Coventry City defender Tom Davies has been handed a three-game suspension following an incident in the Play-Off Semi Final first leg.
In the 21st minute of the game against Notts County on Saturday night, TV cameras picked up Davies standing on Notts County defender Richard Duffy’s ankle – an incident missed by referee Gavin Ward.
Following the match, former Sky Blues’ loanee Duffy admitted that Davies had apologised for the incident and stated that it was unintentional but a three man FA panel have unanimously decided that it was a red card offence and handed Davies a three-match suspension for violent conduct.
Notts County manager Kevin Nolan described the incident as a “blatant stamp” whilst City boss Mark Robins questioned the incident.
Davies will now miss the second leg at Meadow Lane on Friday night and two subsequent EFL fixtures, including the Play-Off Final at Wembley should City win at Meadow Lane.
