The Football Association have confirmed Barnsley's Nathan Doyle must serve a one-game ban after being booked in Saturday's abandoned game at Plymouth.

The midfielder, on loan from Hull, received his fifth yellow card of the season at Home Park but expected the caution not to count after Surrey referee Gavin Ward called the match off 13 minutes into the second half due to a waterlogged pitch.

The result nor any of the goals will stand - Barnsley were leading 4-1 at the time - as the game will have to be replayed but disciplinary chiefs have confirmed the 22-year-old will miss Saturday's league game at Blackpool.
