O'Neil To Miss One-Match

Gary O’Neil will serve a one-match ban following his red card at Sheffield Wednesday last night.

The City skipper was shown a second yellow card for allegedly tripping Gary Hooper in the wake of Lee Tomlin’s penalty miss, although video replays suggest he played the ball.

It proved the key turning point in the match. With both teams reduced to ten men the home side fought back to win 3-2 deep into stoppage time at Hillsborough.

O’Neil must sit out Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship home game with Derby County (kick-off 3pm).
