Modeste's Ban Cut
Published : 11 Apr 2012 19:35:11
Anthony Modeste's ban for picking up a red card in the game against West Brom on Saturday has been reduced to just one game.
Modeste was given a red card for violent conduct after kicking out at Billy Jones.
A statement on rovers.co.uk said: "Today (Wednesday) the FA Commission have heard the case on the grounds of exceptional circumstances and have reduced the punishment to a one-match ban with immediate effect."
Missing the game against Liverpool last night means that his ban has now been served.
