Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer has been banned for three matches after accepting a charge of violent conduct for a challenge on Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna.
Referee Peter Walton told the Football Association he would have dismissed the 34-year-old had he seen the incident in the Gunners’ 3-0 win on Saturday.
Bowyer was substituted after appearing to stamp on the French defender.
He will miss Tuesday’s match with Blackpool and cup trips to Millwall and West Ham on 8 and 11 January.
“We have got a good discipline record at this club and stress to the players every week how important discipline is,” said Birmingham manager Alex McLeish. (BBC Sport)
Whilst there is no denying Birmingham’s good discipline record it is equally impossible to deny that Lee Bowyer is a player of average ability who is generally despised by all and sundry.
For those of you who missed the challenge, see video below and wince.
