Wilkinson to serve three-match ban

Published Add your comment

Stoke defender Andy Wilkinson will serve a three-match ban after the club decided to accept his violent conduct charge.

Wilkinson caught Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli in the face with his elbow during Saturday's 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium.

The incident was not spotted by referee Mark Clattenburg, but the independent FA disciplinary panel decided the 28-year-old had a case to answer.
