Phoenix's Muscat handed two-game ban

  • Phoenix's Muscat handed two-game ban

Wellington Phoenix defender Manny Muscat has been handed a two-game ban for his forearm strike on Central Coast forward Roy O'Donovan last week.

The A-League's match review panel determined Muscat was guilty of "assault on a player" off the ball, moments before O'Donovan retaliated with a 58th minute headbutt in the Mariners' 3-1 win in Gosford.

O'Donovan has been referred straight to a disciplinary committee meeting on Wednesday afternoon, but Muscat was cited on Tuesday and will miss their next two clashes, against Brisbane and Newcastle.
