FA confirm one-match Steele ban
Published : 10 Mar 2010 13:35:00Rss feed
Steele was deemed by referee Grant Hegley to have brought down Peter Lovenkrands on Saturday and was shown a straight red card with the scores at 0-0. Lovenkrands converted the subsequent penalty and Mark Robins claimed afterwards that the incident turned the game as the 10 men went on to lose 6-1. Robins insisted Steele had not made contact with Lovenkrands - the Dane later revealed he was unsure - and hinted he would appeal against the sending off. But Barnsley opted against an appeal and the FA have confirmed Steele must serve a one-match ban, meaning he will miss Saturday's home clash with Crystal Palace.
