Howard banned for 3 games

Howard banned for 3 games

It has been confirmed that Brian Howard will be suspended for the Royals next three games following his red card at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The midfielder saw red for a late challenge on Boro's Andrew Halliday and will not miss the clubs next three games against his old club Barnsley, as well as Ipsich and Preston.

The club will not appeal the decision after viewing the incident again, and it leaves Brian McDermott with a selection headache with the lack of central midfielders available to him. With Jay Tabb still injured, it may mean a return to 4-4-2.
