Bradford City have been kicked out of the FA Cup after fielding an ineligible player in their second-round tie against Brentford last Friday.

The Bantams did not receive written permission for Curtis Good, on loan from Newcastle, to play in the competition by the 12pm deadline on the day of the fixture, which ended 1-1 at Valley Parade.

The decision is subject to an appeal, which if unsuccessful would see Brentford progress to the third round to play Bury or Southend.
