For biting newport County defender Ryan Inniss has been handed a five-match ban from the FA.
Inniss was sent off for violent behaviour within an EFL Trophy game that County lost 5-4 into West Ham U21s September 4, on Wednesday and also was billed last week.
The 6ft, online from Crystal Palace, was dismissed late to the incident which involved 18-year-old Hammers left-back Reece Hannam.
An FA statement :”Ryan Inniss has admitted a breach and been immediately suspended due to his next five first-team aggressive matches with the independent Regulatory Commission.
“The conventional three-match ban that would usually use was clearly inadequate.”
Speaking immediately after the match, County manager Michael Flynn confessed he couldn’t defend the loanee.
He explained:”Their participant said he got bitten, so I’ll have a look at this and find out exactly what happened.
“When he’s bitten himit’s inexcusable and I won’t be fighting his corner.”
The 24-year-old, that has captained the book side of Palace and is currently from Selhurst Park on his loan bargain, will miss the games from Carlisle, Macclesfield, Exeter, Swindon and Northampton of Newport.
