Yellow peril for Rodgers as Gerrard one booking away from suspension

Liverpool are sweating on losing captain Steven Gerrard for pivotal fixtures in the title run-in as the midfielder is one booking away from a two-game suspension.

Manager Brendan Rodgers says he has spoken to the 33-year-old about the precariousness of the situation – Gerrard has been cautioned nine times in the campaign – but the Northern Irishman has no intention of resting his inspirational captain to protect him from a ban.

Gerrard picked up his latest yellow against Cardiff on Saturday and must avoid one more before the second weekend of April to avoid sitting out any games.

Any player who has been cautioned 10 times by that deadline is automatically suspended for two games. Rodgers admits he is concerned about losing Gerrard in a key period but says it will not influence his team selection against Sunderland tomorrow night.

"We just have to cope with it," he said. "I have spoken to Stevie about it and we just have to be that extra bit more careful."
