Wellington Phoenix striker Roy Krishna handed one-match ban after red card
Wellington Phoenix have lost striker Roy Krishna for one match following his red card against Perth Glory.
The A-League's match review panel proposed the mandatory minimum penalty for the act deemed a serious act of foul play, when he mistimed a challenge in the 63rd minute of the match last Thursday, which the Phoenix lost 2-1.
The striker trod on Shane Lowrys' foot as he made the tackle, but commentators suggested it wasn't deserving of a sending off.
Krishna is the Phoenix's top goal scorer this season, with eight goals from 11 matches. He will miss the match against Central Coast Mariners at home on Saturday.
