Mariners skipper to serve one-match ban

Central Coast Mariners captain Nick Montgomery will serve a one-match ban after being sent off in Saturday’s clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.

The independent Match Review Panel (MRP) – consisting of Simon Micallef (Chair), Alan Davidson and Alan Contini – convened to consider an incident involving Nick Montgomery (Central Coast Mariners) which arose in or around the 80th minute of Central Coast Mariners’ Round 16 Hyundai A-League Match against Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday, 23 January 2016.

The MRP has the authority to consider the incident as Nick Montgomery was issued with a direct red card. The MRP confirmed that Nick Montgomery will serve a suspension of one (1) match, being the minimum sanction for the offence of serious foul play (when challenging for the ball).
