Sydney FC defender gets one match ban

Sydney FC defender Sebastian Ryall has been  suspended for one A-League game after being sent off in his side's  loss to Melbourne Heart on Sunday.

The 23-year-old was red-carded in the 54th minute of the Sky  Blues' 3-1 loss at AAMI Park for dragging down David Williams in  the penalty box.

Williams converted from the spot to seal the crucial win that  lifted the Heart into the top six and dropped Sydney FC to seventh.

Ryall was handed the suspension by the match review panel on  Monday, meaning he'll miss Saturday's away clash against Perth  Glory.
