Andy Misses Three
November 5, 2014
Rovers appeal against the red card picked up by Andy Monkhouse at AFC Telford has been unsuccessful.
The midfielder will now serve a three match ban starting with Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Tranmere Rovers.
He also misses the league games against Alfreton Town and Kidderminster Harriers next week.
Manager Darrell Clarke was disappointed at the outcome of this afternoon’s appeal.
He said; “Of course I’m disappointed as I saw two players jumping for the ball. Andy was looking at the ball the whole time and made a determined, but fair, challenge to try to win the ball.”
Darrell added; “Quite how the challenge was deemed to be violent conduct I don’t know. Although I felt we had a strong case to have the decision overturned, we have to accept the outcome and move on.”
