Freeman To Serve Three-Game Ban

Luke Freeman will miss three matches after his red card in the 4-2 home defeat to Brentford.

The attacking midfielder was dismissed for dangerous play when attempting to control a dropping ball with Bees defender Harlee Dean. 

Manager Steve Cotterill said in his post-match press conference that the club was unlikely to appeal. 

It means Freeman will serve an immediate three-match ban, which will him rule him out of action until after the September international break. 

Freeman will miss the home games with Leeds United (Wednesday) and Burnley (August 29th) as well as the trip to Middlesbrough in between (August 22nd). 

The former Stevenage man will next be available for selection when City travel to Birmingham City on September 12th.
