidi picked up his first yellow card in the 52nd minute before watching in horror as Martin Atkinson brandished red nine minutes later - the match official booking the former Genk man for diving.

The midfielder started in midfield for the Foxes - he has been involved from the onset in every English Premier League game for the club this season - but will not start their next.
Defeat was the club's heaviest of the season and brought an end to a four-game winning run for Claude Puel's troops.
