Banned Foster to miss Blades test

02 November 2009 03:02
The Tykes defender was controversially booked by referee Carl Boyeson in his side's 2-1 win at Peterborough on Saturday and will sit out a one-game ban after reaching five yellow cards.

Foster was harshly shown a yellow card following a 50/50 challenge with Peterborough's Aaron McLean.

Barnsley were hoping to get the booking rescinded, but clubs can only appeal against a yellow card in cases of mistaken identity and Foster will definitely miss the home match with Sheffield United at Oakwell next Monday.

Meanwhile, Jamal Campbell-Ryce (Jamaica), Emil Hallfredsson (Iceland) and Daniel Bogdanovic (Malta) have all been included in their respective country's squads for next week's international friendlies.

Jamaica take on World Cup 2010 hosts South Africa in Bloemfontein on November 17, Iceland play Iran on November 10 and Luxembourg four days later and Malta host Bulgaria on November 18.
