“The standard three-match ban which would usually apply was clearly insufficient.”
Speaking immediately after the match, County manager Michael Flynn admitted he couldn’t shield the loanee.
He said:”Their participant said he got humiliated, so I will take a look at that and learn what happened.
“When he has bitten him, it’s inexcusable and that I won’t be fighting his corner.”
