Cameron McGeehan has been suspended for three matches.
The midfielder has been issued with the ban from the Football Association arising from a charge of violent conduct. The Football Association had this to say:
“Cameron McGeehan will be suspended for Barnsley’s next three matches. The midfielder denied a charge of violent conduct, which followed an incident not seen by the match officials but caught on video in the 54th minute against Southend United on 02 March 2019, but it was subsequently found proven by an Independent Regulatory Commission.”
Barnsley Football Club are disappointed in the decision to suspend McGeehan.
The Club offered the view that the video evidence shows the opposition player moving whilst on the floor, when McGeehan was unable to change the course of his direction in mid-air. There was no complaint from the opposition players, staff or the officials at the time despite it being in front of both dugouts. An apology was then instantly offered and accepted from each player involved.
The games McGeehan will miss are Accrington Stanley (H), Sunderland AFC (H), Doncaster Rovers (A).
The Club will make no further comment on the matter.
